No room for ‘morom’— Temjen Toy tells teachers
Kohima, Feb. 25 (EMN): Chief Secretary Temjen Toy on Tuesday said that there is no room for complacency or ‘morom’ reserved for teachers and ‘we have to either perform or perish’.
He was addressing the department of School Education’s introduction of ‘teacher’s diary’ at the Secretariat Conference Hall in Kohima.
Toy expressed hope that the diary will not only monitor the teachers but also help in motivating them to work harder.
