One of the key challenges for higher education is to make children employable or self-employed: Naveen Patnaik

Bhubaneswar:30/8/23: Attending the NijuktiParba programme, CM Naveen Patnaik said one of the key challenges for higher education is to make children employable or self-employed. There is a need for students to come out of institutions confident to do something meaningful to their own lives and ultimately, to society, the CM said.
Highlighting the role of teachers & professors as very significant, CM said apart from quality teaching, they should instil confidence, inspire students with positivity & create a sense of purpose in their lives. Only a teacher can do this effectively, CM said and added that he has strong faith in all the teachers, and professors & expressed confidence that they can successfully transform students into real assets of the nation.

Congratulating the Assistant Professors, CM said Higher Education is a major platform for students to enter the world of professional careers. CM added, students take divergent career options from here and contribute to society in various capacities.
CM said that Higher Education is a key sector on which the State Govt is focussing and since 2016-17, Odisha has recruited more than 4,000 teachers in Government colleges.
