Kohima, Jun 21: Nagaland Advisor for School Education, MLA K T Sukhalu today sought cooperation and support from the administrative officers of the department towards strengthening and streamlining the education system in the State.

“You are all holding administrative posts now, but you began your career as teachers having a commitment towards the children and society through the noble profession,” he said.
Stating that presently the administrative officers of the department are a connect to the grassroots, he asked them to take back the message to Government teachers that the service they are in is ‘very noble’ and they need to give personal attention to bring up a better generation of young boys of girls.
He asserted that the Government of the day would endeavour to ensure the facilities in all sectors while education is a priority for the Government.
“Together we can bring change,” he said while appealing the officers.
