'We will get degree only, not knowledge'
Poor planning defeats purpose of B.Ed. course for in-service teachers'

Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 25: Poor planning on the part of School Education Department has apparently defeated the purpose of B.Ed. course for the in-service teachers', as the teachers from Udhampur district who are pursing the degree have not received study material or call for personnel contract programme (PCP) from IGNOU. Moreover it would certainly affect the education of students of various schools when the teachers will attend PCP, Workshop and exam in one go.
In-services teachers posted in Udhmapur district informed Early Times that the initiative taken by Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan in collaboration by IGNOU, could not serve its purpose. "B.Ed. is a professional course and it was helpful for us as well as the students of remote areas. But unfortunately we the custodian of education in rural will get only degree without knowledge", said a teacher, adding that as per the guidelines of IGNOU, 15 days PCP, 12 days workshop and internship is mandatory for us every year, during two years' course.
"But due to faulty planning on the part of the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) the main agency nor PCP neither the workshops have been conducted yet. Communication problems in state, especially internet further adds difficulties in the ongoing course. We have not received study material yet. If we approach the Regional Centre IGNOU, they advise us to visit our centre, but unfortunately, there is no study material in Centre", they added.
The teachers said that they have advised the education department to conduct our PCP and workshops during vacation so that the suffering students at our respective school is avoided, but no response has been received yet from the secretariat.
"During our first year in the course, we received our study material just few days before the commencement of our exam, due to delay we could not learn much", they said, adding that same thing is happening this year too. "If the things remain un-changed the course will only give us degree not knowledge, and it will certainly defeat the purpose of this ambitious scheme launched by Union HRD Ministry", they added.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Government of India launched nationwide B.Ed. in 2018, and IGNOU was entrusted the job of course. Following that, the State Education Department had entered into a Memorandum of Cooperation with IGNOU to register in-service graduate teachers for B.Ed courses.
Er K K Bhat, Regional Director IGNOU, Jammu and Arun Kumar Manhas, Project Director, Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan J&K, both could not be contacted for their comments despite repeated calls by this correspondent.
