Srinagar, Dec 9 (UNI) The “ Peace Education Manual” training for teachers of the Jammu and Kashmir was launched on December 9.
Minister for Education, Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari, launched a training manual for peace education for teachers of Jammu and Kashmir, at SK International Conference Centre (SKICC) in Kashmir.
“Training for Peace Education: Manual for School Teachers of the State of Jammu and Kashmir” has been designed by ‘Save the Children’ NGO in collaboration with Directorate of School Education, Kashmir as a peace education manual for school teachers of the State.
The manual, which is the first of its kind in the State, has been created with the intent to promote and develop relevant training content on peace education for the school teachers of Jammu and Kashmir.
Speaking on the occasion, Bukhari said the State has gone through tough times taking a particular toll on students here and that it is high time that peace education was introduced in the State.
He said that the turmoil in different parts of the world has resulted in the damage to the education to those particular areas. However in Kashmir, besides the turmoil for last few decades, the teachers have tried their best and put in their efforts to keep the candle of education burning and enlightening the society. He added that the teachers in J&K are the best in terms of qualification as well as dedication towards the deliverance of education.
