Malkangiri: School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash today laid foundation stone for the building of teacher cluster near Gurupriya Bridge in Swabhiman Anchal of Odisha’s Malkangiri district.
The formation of teacher clusters in the remote areas of the district is aimed at ensuring regular imparting of education in the schools of the region.
School students of as many as seven gram panchayats will be benefited by the initiative for which Rs 8 crore will be spent. Facility for accommodation of 15 teachers will be provided in the first phase, the minister said.
Lack of proper road has been affecting commuting of teachers to their respective schools in the areas. Once the clusters are set up, the teachers will not have to cover a long distance to reach the schools, he said.
