Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that government schools in the national capital will host large-scale Parent-Teacher Meetings (PTMs) on October 13 and 14, urging all parents to be part of this initiative.
Kejriwal encouraged parents to visit their children’s schools and engage with teachers to discuss their students’ progress and explore ways to further enhance their educational journey. In a post on a social media platform, AAP’s national convenor emphasized the substantial impact parents have on their children’s success, designating these two days as “Parents’ Day” in both Delhi Government and MCD (Municipal Corporation of Delhi) schools.
He extended an invitation to parents to join the Mega-PTMs, which are taking place over these two days in all Delhi government and MCD schools, and encouraged them to openly converse with teachers about their children’s progress and how to collectively improve their future prospects. Kejriwal emphasized the ongoing partnership between parents and educators, fostering a collaborative approach for the future.
The Department of Education (DoE) also stressed the importance of the parent-teacher partnership in a student’s overall development through a circular, highlighting the crucial role that PTMs play in facilitating this connection.
The two-day Mega PTMs provide flexibility to parents and guardians, allowing them to choose either day for their participation, thus ensuring the maximum involvement of parents in this crucial dialogue.
