The quality of a school depends on the quality of its teachers. What students learn in schools is directly associated to what and how teachers teach. What and how teachers teach, in turn, depends on the teachers’ knowledge, skills, motivation and commitment. If school teachers are expected to bring about significant changes in their approach of teaching, the same change must precede and find a place in their pre-service education and programmes for in service professional development. Many teachers in government schools are willing to enhance their knowledge, learn new things and adapt changes as per the changing demands of classroom. A large number of government school teachers are serving in rural areas. It is necessary to examine the facilities available for such teachers to upgrade their subject knowledge and receive support in addressing day-to-day academic challenges. It is also essential to understand basic mechanisms established to provide academic support to teachers.
