As of now we have highly trained teachers but it had been observed that few teachers spend most of the time achieving their self-interests. The trained teachers should concentrate not only to get the students pass the exams but their motive should be that their students should excel in academics securing beyond 90 percent. The students also should strive to increase their percentage beyond 90 percent. The Government intends to strengthen the educational infrastructure now. Himachal today was second in the field of literacy after Kerela, he said.
