Educationists from 22 states, including Vice Chancellors of 13 universities, will discuss a new policy framework for education during a two-day international conference titled "Samarth Shiksha, Samarth Bharat" beginning January 17.
Vice chancellors from across the country on Monday resolved to bring the entire gamut of teacher education under university system, rationalise the duration of the B.Ed and M.Ed courses and ask teacher training institutes to go for mandatory accreditation.
