Foreign Scholarship for teachers

New Delhi. South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill and the University of Adelaide recently launched the Ashok Khurana Scholarship for outstanding Indian teachers at the Australian High Commission in the Capital. Weatherill emphasised on the existing ties between the two countries in the field of education and stressed on the need to fulfill the potential and develop quality education. The scholarship is named after professor Ashok Khurana , a former University of Adelaide staff member. He established the scholarship so that he could give back to the Indian education system from which he benefitted.
As to why school teachers have been chosen to be the beneficiaries , Khurana says that school teachers play an important role in our lives. They shape our thinking and help us to inculcate basic values early in our lives. In modern societies worldwide, school teachers are greatly undervalued.
