“Unless we frame education policy properly and the give right type of guidance, students may become a liability to our society”
Nagaland chief minister, Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu underlined the need for Nagas to prioritize and focus on developing Human Resource Development towards overall progress.
He said this while addressing the 15th Annual Literary Day of the Nagaland University Students Union (NUSU) Kohima Campus, here at RCEMPA Jotsoma as chief guest. Dr. Liezietsu reiterated that human resource development was the only asset through which the Nagas could progress.  He also stressed on the need to impart training in skills to students in institutions in order to enable them to earn their livelihood and not be dependent on the government to provide employment.
Calling upon the students, parents, teachers as well as the public to come together to coordinate and move forward to achieve the need of quality education, Dr. Liezietsu said that the right kind of education was an asset and a very gainful investment for the society. “Unless we frame the education policy properly and give right types of guidance the students may become a liability to our society,” he added. He also advised students not to just get mere degrees to get white colour jobs in the government sector, saying “employment in the government sector has reached a saturation point.”
As compared to Manipur, with about 60,000 government employees, he said Nagaland has about 1.40 lakhs government employees including contract and work-charge employees. In this regard, he asked the students to strive for the best and pursue their education to be independent.
He also opined that classroom teaching should have the corresponding effect with the prevailing situation and to transfer the classroom teaching into practical realities.
“We must have a specific strategy in our education system to impart quality and job-oriented education to our students,” he said.
While stating that the government had opened many schools and colleges in the past to cater to the needs of the public, Dr. Liezietsu however maintained that it was time now for the government to “concentrate more on giving quality education to students.”
Prof. Buno Liegise, pro vice chancellor i/c NU Kohima Campus, who was the guest of honour, also exhorted the students by saying nobody wants to be stagnate in life but to achieve goals and move forward in life.  “We need to think seriously not to remain complacent or be in comfort zone but to be dynamic, work hard and do our best in life and quoted, ‘success comes to doer not fence sitter/observer, ” she added.
Prof. Liegise also urged the students to have a positive attitude towards their studies and said it was their attitude and not their aptitude that would determine their altitude to how far they can reach in life.
She also stressed on the need to pick up skills, become computer-savvy in this information technology age stating that it has become almost impossible to survive without knowing the use of internet and social media.
Meanwhile, the Pro VC informed that the admission to the University for the year 2017 would be done only through online system.
