Punjab's new Aam Aadmi Party government has promised a “new revolution” in the state’s education system. Read more at

NEW DELHI - A batch of 36 principals from government-run schools in the northern Indian state of Punjab will commence a five-day professional training programme in Singapore on Monday, an initiative that is part of the state government’s wider attempt to upgrade Punjab’s public education system.

The group will be training at Principals Academy , a joint venture between Academy of Principals and the Economic Development Board to help develop Singapore into a thriving international education hub. The programme designed for Punjab’s principals will position them as “vanguards of change” in such a setting, with hands-on adult learning techniques, including through authentic case studies.

Singapore has been a preferred destination to train educators from India. NIEI trained more than 700 teachers from Delhi government schools in 2017 and 2018, who have since then helped improve the quality of public education in India’s capital city.
