Mokokchung, 5 September (MTNews): The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee Public Grievances Department (NPCC PGD) has extended its support to the United Sangtam Students’ Conference (USSC) in its demand for the cancellation of teachers’ transfers and the detachment of teachers from VIPs (MLA), DEO, and SDEOs within the Sangtam jurisdiction.
The NPCC PGD highlighted the following subject-wise shortage of teachers in schools within the Sangtam jurisdiction:
Hindi – 28
Science – 17
Mathematics – 19
General Teacher – 22
Computer instructor – 2
Physical Education – 3
Mother tongue – 9
Drawing – 1
English – 12
Graduate teacher – 1
Primary teacher – 4
Asst. Head Teacher – 3
Head Teacher – 2
and Teachers transferred with post – 63
According to NPCC PGD, the USSC submitted representations on 30 October 2021, 19 January 2022, 8 June 2023, and 8 August 2023; however, they have not yet been addressed.
In this regard, the NPCC PGD asked the current government how a school is supposed to function without subject teachers, adding, “Teachers are meant to be at their place of posting and not to be attached to MLAs or VIPs.”
The NPCC Public Grievances Department also appreciated Dr Kekhrielhoulie Yhome, Advisor, School Education, for showing genuine concern for the school education department and his willingness to address the issues with the present-day government.
Therefore, in this regard, the NPCC Grievances Department reminded the government to prioritize these issues for the welfare of students in Nagaland.
