All Nagaland Pre-Service Teachers’ Association (ANPSTA) has welcomed and appreciated the department of school education (DoSE) recent directive to heads of all government schools to ensure that no teachers engaged proxies under any circumstances.
ANPSTA through its media cell has appealed to the responsible authorities to implement the directive in true spirit and take necessary action against those teachers keeping proxy.
Advertise vacant posts of PT: ANPSTA has requested the department to advertise the existing vacant posts of primary teacher (PT) within this year “without making an excuse”.
Failure to do so, the association cautioned that it would take every democratic step deemed legal and the department would be held responsible. ANPSTA alleged that the department “doesn’t bother or take time” to appoint thousands of incapable teachers through backdoor appointment without considering the negative impact on state education system.
However, the association claimed that it was taking a year to make a decision for open recruitment to recruit deserving and well-trained teachers, who have been deprived of their rights to equal opportunities.
Seeks clarification on NSSB: Meanwhile, the association has sought clarification from the responsible authority whether the recruitment process of primary teachers fell under NSSB or district board committee.
According to ANPSTA, during an informal meeting with the school education advisor KT Suklalu at his residence on August 12, 2022 (prior to NSSB advertisement) purportedly stated that primary teachers now fell under NSSB.
However, ANPSTA said that as per school education director the primary teacher posts were yet to be decided whether the recruitment process fall under NSSB or district board committee, thus delaying the recruitment process for PTs.
