K T Sukhalu inaugurates upgraded GHSS at Ahthibung

DIMAPUR: Advisor, School Education, K.T. Sukhalu inaugurated the newly upgraded Government Higher Secondary School (GHSS) at Ahthibung, Peren on February 26.
In his inaugural address, Sukhalu said there were 2,140 Hindi teachers (1,308 under CSS and 832 under state programme) and a total of 830 untrained teachers (223 state and 607 CSS) and necessary instructions had been given to untrained teachers to immediately undergo the required training.
He stated under NCTE rules, teachers should have the requisite qualifications for the teaching profession. However, there were many teachers who, despite time given by the government, had not obtained B.Ed & DLED qualifications and therefore, he informed that the department was working on VRS for untrained teachers.
Sukhalu also mentioned that because of the ban in appointments due to COVID-19 and disruption in recruitment activities for the past two years, the government decided to give one-time relaxation for two years w.e.f 22nd April 2021 for entry into government service.
He added the department would shortly be advertising the recruitment of graduate teachers for Science, Math, and Hindi.
The advisor said that educating the child was a collective responsibility of the department and the community and the government was providing the facilities which were theirs to look after as their own.
He also requested the village authorities, GBs, council members and SMC & VEC of schools to check the attendance of teachers and their services in the schools.
Pointing out that poor enrollment in government schools was a serious concern that needed to be addressed by local village authorities, he said that due to this, the government was compelled to downgrade schools from GHS to GMS to GPS.
Meanwhile, chief host of the programme, advisor, Namri Nchang said it was a historic day for the people of Peren district, particularly the citizens of Ahthibung sub-division.
He acknowledged chief minister, advisor School Education, and principal director, DoSE for fulfilling the dream.
Others who spoke in the programme included advisor, Prisons, Printing & Stationery, H. Haiying, advisor, Treasuries & Accounts & National Highway, Longrineken and principal director, Directorate of School Education, Shanavas C.
