Dimapur, Oct. 22 (EMN): The state government has reportedly detected at least 40 teachers holding dual posts in the department of School Education.
A press statement on Sunday stated that this reported detection was made during “the process of streamlining and cleaning the messy” department of School Education.
Minister for School Education Tokheho Yepthomi was also stated to have announced the detection during the inauguration of a new building of the government high school of Ighanumi in Zunheboto district on Oct. 21. Yepthomi has assured that the state government will ‘initiate action’ against those teachers.
The minister “regretted” instances when village authorities reportedly ‘deducts’ as much as Rs 7000 from salaries to allow proxy teachers. While seeking support of all stakeholders to ensure that teachers “come and teach students”, Yepthomi warned that the government will not remain a mute spectator to the “callous attitude of teachers”.
The minister informed that during the course of inspection and checking for irregular teachers recently, it was found that 1830 teachers were absent. He said that the state level education committee has decided to ‘downgrade’ those government schools producing “nil results in HSLC” examinations for three consecutive years.
On the other hand, upgrade will depend on the number of students enrolled to each standard: ten students each at the village level and 20 students each at urban/town level. The committee also found that 281 primary schools were without enrolment and decided to either close down or combine them with the nearest schools, he informed.
