According to an official release on July 31, Nagaland’s minister for School Education, C M Chang has mooted the idea of introducing photos of government teachers in schools to do away with the menace of proxy and bogus teachers in government schools across the state.
The Education Minister said there have been numerous cases of proxy and bogus teachers in government schools which has hampered quality education in the state.
In order to do away with the practice of proxy teachers, Chang proposed to introduce framed photos of the actual teachers in all the government schools.
On the deployment of teachers to government schools which has been highlighted by various student organisations, he said that there is no shortfall of government teachers in the state.
Nevertheless, he regretted that it is because of the insincerity of the government teachers as they do not want to be stationed in their places of postings but want posting in selected schools and districts.
He, however, asserted that the department has already taken the approval of the State Cabinet for redeployment of teachers and would be issuing the notifications at the earliest.
Revealing that the present requirement of teachers for the newly upgraded government higher secondary schools is around 300-400, he said, “50 per cent of the teachers would be appointed through conversion of the available post graduate teachers to GHSS teachers and 50 per cent through direct recruitment.”
On the poor performance of government schools, the minister again blamed it on the insincerity of the government teachers. He said that the performance of the government schools and teachers would be checked regularly and non-performing teachers will be penalized.Posted in States
