Speaking on the issues of bogus teachers and shortfall in budget under state school education department, minister for school education and SCERT, Nyeiwang Konyak pointed out that the department faced a serious shortfall of almost Rs. 28 crores in meeting salary needs during 2008-09 due to the large number of unaccounted appointees in the department. Konyak said the implication of the huge shortfall in the department meant that on an average of Rs.10, 000 per employee there was an addition of more than 2000 employee on the payroll of the department from March 31, 2007 till March 31, 2008. He was addressing the inaugural function of a two-day conference of All Nagaland Education Officers at Zonal Hall, Kohima on Monday. Citing various cases of bogus appointments and anomalies in the department, the minister stated that it reflected the failure of the department to monitor the state of affairs. He called upon all education officers to effectively participate in the smooth functioning of the department by submitting monthly expenditure statements required for monitoring and regulating expenditure. The minister also said that re-deployment must be implemented and that the issues relating to proxy teachers had to be addressed. He urged the officers to educate the community and create awareness to take appropriate actions against these issues. Lauding government schools for their improved performance in HSLC and HSSLC 2009, Konyak expressed wish that government schools would be listed among toppers in the next five years. He stated that the Governor’s award for toppers in HSLC and HSSLC was a challenge for all students to compete in the race for quality performance. He was unhappy that some government schools continued to produce nil results. He called for collective efforts to identify the areas where intervention programmes could be introduced which would encourage positive transition for students. Stating that schools covered under SSA were feeders to the government high schools, Konyak said active participation in the SSA programmes would monitor the quality of performance of the students. He also presented some meeting agendas that included redeployment of teachers to be done till June 30, no more private schools in villages, proxy teachers to be terminated etc. Delivering the keynote address, additional chief secretary, school education, Banuo Z. Jamir said that the conference was a time for the officers to share problems and find ways to resolve issues. She called upon the officers to justify their services to the government by performing well what has been entrusted to them saying that the duty of a government servant was to serve the people. On the issues of proxy teachers, excess employees, bogus employment, Banuo said that a Special Investigation Team was being set up under Vigilance Commission to check anomalies in the department. She expressed hope that the investigation would bring about sanity, set rules and check that mismanagement was not repeated. She also asserted that education department was a developing department and encouraged the officers to initiate taking up schemes and programmes under the department for the welfare of the children. During the programme, the chief guest, Nyeiwang Konyak released two books on capacity building on communitization and hand books on communization translated into 17 different dialects. A special number was presented by the directorate staff while director, school education, Nipusilie Angami delivered the welcome address. The programme was chaired by Bendangkokba, additional secretary, school education.
