All Nagaland School Teachers’ Association (ANSTA) has said that the delay in filing of reports by the Special Investigation Team is hampering smooth academic process as the teachers and their salaries are being held up during the scanning process.
A joint press release issued by Joint secretary Kekuolhouthie and president Kepelhoutuo Chusi of All Nagaland School Teachers’ Association has stated that rural schools are running with great difficulty due to shortage of teachers especially in Peren district.
It said the government has failed to redeploy teachers from surplus to shortage schools. The release also stated that while distancing itself from bogus teachers, it had some reservations against Special Investigation Team as it may have lost its conclusive vision as a long time has passed by.
It further had some suggestions: let the teachers know their fate as early as possible –whether termination or re-accommodation; as the authentication process for 2007-09 must have been completed, let the report come out first; district wise reports should be given whichever are completed first; the verification process should not be prolonged at the cost of children’s or teacher’s fate, as there can be a reasonable time frame to complete the task.
The release further stated that as school education is not the only department involved in these kinds of appointments, eradication drive for bogus appointments should also be done in other government departments by the Special Investigation Team.
