Though academic session is halfway through many government schools in Nagaland are either without textbooks or mostly shortage of textbooks.
But regrettably authorities and the student organizations, including the Naga Students Federation (NSF) have remained quiet when thousands of deprived and downtrodden students are at stake.
There were complaints from primary school across the state that this year there was shortage of supply of textbooks, while most of the schools are yet to receive complete textbooks, including schools in and around Kohima. Whereas, textbooks, which are yet to be supplied by the government to schools are available in the bookshops.
The mid-term examinations are fast approaching and the schools are perplexed whether subject textbooks which were not supplied to school would also be included in the program of study.
But teachers here said question papers are set by EBRC of the respective districts and therefore if some subjects which were not taught to the students in schools; the students would not be able to write for such subjects.
With the lackadaisical attitude of the state government, the teachers said, the tall claim of state government for quality education was defeated and that it was only in papers.
With the communitisation, the attendance of teachers has improved but supply of textbooks has become irregular feature. School authorities said there have been overflowing complaints from the parents of students but the school education department has remained unexplained why textbooks could not be supplied to the schools.
