A teacher can be reprimanded for a students’ poor performance like transferring or terminating their service as per Right To Education (RTE) Act, said district education officer (DEO) Kohima Zaveyi Nyekha on Thursday.
Whenever a student fails to attend class, sports week, SUPWD or internal assessment, the teacher can be punished, Nyekha said while addressing the first ever ‘Manner & Etiquette’ seminar at GPS Meriema held at Meriema Panchayat Hall.
He also stressed on proper implementation of mid-day meal programe and said failure would affect enrolment of children in the school.
On the advantages of availing mid-day meal from a medical point of view, he said free de-worming pills are also given bi-annually or annually and revealed that funds for construction of kitchen under the scheme has been earmarked with plans to introduce smoke oven to create awareness amongst the people.
With the onset of communitization, Nyekha said now the schools belong to the Village Education Committee (VEC). He also strongly recommended for uniform syllabus for students.
Earlier, Krutsolie DIS, Chiephobozou said there were hardly any differences studying in government or private institutions, but the only difference lied on the fact that, in private institutions, students are more dedicated, besides opting for tuition.
“There are many doctors and engineers today whose academic backgrounds are from the government run institutions”, he said.
He also said there are two disciplines - internal and external where the former comes from heart and the latter superficial.
He recommended that one must respect the wisdom of village elders, and cautioned the gathering that today, there are many educated people who have fallen prey to alcohol and drugs.
The formal inaugural function was followed by workshop on the topic ‘Etiquette’s in international and social life’ by resource person Azonuo Viluo, counselor, Kekhrie Foundation and demonstration of ‘Table Manners’ by Khriezonuo Suokhrie, VEC Member.
