 3 SDEO, 12 Sr. SDEO, 2 DEO & 290 teacher posts lying vacant

Department of school education (DoSE) is reeling under acute shortage of administrative officers, also indicated by DoSE adviser KT Sukhalu on March 31.
According to documents available with Nagaland Post, of the 252 government high schools (GHS) in the State, 87 do not have headmasters.
Further, out of the 26 posts of sub-divisional education officers (SDEO), three are vacant, while 12 posts of senior SDEO and two posts of district education officers (DEOs) are also vacant.
All these posts have remained vacant due to ongoing court cases initiated by various groups within the department for the last four to five years.
On March 31, Sukhalu had expressed anguish over not being able to fill up so many vacant posts due to the court cases and cautioned that if good sense did not prevail, he would be compelled to requisition officers from district administration or from higher secondary section to run the department, adding that he could not sacrifice the department for “some selfish interests”.
Also, according to an official report of the department, about 100 posts of Math and Science subject teachers are lying vacant, along with 190 posts of graduate and under graduate Hindi teachers. 
Meanwhile, Nagaland School Education Administrative Officers’ Association (NSEAOA), All Nagaland School Teachers’ Association (ANSTA) and two parties of graduate teachers (petitioner and respondent) held an emergency meeting on April 13 where they had all agreed to withdraw the court cases.
Confirming this, NSEAOA general secretary K Ruby Humtsoe told this correspondent that the meeting resolved to withdraw the court cases. He said the meeting also agreed that out of the 300 posts of AHMs/JEOs, eligible candidates of late graduates (in-service graduate teachers) whose documents were cleared would be promoted to JEO/AHMs and that the remaining posts would be occupied by regular graduate teachers (RGT).
He said the petitioners also agreed to withdraw the court case for the benefit of both parties and the department, besides resolving that both the groups would collect documents of those who are in promotion zone and submit to the department for further certification/scrutiny within the month of April.
