De-linking Hr Sec: ANCSU seeks ‘window period’

All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) has sought the intervention of the state government on the issue of physical de-linking of higher secondary level (+2) from 15 private colleges.
In a representation to the chief minister, ANCSU president Toito D Chishi and general secretary Tenyesinlo Bukh stated that the school education department and Nagaland Board of School Education issued directives for the physical de-linking of higher secondary level (+2) from the colleges during the academic session 2022 “without prior information” to the concerned colleges, “causing livelihood issues to teachers and discomfort to students wherever higher secondary schools were not available”.
In this regard, ANCSU appealed to chief minister to allow a “window period” and per-mit the affected colleges to continue admitting Class XI admission for this academic session 2022.
The union stated that colleges have faithfully served the state for many decades when there were less Higher Secondary Schools. ANCSU said that to “cut-off this linkage abruptly” would affect the livelihood of almost 100 teachers and may not go down well in the history of education in the state. The union expressed hope that the responsible authority would intervene and deliver justice in the larger interest of the student community.
