Provide notes in hardcopy to students: NSF to schools

Taking note of some schools providing notes in soft copies to students despite resumption of physical classes, the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has appealed to the school managements to ensure students were provided with notes in hard copies.
NSF president Kegwayhun Tep and education secretary Medovi Rhi said this has become a primary reason for the students to take the excuse of spending more time on their mobile phones or other electronic devices.
Stating that this was undesirable for the overall growth of students, NSF recalled that the shift to online mode of education was only necessitated by the nationwide lockdown to combat the spread of the deadly Coronavirus.
However, with the resumption of normal physical classes now, NSF appealed to the managements and teaching faculty of various schools to ensure that the hard copies of notes and not soft copies were provided to the students. This was, they explained, was to mitigate the ill-effects of the use of mobile phones and other electronic devices on the students.
On salary: Further, the NSF said they were also seized of the matter that salaries of some government school teachers had not been released for a prolonged period of time. NSF said it would be detrimental to the teaching-learning process as the teachers would be compelled to find alternative means of livelihood. The focus on teaching by these aggrieved teachers would be greatly hampered, NSF added.
It therefore appealed to authorities concerned to take the right steps forward for releasing the pending salaries of the teachers without further delay. This was in the interest of the students and teaching community, NSF stated.
