Govt school students in dire straits

Although, the school began two months ago, there are two teachers for computers and Hindi subject. While, the shortage of classrooms have forced the teachers and the school head to run the classes under trees in open grounds.

The school has about 320 students and has only eight classrooms. There are two sections for every class between class eight and class 10. About 100 students in a class eight are made to sit in a congested classroom, causing inconvenience to both students and teachers.

In the last two months, the students don’t have adequate teachers. The worst affected are the class X students who will be facing the public examination, this year.

Though, the computer teachers were appointed under the Mahithi Sindhu programme, the teachers are not taking classes for non-payment of salary.  The department was not in a position to pay those teachers, an official said. However, the teachers continue to come to school, but abstain from their work protesting against the Government’s apathy.

The teachers are also facing several problems in the school. Even after 15 years of the establishment of the school, the government has failed to appoint attenders and office assistants. The admission process, mid-day meal scheme, payment of salaries are being managed by teachers.

Though, the School Development and Monitoring Committee(SDMC) has written to department of public instruction and the Zilla Panchayat regarding shortage of classrooms and teachers, so far, no action has been taken by the department heads.
