ENSF empowers units to curb proxy teaching
Dimapur, August 3 (EMN): Embarking on the mission to provide quality education in the four districts of Tuensang, Mon, Kiphire and Longleng, the Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) has empowered all its federating units to tackle the issues pertaining to proxy teaching in the said districts.
ENSF observed that almost all schools in Eastern Nagaland are functioning without adequate teachers coupled with existence of several proxy teachers.
The Federation, while emphasising its utmost concern on education sector, had seriously viewed on the issue during its recently held presidential meeting with the Confederation of Chang Students’ Union (CCSU), Phom Students’ Conference (PSC), Yimchunger Akheru Arihako (YAA), United Sangtam Students’ Conference (USSC), Khiamniungan Students’ Union (KSU) and Konyak Students’ Union (KSU) at DUDA Guest House, Kohima.
The Federation assistant general secretary, Kumcho Yimchunger, lamented that despite its effort and repeated appeal, not much have been initiated or resolved till today by the concerned authorities.
“Such attitudes and policy had rather culminated to a point in igniting more illiteracy within the Eastern jurisdiction,” the press release said.
Therefore, in order to resolve the issue, the Federation has empowered all the federating units to tackle the issues pertaining to proxy teachers in pursuance to the minutes adopted during its presidential meeting. The Federation further directed all the departmental officers within its jurisdiction to be in station at their respective place of posting. It further cautioned that the Federation would initiate action against those erring officers.
