Implement ‘No work No pay’ policy for teachers, says Naga Students’ Federation
Dimapur, June 29 (EMN): The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has appealed to the government of Nagaland to strictly implement ‘No work, No pay’ policy, stating that it has learned about many state government teachers neglecting their duties even in conducting online classes necessitated by the Covid-induced lockdown.
This was mentioned in NSF’s charter of representation to the principal director of School Education, Shanavas C.
The NSF informed in a press communiqué that it has also “appealed to the state government to issue an official order with regard to fee waiver by all the schools in the state,” adding that it should be issued in line with the successive court orders.
The update informed that the NSF executives had a threadbare discussion with Shanavas in view of the pandemic threatening to throw the future of the students in jeopardy.
Stating that the crisis has caused untold hardships to the entire populace, it said “there is a looming danger that a major section of the Naga society will be left with no resources at their disposal to meet their day-to-day requirements”.
The student body appealed to all the educated youths, particularly in rural areas where the teaching-learning process has been hampered by technology divide, to play a proactive role in imparting education to the student’ community affected by the school closure.
It also appealed to parents, who are in the position to pay school fees of their ward, to do so on time to ensure that teaching-learning process is not affected.
It also lauded ‘the Catholic community of Nagaland and all other educational institutions that have come forward to help the needy students in the form of fee waiver during the previous academic year’.
