Diphu, Sep. 21 (EMN): Lack of sufficient teachers is one of the main reasons for the poor performances in matric examinations, said Nawaibil who teaches at Adarsha Rastra Bhasha Uccha Vidyalaya.

Nawaibil informed the Executive Member (EM), Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC), Education, Richard Tokbi during his regular visits to schools in West Karbi Anglong on Sep. 20 as part of the ongoing education campaign ‘Mission- 2025’.

With a strength of just eight teachers, the school has an enrolment of 515 students with ME and high school combined. This year, out of 130 appeared in matric exams, only 32 passed.

A high school Hindi teacher, Rajesh Kumar said the school has no Assamese, Maths and Science teachers while requesting the authority to look into the matter at the earliest.

Sadly, the area being a victim of wild elephants attack, the school building which was partially damaged during an attack is yet to be repaired.

At Belabari High School too, shortage of teachers is one of the major issues with just six teachers as many were reported to have been retired. With a total enrolment of 510 students, only 14 passed in matric out of 100 appeared.

At Bakriphangaza ME School, Hawaipur, with a mixed medium of both English and Assamese has only five teachers including Karbi language teachers who are teaching 79 students.

When asked about the less number of enrolments, one of the teachers told the EM that most of the students are studying at private schools.

The EM also visited Hawaipur High & Higher Secondary School (combined).

The EM visited Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya (KGBV) School at Dikreng, where dropout girl students were seen given residential education. A total of 117 dropout girls are studying in this residential school. The dropout girls’ students are from remote areas of Jirikindeng and Hawaipur. Apart from learning their lessons the students are taught skill development like making Karbi traditional bags, traditional turbans–poho and other traditional customs.

The EM also visited Rangke Rongpi Memorial ME School, Dikreng, and met with the teachers to enquire about the classes and problems of the school.  Surprisingly, the school has an enrollment of only 54 students with 12 teaching staff. The reason given by the teachers for fewer enrolments was that privileged students from economically better families go to private schools, while the underprivileged students from remote areas and those staying as domestic help in other houses only study here.

At Dikreng LP school the EM witnessed that there are insufficient bench desks where students are seen sitting on the floor to attend their classes.

The EM also visited other schools like Dayangmukh LP School and Kherelajan LP school.

The EM requested the teachers to be sincere in their duties and to give their maximum time for the betterment of education. He also asked the school authorities to keep the school compound clean and maintain proper attendance of teachers and students.
