Multiple student bodies back YAA’s ultimatum to DoSE
DIMAPUR — The Joint Students’ Union of Chessore Area (JSUCA), has extended full support to the 14-day ultimatum issued to the Directorate of School Education (DoSE) by Yimkhiung Akherü Arihako’s (YAA) dated January 18, demanding the deployment of adequate teachers at schools in Yimkhiung jurisdiction.
JSUCA represents the villages of Chessore, Y/Anner, Sotokur, Longtoker, K.Aiponger, K.Longsor, Kelonger, Kiussowungto, Shiponger, Kiutsukiur, Kephor, Huker, and Kuthur.
“The mute and lackadaisical attitude of the department towards the genuine demand of the YAA despite numerous appeals is highly questionable and uncalled for,” it said in a statement, adding that, in compliance with the YAA’s directives, it is restricting any admission processes to government schools for the academic session within the entire Chessore area.
Additionally, it informed all heads of institutions, headmasters, and teacher-in-charges under the Chessore area to keep in abeyance all admission processes until further orders from the YAA office.
The union, expressing hope that the department would prioritise the welfare of the students and promptly address the genuine demand, reiterated its steadfast support for the YAA in the struggle for social and educational justice.
YSUK: The Yimkhiung Students’ Union, Kohima (YSUK), has backed the YAA’s ultimatum to the DoSE to assign the necessary number of teachers to government schools across the Yimkhiung jurisdictions within 14 days.
In a note, it was mentioned that a significant barrier to children’s educational progress is the shortage of teachers, especially in disciplines critical to the curriculum, such as Science, Mathematics, English, and Social Science.
The union has requested that the authorities act swiftly, as outlined in the YAA’s ultimatum, to ensure that children have access to qualified teachers and receive a comprehensive curriculum.
The union has pledged full cooperation and expressed its commitment to stand with the YAA until the demands are fulfilled.
SVSU: The Salomi Village Students’ Union (SVSU) has also extended its support to YAA’s 14-day ultimatum to DoSE regarding the shortage of government teachers in Yimkhiung jurisdiction.
In a press release, the SVSU stated that, in the interest of the student community and given the importance of education, it strongly supports YAA’s genuine demand. “The union humbly urges the concerned department to consider the matter positively,” it said.
Additionally, SVSU has informed the head of Government High School, Salomi, to comply with the directive given by YAA until further intimation is made.
