Kohima, March 23

The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) while expressing its disappointment regarding the failure of the School Education department to take any positive action, has once again reminded in regard to the representation served by it on Non-detention policy, Recruitment of Secondary Teachers under RMSA and detachment of Class-V from primary level. NSF president Tongpang Ozukum and general secretary Esther Rhakho pointed that the NSF had submitted representation on September 17, 2014 demanding revocation or review of Non-detention policy and come out with an alternative measure as this ‘policy is spoiling the academic career of thousands of students.’
Furthermore, the Federation had also submitted another representation on November 12, 2014 in regard to delay in conducting viva-voce for Secondary Teachers’ Recruitment under RMSA, demanding the reasons for delaying the process of recruitment.
They said that the federation had yet again submitted another representation on January 29, 2015 to keep in abeyance the proposed policy of detaching class-V from the primary level till proper infrastructure and adequate number of teachers are provided in each school.
However, despite several meetings with the concerned officials on these genuine and urgent matters, no concrete measures have been initiated by the department till today, they lamented.
Therefore, the NSF has once again put the following demands for immediately redressal.
“Take up Non-detention policy with the central ministry for total revocation or modification as per the requirement of the state. In the meantime, examination should be imposed in all government schools and it should be strictly followed.
Disclose the reason(s) in public for delaying the process of conducting Viva-voce for Secondary Teachers’ Recruitment under RMSA
Delinking of class-V from primary level should not be compulsorily imposed. Rather, the DoSE should first focus on providing proper infrastructure and required no of teachers in all the schools.”
As these genuine matters are directly or indirectly affecting the common interest of the students’ community and the educated unemployed youths, the Federation has strongly urged upon the department of school education to act promptly with seriousness.
The Federation also cautioned that failure to fulfill the three-point demands, it would be compelled to resort to own course of action.
