Dimapur, August 23

THE staff, students and parents of the Government Higher Secondary School, Chumukedima (GHSS) found themselves at the receiving end of allegations which they have vehemently denied.
Eastern Mirror on August 23 carried a report titled “Students cry foul to nightmare education” highlighting several anomalies as claimed by the students studying in the Government Middle School, Chumukedima and their parents.The report inadvertently linked the name of the Government Higher Secondary School, Chumukedima to the alleged anomalies practiced in the Government Middle School. The confusion arose as both the schools are clubbed together in the same compound.
The Government Middle School with over 500 students conducts classes from standard 1 to 8 and operates independently under a Head Charge, and the Government Higher Secondary School is headed by a Principal, although the two schools are Government schools. The Principal and staff of the GHSS did not deny the instances of anomalies alleged in the published report but wished to clarify the error in the identification of the complaining students as being from their school which has a separate administration.
The aggrieved staff of the Government Higher Secondary School, Chumukedima produced records contrary to the alleged anomalies showing a 77% pass percentage in the 2013 HSSLC Examination and 53% in the HSLC Examination 2013, performances which have bagged the best results amongst Government schools under Dimapur district and among the top ten in the state.
