DIMAPUR — The Western Sümi Students’ Union (WSSU) has alleged that on many occasions, it has observed teachers being transferred from Western Sümi areas to other parts of the state without suitable replacements being made and urged the School Education department to cease such practices.

In a press release, the union stated that a letter addressed to the department, with reference no. WSSU/APP-01/EDU/2023-25/02, dated September 21, 2023, was submitted regarding it. However, as of today, no positive outcome has been received.

“The department of School Education must understand that the practice of randomly redeploying teachers during the mid-academic session not only severely affects the students’ educational progress but also causes numerous hardships in their careers,” it read.

The union urged the department to do away with such practices and adopt the policy of transfer with replacement for the welfare of the students. Furthermore, it urged the department to provide adequate teachers to every school in western Sümi-inhabited areas, specifically the districts of Dimapur, Niuland and Chümoukedima.

Also, WSSU requested the department conduct thorough verification before initiating the closure of schools in western Sümi jurisdiction.

“The department may notify the WSSU for assistance in ascertaining the actual facts and figures before executing such drastic action,” it said.

Meanwhile, it has also commended the department for bringing several laudable reformations to the educational system of Nagaland and for taking the bold decision to shut down schools with zero enrollment across the state.
