ANPSTA questions declarations of excess 10,000 teachers

Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, NOVEMBER 30: The All Nagaland Pre-Service Teachers Association (ANPSTA) has questioned how could there be an excess of around 10,000 teachers in the State ~ as declared by Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio during the recent NLA session ~ when the last open recruitment conducted by the concerned Department was in 2015.

In a press release issued on Tuesday, the Association said that the recent statements on excess teachers made by the Chief Minister and the Advisor to School Education, KT Sukhalu were “unjust, detrimental and an attempt to deprive the employable rights of the deserving trained teachers through open means”.
It also questioned how could there be excess teachers when around 250 teachers retire annually on superannuation. The Association stated that it was their right to be informed of how and when the vacant posts of the annually retired teachers were recruited, if not through backdoor.
Further, it pointed out that fellow members of the NLA ‘rowing the same boat’ ~ NPF Legislators TR Zeliang and Yitachu ~ had also raised the issue of teachers’ shortage due to ban on fresh appointments.
The ANPSTA urged the CM to be “an epitome and a luminary leader unbiased to unethical means and walk the talk by laying down impeccable undefiled decree for the posterity of the students and teachers by conducting fair means of recruitment for trained teachers”. (Page News Service)
