Teachers’ recruitment policy in the pipeline: Radheshyam
Pothashang News Service: Imphal, September 14, 2018: Education minister Thokchom Radheshyam said a policy for recruitment of teachers is in the pipeline while addressing the gathering of the Excellence Achievers Awards, 2018 function held at the indoor stadium, district headquarters, Senapati organised by the Mao Students’ Union in collaboration with Mao Academy.
Every year many teachers retire resulting to shortage of teachers as there has been no recruitment for the past many years except for recruitment of teachers in SSA and RMSA. It results in the vacancy of post, said the minister.
Without teachers school cannot be administered. With the implementation of the recruitment policy, the data of retiring teachers will be analyzed beforehand for each year so that once the teacher gets retired the vacant post could be filled with the new recruits. This will help in lessening the issue of shortages of teachers as the vacant posts will be recruited in time as per the number of teachers getting retired every year, he explained.
The minister assured the people of Senapati that their demands will be met including conversion of the Aided High School into a fully fledged government high school taking into consideration. He said that students have been suffering due to the poor infrastructure above being old school buildings and the department is putting in full effort to improve the infrastructural condition of the schools.
Interacting with the students he said that no matter how many hardships one may faced, experience of life is the best teacher to prepare oneself for the challenges to get the goal of life.
He advised the young minds not to get disheartened by the failure saying that failure is just a step towards success. The students these days are entangled between the school, home-work and tuition. The parents need to review on how the children are being nurtured. Children should be made to learn, think, understand and reflect themselves in the best possible way they could portray. Education, he said, is not just to get mark and a job but it is to lead and makes others lead a better and meaningful life.
Speaking to the students, minister PHED, printing and stationery, Losii Dikho said there is a need to retrospect to the past and present condition for better future endurance. No one can live alone without society, and for this, one should contribute for the betterment of humanity.
Awards were distributed to the students who had excelled in different streams. The ministerial team also visited the government school.
