GUWAHATI, July 31: The Asom Sikshak Karmachari Aikya Mancha (ASKAM) staged a sit-in at Dighalipukhuripar in the city in support of their demand for provincialization of venture schools in the State. They also demanded amendment to the Assam Education (Provincialisation of Services of Teachers and Re-organisation of Educatiol Institutions) Act, 2017 in the forthcoming Assembly session in the State.
In a statement issued to the press on Monday, ASKAM president Kushal Kumar Haloi and secretary Bhubaneswar Lahkar said: “The Act has some critical and complex sections that are out to disqualify teachers who were appointed in such schools 25-30 years ago. Apart from this, around 12,000 teachers and other staff, who were appointed since 2006 in recognized schools, are also at stake. We demand regular salaries to teachers and other staff of schools who were qualified for selection in accordance with the relevant Act of 2011, with effect from January 1, 2013. The schools established before January 1, 2006 and got recognition should also be broad under the purview of the new education Act. Educatiol and professiol qualifications should be one and the same for both provincialized teachers and non-provincialized ones. The new Education Act should have a clear-cut policy for the promotion of third and fourth grade employees. There should be an ex gratia payment for teachers who retired without having to receive any salary and the next of kin of teachers dying while in service. This part, the service terms of venture school teachers who are going to retire after four/five years should be extended by two years.”
