ITAGAR, April 26: The Aruchal Students Federation (ASF) led by its president Kipa Kam in a memorandum submitted to Governor J. P. Rajkhowa on Monday has sought devolution of power to directorate of elementary education (DEE) to hold the power of SSA State Project Director (SPD).

Referring to the order passed by the then governor J J Singh on August 28, 2010 wherein he had directed the education commissioner to bifurcate the directorate of school education (DSE) into two separate directorates for effective educatiol administration, the federation stated that as per the order, various changes were to be initiated in the education system but the same was not implemented by the department concerned.

“As per the order, the DEE was supposed to look after the elementary education which is from Class I to VII including unified SSA-RTE programme. The order also stated that the DEE may hold the SPD post whereas the DSE was supposed to look after secondary and higher secondary education including RMSA, adult education and teacher education but the order was never implemented,” the ASF wrote in its letter.

Also stating that various schools in the interior and remote areas are still facing acute shortage of teachers due to the attachment or deputation or appointment of teachers in the non-academic posts, the federation added that it has now become a tendency among a section of teaching fraternity to absorb themselves in non-teaching jobs which is causing hindrance to the policy of improving quality education.

The ASF further demanded bifurcation of DSE in to 2 separate departments, repeal the present system of separate branch and directorate for SSA, ban further deputation of teachers to non-teaching posts, cancel appointment order of the appointed PGT and TGT in various flagship programme like SSA, RMSA etc and calling back of the deputed teachers who are attached with various offices, a press release said here today.
