AAPSU calls for measures to spruce up Education sector
‘POOR’ CBSE EXAMS RESULTS
ITANAGAR, June 4: The State's abysmally poor performance in this year's CBSE class X and XII exams has evoked sharp reaction with the apex students' organization - the All Arunachal Pradesh Students' Union (AAPSU) - putting the blame on the State Government and the Education department for it.
While expressing its deep concern over the poor performance by students of the State in the recently declared CBSE examination results where the Class-X pass percentage stood at 22.22% and Class-XII at 44.33%, the AAPSU said it is the "reflection of the dismal education scenario of the state", adding that it needs deep introspection and retrospection from all the stakeholders - State Government, Education department, teaching fraternity, students, parents, students' organizations and different community based organisations of the state.
"This is a collective failure of the whole Arunachal society. However, the major share of the blame must be gracefully accepted by the State Government and the Education department," the AAPSU said.
"Despite numerous appeals by the apex students' body to overhaul the whole education system of the State - be it in the infrastructure arena, shortage of subject teachers, non supply of textbook, overcrowding of teachers in State capital and district headquarters etc, no concrete measure has been taken," it lamented.
The Union stressed that the State Government and the department "must pull up their socks" and take reformative measures to ensure that such results are not repeated in the future. "Passing resolutions in the State cabinet alone will not serve any purpose till the government looks seriously into the implementation part," it commented.
The Education directorate must review the whole working system of the department in the State and give directive to all the DDSEs in the districts to up its ante against absentee teachers and bring discipline in the school campus like, by banning use of mobile phones in the school premises during school time," it added.
The Union also demanded the Government to expedite the recruitment process against the much touted creation of 1309 teaching and non-teaching staff as announced in October last year which is yet to see the light of the day owing to reasons best known to the department.
