Ninong Ering seeks remedial measures in education sector
ITANAGAR: Lok Sabha MP from Arunachal Pradesh Ninong Ering has advocated that “revision of central funds to be allocated should be done in frequent intervals, such as that of a year, for the schools in the stat) to get adequate money for maintenance.
Referring to the poor performance of students of his state, the Congress MP from Arunachal East Parliamentary Constituency in a letter to Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar suggested that rationalization of teachers’ posting and transfer should be done as per the prescribed rules, based on the experience, seniority, and performance of a teacher. “The posting of teachers should be done in a manner that each school gets the minimum required number of teachers as per student-teacher ratio,” the MP said in his letter sent yesterday.
The MP lamented that legislators often interfere in transfer of teachers, and that sometimes many teachers are transferred without sending relievers, causing shortage of teachers. “As many as 254 schools in the state are non-functional as of now. Also, in a situation of shortage of teachers, a teacher is bound to teach more subjects, leading to decreased efficiency due to fatigue and lack of expertise in other subjects,” the Ering pointed out.
