Imphal, Dec 31,
Socialist Students’ Union Manipur (SSUM) in a statement slammed the government of Manipur over its attitude toward the education sector. The press statement signed by its President S. Yaima Meetei said that the people of Manipur knew that the Education system prevailing in the state is in a big mess and also there is no visible indications which address this issue by the government.
They believe that the first thing to be done to improve a society is to improve its educational sectors. It also added that poor infrastructure of the schools, lack of teachers, unavailability of books; irregular monthly salaries of the teachers are some of the problems of the government schools.
When inspecting the various schools by SSUM saddened cries which were heard from most of the students is that “they want to learn, give us teachers”. They also came to know that many of the government schools have a huge imbalance of students and teachers ratio and lacks of proper classrooms and non teaching staffs.
On the other hand government schools from Lower Primary to high School which are situated in the Imphal area don’t have proper students. Most of the schools have more number of teachers than the students. And also many schools which lack students are residing in 0km radius. So the government needs to make immediate policies to combine the schools having minimal students residing in 0km radius and also to send teachers to the places where they need it the most, it added.
Regarding the change in academic atmosphere where there Is a trend of going to Private tuition and coaching centre, SSUM finds that the infrastructures and the exceeding number of students in a class is unsatisfactory. Unfortunately they also discover certain coaching centers where there are no separate toilets for boys and girls. In the release SSUM claims that they will look into the matter of Tuition and Coaching centers from the coming years.
Further the Student organization wishes New Year greetings to the people of Manipur and especially the students and also wishes the students a success for all those who are preparing for the upcoming Class 10 and 12. And show gratitude to the teachers and believe that the teachers of the state focus on the Modification of Behaviors of the students.
