Imphal, Sept 3
Concerning about the rising competition of gifts given to teachers for the celebration of Teachers’ Day making the celebration a day only for the rich students, Joint Students Coordination Committee boycotts Teachers’ Day celebration to be held on 5th September.
Speaking to media persons in a press meet held today at the conference hall of All Manipur Students’ Union DM College Campus, Convener of JSCC Peter Laishram stressed that the Teachers’ Day celebration in the present society becomes more of a celebration concerning only the rich students.
He added that the rising competition of gifts given to the teachers create the relationship between student and teacher into a mere luxury one.
Condemning such relationship where the teacher and students turn into a luxury one he said that such change made the poor and helpless student think that there is no teacher left for them.
Peter further said that JSCC are strongly concerned about such changing relationship between the students and teachers as a part of the Teachers’ Day Celebration and appealed to stop such act.
He further urged school, college and educational institutions not to organize Teachers Day celebration on September 5 even though they held it in previous years and added that they can organize it on any day or on International Teachers Day which is held on October 5.
He concluded that JSCC will also look into the incident where two students of SMART Universal Academy were brutally beaten by the Secretary.
