Private schools flout Government rules on teacher-student ratio putting future of education at stake

Imphal, July 19: 

Many private schools in Manipur have been flouting Government rules by over -admitting students much above the upper limit. According to the Manipur Non-Government Schools and Colleges Recognition Rules 1975, the maximum number of students is fixed at 45 for classes VI to VIII and 36 for 1 and 2.

However, most of the private schools such as Heritage Convent, St. Joseph School, Little Flower School, Nirmalabas High School, Catholic High School etc. have students which are more than the maximum number of students in one class room. Source said that in most of the stated private school number of students in class 1 and 2 exceed more than 60 in one class room. Source from the Catholic run schools however said that it was due to pressure from various people that they have to intake student more than the number fixed by the government. 

“This has heavily compromised the quality of education imparted to the students as the interaction time between the teacher and students in the class are reduced considerably”, a private school teacher told Imphal Times. The teachers’ workload has also increased many fold and are being underpaid at the same time, he added.

There has been a growing public concern about the gross violation of these teacher-student ratio in private schools where parents from all strata of the society spend enormously for their children. If the rules are not followed by these private school management in the coming session, their sheer profit making ambitions are going to destroy the future of school education in Manipur. Sources say, a PIL in this regard has been already conceived by concerned citizens.
