Absence of language teacher in hill schools severely affects integrity:  Wangamdai

Imphal, May 28: Government effort to improve education sector in the state seems to have not reached interior hill area of the state. A group of journalist including Imphal Times reporter who had recently visited at the Langmei Government School in Tamei Sub division in Tamenglong district witness the school to have been neglected for almost one and half decades. Reporters finds the school without adequate teachers and the infrastructures was disheartening.   
Langmei Government High School at Tamei sub-division head quarter, one of the oldest (established in 1920)  in the sub division area even in the state too is most popular in fact only successfully running in the area with a strength of 457 students from 42 different villages but with only 9 teachers.
The teachers over there were deeply disappointed with Government’s blind eye for so many years and running the classes with no Mathematics and language teachers at all.
With full disappointment tone, Head in-charge of the School Wangamdi told this reporter during a visit to the School said “since there is no language and mathematics teacher we are internally adjusting the vacant very hardly. Arts teacher is teaching mathematics and he himself is teaching Manipuri language into Roman letter”.
 “And improper teaching of language during schooling and degradation of state integrity may have high correlation, he added”.  
This year’s recently announced HSLC exam the school had pass percentage of 61.90 and even had student securing 73% which was the highest in the exam centre. But the teachers highly believe that their performance may be and will be far better if the Government has little eye on their grievances.
While on the other hand, it was informed that the villagers in the area have been yearning for upgradation of Higher Secondary School level and the people were at the best hope when they learnt about the up gradation decision cabinet in the year 2013 and concern department was ordered on 2015. However, unfortunately no necessary work for the implementation has been taken up by the education department till today.
On the other side, the school building construction which was already completed in 2009 were stand still without even inauguration and started crumbling as the building was unattended for so many years.
It was also informed that, now the angered villagers has formed a JAC for Tamei Area Development and has submitted a memorandum stating a series of grievances in the area including the said matter.
JAC warned government for democratic means of public agitations if fails to meet their demand within one month.
Narrating the inconveniences faced by villages because of non implementation of higher secondary in the area, convenor of the JAC NK Job informed that since there is no higher secondary school in the sub-divisional area comprising of around 50 villages, poor parents are forced to send their children to other places. He said, without proper financial support, many students end up living in poorly maintained rented houses without guardians and proper support. Such students finally end up as drop outs or lose their moral characters.
He further draw immediate attention from Government as their negligence highly affect the learning group of their community to its very core again sending children outside is a huge burden to most parents who are living hand to mouth.
