Neither the Edn(S) nor the Govt teachers have no shame on seeing the result’
Imphal, May 26,
The Matric result declared yesterday sees overall improvement of students but government teachers seems to have no shame after seeing the result, instead they keep blaming one or other for their inability to produce topper students, said Bharat Bushan veteran journalist.
Of the 37,064 students appeared in the class X examination conducted by the Board of Secondary Education Manipur (BOSEM) 27,126 passed reaching the pass percentage to 73.18 % this year. Education Minister Th. Radheshyam appreciated the people of the state for making the society free from disturbance to the students. But the Education Minister showed no signed of shame in seeing the record of how many is able to appear in the examination and how many had passed.
Of the total 37,064 students appeared, 8,419 are from the government schools. Only 4,293 got through with few making its way to first division. 26,926 are from the private schools and 21,767 got through. All toppers from 1st position to 20th position are from private school.
Imphal Times have no problem as students from private schools or government schools are son and daughters of the soil who will bring development for the society in the near future. But a worried over the status of Government schools compelled us to look on what went wrong on the running of the government schools.
Produce below is some of the opinion expressed to Imphal Times by senior journalist, teachers and parents after seeing the result of the class X examination which declared yesterday.
“There is lot of improvement among the students of the state, competition level among them is high and the credit for success certainly goes the government who had improved the law and order situation of the state. This year the state is free from any sort of bandh or blockade or any of agitation which might impact the academic atmosphere of the state”, Bharat Bhushan , founder editor of the Huiyen Lanpao, now a veteran journalist said to Imphal Times.
Bharat Bhusan however said that the competition is seen among the students of private schools, as for the students of government schools he sees no hopes. Justifying on why he said so, Bharat Bushan said that students in the government schools area from poor families and the teachers who are enjoying more salary then the private schools, have no dedication but rather try to bunk class which ever they find opportunity.
Of course these days there are some changes in the school administration, some of the government primary school are improving but to produce toppers students it will take time.
On the other hand too , the government teacher said that lack of continuity in the school life of students is also another factor. Primary school have till class five and elementary school have till class 8 and then after completing the class 8 standard they have to look for some junior school which have class 9 and 10.
“Frequent change of school is also a major challenge for students when it comes to students who are not easily adaptable to the students”, he said and added that a new set up government school starting right from the preschool till class X at least could save the bad name of government schools which is the talk of today’s society.
Mahendra, a lawyer, who always criticised sending their wards to private schools , after getting married and after having a daughter said that I had decided to sent my daughter to government primary school but after seeing the condition and its status , I now felt that I have to sent my daughter at private school as I have no confident government school.
“After all which parents do not want to make their children beast among the best”, the lawyer said.
During a talk show local television, Prof. MC Arun had stated that teachers in government schools are well train but sometimes they felt frustrated in seeing the infrastructure of the school that they have been deployed as the infrastructures that were seen were totally different from what they had expected before joining the school.
The government teacher who talks to Imphal Imphal however suggested that there is nothing call late in doing good work. If the present way of working style by state education machineries continue and improve the infrastructure of the school starting from primary level, in less than a decade , be the children comes from a poor family or rich family class X toppers will be from among the government school, the government teacher spoke with full confident.
