Kwatha Govt. Junior High School, the only govt. school in Kwatha Village in Chandel district is run by a substitute teacher as no government teachers had shown up their face on permanent basis. Besides, the ongoing construction works for building of the school under RAMSA has failed to maintain quality control, while the old building is left unattended by the concern authority.
Chaoba (notrel name), a substitute teacher while talking to reports who visited the school today said that they have sought for proper maintenance of the school numerous times but all effort went in vain.
As the teachers who were posted in the school did not turn up, he was left with no choice but to take the charge as substitute teacher to teach the students of the village, he added.
Chaoba also said that it has been more than a year that the newly constructed school building is also left unfinished. The materials like roof tin and others also did not meet the quality that the village authorities have sought from the concern department.
If they keep on using the same current materials, the school will not last long.
The school could be wiped away if any natural calamity happens at any time, he added.
Chaoba further said that the village has more than 70 children and many of them have been put at various part of the state for schooling due to the apathy of the Education department to ensure Right to Education in the village for primary students.
He said two teachers were posted at the junior high school, but one of them has remained absent on a permanent basis while other got transfer. So far the school has not received any facilities, yet the concern Education department has failed to monitor the school till date.
Many of the students were still waiting for the government teacher to be sent to the school to teach team with full facilities for each one of them.
Once the new school building is completed, more students could be expected as for current, around 40 students are attending the old school building which has upto Class 3 starting from pre-nursery, he added.
Kwtha is a small, neglected village of Manipur located in Tengnoupal of Chandel district, tucked along the Indo-Myanmar border and tracing its history back to the 1819 Burmese invasion.
The village has around 77 houses with population of more than 350.
