The new academic session begins; students are suffering because the government does not want to regularize visiting teachers

Ganjbasoda (Madhya Pradesh): Even though the new academic session in all public primary, middle and secondary schools in the state has already started, students could hardly continue their studies properly for lack of teachers.

A large number of teaching posts are vacant, but the state government does not seem in the mood to regularize visiting teachers in schools and it would be very difficult for existing teachers to cope with the load.

Young unemployed people who have obtained a DEd, a BEd and higher education are teaching in lower paid schools. Even after more than a decade, the state government and senior Department of Education officials sitting idle are unable to formulate a policy to make visiting teachers permanent.

Several events have been organized by visiting teachers at the tehsil, district and state level for many years. Several memoranda were given to Ministers of Education, local MPs and Ministry of Education officials, but they received only assurances.

Students qualifying for the state’s TET exam have alleged that the state’s teacher recruitment process is moving at a snail’s pace. Additionally, newly modernized CM Rise schools would not have teachers appointed recently and students would continue to suffer.
