The All Manipur Students’ Union (AMSU) conducted an inspection drive at Chairel High School under the ZEO Kakching at Chairel in Kakching district as part of ‘Campaign for Total Education’ on Tuesday.
A team of AMSU representatives led by AMSU general secretary Bikramjit Thongam conducted the inspection drive as part of the ‘Campaign for Total Education’ which was initiated from 2017 onwards.
In the inspection drive, the AMSU team was accompanied by Human Resource Development secretary Mani Ningthoujam and joint secretary Prikeshwor Moirangthem.
Speaking on the occasion, Bikramjit Thongam said that the Chairel High School was upgraded to a High School from a Junior High School in 2014. Five of the seven teaching staff of the school had been utilised at other schools under the Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA), he added.
He accused the government for neglecting the education for the unprivileged children. Bikramjit further questioned why the five teachers of Chairel High School had been ‘utilised’ at other schools while the Chairel High School was already short of teaching staff. He further urged the authority concerned to take up appropriate action against the remaining two teachers for their absence.
Owing to the disruption during the pandemic the students and teachers had abandoned the school, he stated. The inspection team found the class room covered in dust and dirt, and the lavatory to be filled with the wastes of the local livestock, he added.
Appealing to the authorities concerned to take up necessary actions, he cautioned that AMSU along with the public of the area will commence various forms of protests.
