Government high schools in Manipur's Ukhrul and Kamjong district continue to face the brunt of inadequate teaching staff and ill equipped infrastructure facilities, putting the education of many students at risk for no fault of the learners. 

Raphei model high school and Namrei primary school in north Ukhrul district have also been hit hard by poor teaching staff crunch and shortage of infrastructure.

Speaking to the Imphal Free Press on Saturday, acting headman of Namrei village Stephen Ronra Shimray lamented that Namrei primary school has been reduced to just four teaching staff even though it had classes up to fifth standard. 

The school building is also in pitiable condition, Ronra Shimray said, adding that five staff were posted here earlier; however, much to the dismay of students and parents, one of the teachers was transferred, reducing the staff strength to just four.

Stephen made a strong appeal to the state government, particularly the education Minister and the Education department to pay special focus into the poor functioning of the school.
“Prompt intervention from their ends will surely ameliorate the grievances of the villagers and be a source of true joy for us,” he said.

Meanwhile, Raphei Katamnao Long president Somipam Vashum said that the Raphei model high school has only four teaching staff for 53 students. Its building is also in poor shape with no proper toilets, he said.

The student leader said 55 students are enrolled at Namrei primary school in the current academic session. But three classrooms are in poor shape and are no longer fit to conduct normal classes. The school has no staff quarters to accommodate the duly posted staff, he added. 

The Imphal Free Press had made a series of ground reports concerning the education scenario facing the government schools in Kamjong and Ukhrul district. Many concerned parents and populace from different backgrounds called for revamping the Education system of government schools and pinned hope on the government to revive the ailing sector. 

Prompt intervention from the state government is needed to salvage the mounting issues being faced by the school going children for wants of teachers.
