BY | Thursday, 18 August, 2022

The United Sangtam Students Conference (USSC) issued a press release today highlighting the lack of teachers in Government Higher Secondary School (GHSS) Kiphire.

The release states that the USSC had donated school benches and desks for classes XI and XII when it came to their knowledge that the school was facing a shortage due to “limited resources” and a high influx of students enrolled in both classes: 161 students in class XI and 78 students in class XII.

The USSC expressed their gratitude to the Department of School Education and the government of Nagaland for “introducing the science stream at GHSS Kiphire”. However, the release points out that classes for the science stream have yet to start even while the academic year of 2022-23 is nearing its end. The release further states that while five science teachers are attached to the GHSS Kiphire, two teachers have still not joined their posts.

“Therefore, the conference made this sincere appeal to the concerned department to direct the teachers who are posted at Kiphire to join their respective posting places and start the class within 10 days as per government notification No. EDS/GHSS/4-3/2007(pt-1)/36 Dated Kohima the 21st of July 2022,” reads the release.

In addition, the release also highlights the shortage of Postgraduate Teachers (PGTs) since the school upgraded to Higher Secondary School. In spite of “repeated representation and ultimatums by the USSC and school authority”, the release states, GHSS Kiphire faces a shortage of two English PGTs and one sociology PGT.

The USSC release ends with an appeal to “the competent authority” to take their requests as “top priority for the welfare of the student community at the earliest as possible.”
