Unions demand spl cadre for teachers’ recruitment

ITANAGAR, Sep 25: The Wancho Students’ Union (WSU), the All Tangsa Students’ Union (ATSU) and the Nocte Students’ Union (NSU) in a joint memorandum to the education minister on Monday demanded creation of a special cadre under the department of Tirap, Changlang and Longding for recruitment of teachers.
The unions said the constant transfer of teachers from the three districts was creating shortage of teachers and adversely affecting the students’ education.
“No one from outside Tirap, Changlang and Longding districts is ready to serve in the three districts and are availing transfer with whatever possible means, which is creating difficulties in maintaining the pupil-teacher ratio as per the RTE norms in almost every school in these three districts,” the unions said.
