Governor stresses need for posting HMs in govt schools

ITANAGAR, May 9: Governor BD Mishra emphasized on the need to post headmasters (HMs) in all government schools, which do not have a (full-time) headmaster, in the interest of the students and for proper management of the schools.
Mishra on Friday reviewed various issues of the education sector with Education Minister Taba Tedir and Education Secretary Niharika Rai at the Raj Bhavan here.
They discussed, among others, about procurement of textbooks, progress of opening of the KVs in Daporijo (Upper Subansiri), Hawai (Anjaw) and Namsai, and construction of school buildings, including the Sainik School at Niglok in East Siang district.
The governor, who had earlier conducted extensive tour and had personal interaction with teachers and students at various places in the state, suggested rationalization of posting of subject teachers.
“It is imperative that all teachers must partake, as part of their professional commitment, by working in remote schools for the laid down period,” he said.
Mishra advised the education secretary to expedite the procurement of textbooks for classes I to XII.
The governor also reviewed the progress of school campus development of the Sainik School in East Siang.
“Proper planning, appropriate layout of infrastructure, availability of amenities and optimum assimilation of the natural ambience will make the Sainik School at Niglok an excellent campus,” he said, adding: “Our young lads must be groomed and motivated to become part of the Indian armed forces and for this our schools and colleges must take lead.”
He asked the education secretary to monitor the infrastructure development of the Sainik School and its functioning on regular basis to ensure quality of work and its early completion.
Earlier, Tedir briefed the governor about the progress on various academic issues. (Raj Bhavan)
