Meghalaya: HITO urges Lahkmen Rymbui for enquiry into administration of schools in West Khasi Hills
The Hynñiewtrep Integrated Territorial Organisation (HITO) has claimed that there are schools in West Khasi Hills district with insufficient teachers and also with excess teachers.
In a letter to the Education Minister Lahkmen Rymbui, the organisation has appealed for an enquiry into the matter for conduct and administration of schools.
The HITO said, “As per the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 with reference to the norms and standards for a school, it was prescribed that from class I to class V, if the enrolment is up to sixty students, the number of teachers should be 2 (two) and between sixty to ninety (students) is 3 (Three) teachers, between ninety-one to one hundred twenty (students) is 4 (four) teacher consecutively.”
They added, “The latest approval for appointment and posting of Assistant Teacher in Government Lower Primary school being notified on April 9, 2021 was not as per the norms and therefore it was not satisfactory.”
The organisation said that as far as West Khasi Hills is concerned; the SDEO had sent the proposal for appointment.
The organisation claimed that the Directorate had disagreed with the proposal of the SDEO.
The organization has urged the Minister to intervene and initiate action into the matter.
