22000 teachers posts vacant in jammu kashmir

National Panthers Party MLA from Ramnagar and working chairman of the party Harshdev Singh today claimed that over 22,000 posts of teachers were lying vacant in the State and School Education authorities have failed to take cognizance of the matter.

Addressing a press conference here today, Mr Singh alleged a break down in the Educational set up in the State. He said that thousands of Government schools were facing acute deficiency of teaching staff with Government maintaining a criminal silence over the issue. Mr Singh said remote area schools were the major sufferers and had almost become defunct due to staff paucity and non-availability of teaching faculty.

The NPP leader pointed the State Government itself admitted in the meeting of Project Appraisal Board held in Delhi in June this year that 13020 posts of teachers were vacant at the Elementary level, with 8014 vacancies in Upper Primary schools and 4916 vacancies in Primary schools. Apart from this, more than 8000 vacancies of Masters, Headmasters and Lecturers were available at Secondary level including High and Higher Secondary schools. The figures provided that schools are facing overall shortage of nearly 40 % teachers, Mr Singh added.

Mr Singh alleged that Government has failed to create posts of teachers/ lecturers and provide adequate staff in schools. He also alleged that Government has failed to launch RMSA (Rashtriya Madhamik Shiksha Abhiyan) in the State though it was started in the country in 2008. He sought immediate intervention of Chief Minister into the matter and said that studies of the students has been badly hit in the State.
