Early Times Report
UDHAMPUR, Sept 14: Unfortunate are the students who reside in far flung and remotest corners of district Udhampur as the education system is totally defunct with most of the schools are facing huge shortage of teaching staff which shows authorities' lack of commitment to improve the system. There is about 30 to 40 percent shortage of staff in Government schools in rural belts in district Udhampur while the authorities of the Education Department are looking at the situation as mute spectators instead of taking steps of settling the issue.
As per the data available with Early Times, in Udhampur district 274 posts of lecturers, 272 posts of Masters, 543 posts of teachers are lying vacant but the department is paying no attention to fill the vacancies.
The lackadaisical approach of Education Department towards providing adequate staff in rural and far flung areas of Udhampur district can be gauged from the fact that Government High School Nallah Ghoran in Ghordi Block of District Udhampur has only five teachers against the strength of 125 students from class 1st to 10th.
The school was upgraded as a High School in the year 2005 but the institution is still waiting for proper teaching staff due to which the studies of the students get hampers.
Several locals of the area said that the root cause of the shortage of teaching staff is the reluctance of several teachers to work in rural areas as a result of which they secure attachments to nearby city schools, adding that it is a nexus between higher officials and teachers as teachers enjoy attachments and leave the future of poor students in dark.
They said that there are many schools in Udhampur city and adjoin areas where teachers ratio is much higher than the strength of the students, adding that some teachers manage to attach them in school where there is no need of extra teachers.
The people said that this nexus needs to be busted and those who involve in attachments of teachers should be punished as they play with the future of students while drawing handsome salaries without giving their hundred percent.
Arun Kumar, a student of Government High School Nallah Ghoran said that due to the lack of teaching staff our studies get suffered, adding that how students get properly educated when there is no proper teaching staff available.
Chander Kant, Sarpanch panchayat halqa, Nallah Ghoran said that though the High School was upgraded in the year 2005 and in the year 2009 government sanctioned posts for the school but till date we are waiting for the required staff.
Chief Education Officer, Udhampur Sardar Daljeet Singh said that that there is lack of teaching staff in district Udhampur and there is imbalance in teachers-students ratio. He agreed that studies get affected due to the shortage of staff adding that we will take up this issue with higher authorities so that the shortage of staff could be overcome.
