Studies in govt schools suffer badly with disengagement of over 1700 contractual lecturers since 40 days

Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 25: The unplanned disengagement of over 1700 Plus-2 contractual lecturers working in various government schools across the state, has jeopardized the future of thousands of students, whose syllabus of several subjects is still uncovered that too at a time when the session is at its closure.
Sources informed Early Times that apart from regular faculty members, a total of 1711 Plus-2 contractual lecturers were engaged across the state, which included 752 contractual lecturers in Jammu division and 959 in Kashmir division. These Plus-2 contractual lecturers have been getting a paltry sum of Rs. 10,500 in plain areas while Rs. 14,000 in hard zone areas.
The Government had disengaged the services of contractual lecturers working in winter zone from August 10 while those working in Summer-zone from August 15, 2019.
"Since the disengagement of contractual lecturers, the studies in various government schools has badly hit as students have been left to fend for themselves", a contractual lecturer said, adding that in winter-zone of the state the annual session was scheduled to be concluded in October-November but despite peak session, syllabus of several subjects has not been completed.
"In the government schools, mostly the wards of poor families are enrolled while the children of well off families including bureaucrats are usually enrolled in private schools, so these policy makers are least bothered about the fate of the children of poor families, so they have not even provided lecturers in their schools, even during the peak of session", an official said.
The contractual lecturers claimed that on one hand they had been demanding regularization of their services and their protest demonstration has completed 956 days but instead of addressing their demands, the government had taken another adverse decision against the contractual lecturers by disengaging them. "Many contractual lecturers have been working for more than a decade while some are married and even over-aged but government has not framed any policy for them, which is totally unfortunate", the contractual lecturers said and appealed Governor administration to address their demands without any further delay in view of the students' future as well as contractual lecturers.
