Dozens of meetings with Advisor fails to secure extension for 550 SSPG teachers
Studies badly hampered in Govt High Schools since August 15

Early Times Report
Jammu, Oct 17: The studies in most of the Government High Schools has badly hampered since August 15, when government had refused to extend the services of over 550 Subject Specific Post Graduate (SSPG) Teachers, engaged since 2018, causing irreparable losses to students, who have no one to teach several subjects.
Subject Specific Post Graduate Teachers (SSPGT) informed Early Times that over 550 of them were engaged in February 2018 in over 110 Government High Schools, after following a proper selection procedure. Their engagement was beneficial for working of Government High Schools, which have been facing acute shortage of staff especially for Class 8th, 9th and 10th students.
"The government gave extension of one year till February 2019 and refused to give further extension and on 9th March, in a meeting of State Administrative Council (SAC), one month's extension was given to the teachers of Summer division after one month's break from April 1 to 30th June, while Kashmir valley teachers were not given any break", the teachers said, adding that once again, a last extension of one month from 10th July to 10th August was given to winter zone teachers while 15th July to 15th August to summer zone teachers.
After expiry of the time, the teachers were disengaged, leaving students of Government High Schools in midway. "Time and again, our delegations called on Advisor to Governor and every time, they assured that their issue is in process and in the next meeting of SAC the decision of their extension will be taken", the teachers said, adding that in the last over two months, they had called on Advisor, on over 10 occasions and at every time, the reply was same and onus was on SAC meeting.
"But SAC had met many a times, in these two months but our issue was never taken into consideration", the teachers lambasted, adding that it was hoped that during Governor rule, administrative works were executed smoothly without wastage of time, but it proved to be a farce.
The teachers said that the worst sufferers were the students of government schools, whose syllabus was partially covered and the exams of Class 8th and 9th have been undergoing but without teachers, how these gullible students of poor families would compete, is a million dollar question. "The policies of government has been destroying the government education sector for some unknown reasons", the teachers alleged.
