Urges admin to reconsider decision
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement (JKPM) chief Shah Faesal on Sunday said that the government’s decision to terminate subject specific teachers will not only snatch livelihood of about 530 educated youth of the state but also leave around 110 schools short of qualified staff in the middle of the academic session.
In a statement, Faesal said that most of the incumbents are highly qualified and some of them being PhD in their respective subjects, a fact acknowledged by Mission Director SAMAGRA in his recommendation for continuation of these teachers.
He has urged that Governor S P Malik , Advisor Education Khursheed Ahmad Ganai and Chief Secretary BVR Subrahmanyam should take a judicious view on the matter to avoid the impending crisis in the education department.
He said that 530 RMSA subject specific teachers was selected through a fair, transparent and merit based process by the state government and there is no issue of salary as their entire requirement has been smoothly flowing in from the New Delhi like other SAMAGRA schemes in different states.
“Snatching these jobs abruptly at this stage would not only affect the academic activities adversely but would also create serious social implications for the female teachers whose job has a bearing on their marriage and family life,” Faesal added.
