Shah Faesal calls for continuation of 530 subject teachers
Urges Governor, Chief Secretary to reconsider the matter
Srinagar, Jun 30 : President Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement (JKPM) Shah Faesal has said that Governments 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 issued to KPS, Shah Faesal said that most of the incumbents are highly qualified incumbents, some of them being Ph D 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.
Shah Faesal said that this lot of 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 requirementhas been smoothly flowing in from the Centre 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,” Shah Faesal added.
