Govt becomes softer on mass transfer of teachers, constitutes committee

State LogoAadil Mir, Itanagar, Oct 17: Arunachal government has softened its stand on the mass teachers transfer issue, as it has constituted two committees headed by the Director Elementary Education and Director School Education respectively to study the individual representation of the teachers. The committees will study and consider the individual cases on the health and other genuine grounds such as teachers nearing retirement and who have already served at hard belt etc.

This was informed by government Spokesperson Bamang Felix while addressing a press conference at Chief Minister Nabam Tukis office conference hall today.
The government had to step back from its stand after the barrage of criticisms from all quarters especially from the teachers themselves.
Felix who is also Parliamentary Secretary Education informed that taking into consideration the few genuine problems affecting teachers in the recent mass transfers, the state has taken the decision to constitute two committees to comprehensively study the individual representations received from teachers from elementary as well as secondary education.
However, he maintained that the transfer affected within the district shall be kept in abeyance till further orders. Felix asserted that the Govt. has adopted a zero tolerance policy in the health and education sectors and efforts are on to ensure that quality education is provided to each and every child of Arunachal Pradesh.
“The Govt. is fully committed to maintain the rationalization process until an equitable distribution of teachers is made across the state," asserted Felix adding that the Govt. will ensure that every school in the state has adequate teachers.
