The state government is planning to appoint more than 1.5 lakh primary school teachers in the forthcoming session commencing from July, said Basic Shiksha Minister Kiran Pal Singh here on Friday. After laying the foundation of more than 100 different school buildings and offices at Mirzapur, Sonebhadra and Bhadohi, he was talking to mediapersons at GIC ground. He also inaugurated a newly constructed office of Basic Shiksha Vibhag.

Talking to mediapersons, the minister said out of total 1.5 new appointments in Basic Shiksha Vibhag, there would be 40,000 Vishist BTC teachers, 60,000 shiksha mitras and 5,000 BTC trained teachers in the forthcoming session.

It would minimise the scarcity of teachers in the primary schools and improve the basic education standards of the State. The minister rejected the demands of shiksha mitras to regularise them at their respective place of appointment.

He said that shiksha mitra's appointments were on contract basis and their educational qualification was not like other primary school teachers so there was no question of their regularisation.

Singh said children belonging to poor families would get stools and tables, and not ‘tat-pattis’ in schools.
