?48,000 teachers? post to be filled in 1 year?
MINISTER FOR Parliamentary Affairs, School Education, Law and Legislative Affairs Narottam Mishra said the 48,000 vacant posts of teachers in the schools would be filled up in next one year. The Government was also making all-out efforts to see that there was no school without building in the State.
The day is not far when the schools without building would only be seen in dreams, not in reality. Speaking on demand of grants for his departments, Mishra said 48,000 vacant posts on teaching side in the schools would be filled up in the next one year.
The government would also provide 77,000 cycles to girl students in rural areas. However, it was difficult to get such a large number of cycles within a few months from any company or companies.
He said in the next few months 113 schools of excellence would be set up in the State at the higher secondary level. Uniforms were provided to 46 lakh girl students in the past over one year.
However, there were certain complaints regarding poor quality of uniform. The department would look into the complaints. The Minister thanked the Central Government for providing fund for school education to the State under the Rajiv Gandhi Shiksha Mission. He minced no words in saying that the mission had mainly contributed to the revolutionary changes in the field of school education in the State.
He said the Government had provided free textbooks to about three lakh students belonging to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.
The number would be increased to four lakhs by accommodating the poor students from other sections of society as well. He said speedy justice was also on the priority list of the government. Rs 1.32 crore had been sanctioned for construction of 178 court rooms. Videoconferencing facility had also been provided.
