ITANAGAR, June 5, 2018: The All Arunachal Pradesh Students' Union (AAPSU) has expressed concern over the poor performance by students of the state in the recent CBSE examinations, terming it a reflection of the dismal education scenario that needs introspection from all stakeholders.
The Class X pass percentage was 22.22 and that of Class XII was 44.33.
"This is a collective failure of the entire Arunachal society but the major share of the blame must be gracefully accepted by the state government and education department," the students' union said in a statement on Monday.
Despite numerous appeals to revamp and overhaul the education sector of the state – be it in infrastructure, shortage of subject teachers, non-supply of textbooks, teachers overcrowding the state capital and district headquarters – no concrete measure has been taken, the apex students' union alleged.
"The state government and education department must pull up their socks and take reformative measures to ensure that such results are not repeated in the future. Passing resolutions in the cabinet alone will not serve any purpose till the government looks seriously into the implementation. The education directorate must review the whole working system of the education department. It should give directives to all the deputy directors of school education in the districts to take action against absentee teachers and ensure discipline in schools with steps such as banning of mobile phones during school hours," a statement of the students union said.
The students' union also said the directorate must also ensure that teachers are not engaged in non-teaching duties and the government must recall all subject teachers deployed as district project coordinators to the classroom.
It also asked the state government to expedite the recruitment process of the much-touted creation of 1,309 teaching and non-teaching posts that were emphatically announced by the state government in October last year but not acted upon.
