IMPHAL, MAY 27, 2016(DIPR): Education Minister Shri Th. Radheshyam and CAF & PD Minister Shri Karam Shyam who is also the MLA of Langthabal Assembly Constituency today inspected Lilong Higher Secondary School and Chajing Kanjeibung Government Junior High School in Langthabal A/C.

Minister Th. Radheshyam and Minister Karam Shyam first inspected Lilong Higher Secondary School and heard the grievances of the teachers. The staff and teachers of the school demanded the Minister to look into their infrastructural needs including toilets and washroom for the female staff. Education Minister assured the Principal and the teachers of the school that all the infrastructural needs will be fulfilled as soon as possible.

Minister Th. Radheshyam said that, it is unfortunate that almost after 70 years of British rule, there is not a single government college building in the State which is in good condition. Addressing the teachers in an informal meeting at the school, Minister Th. Radheshyam said that, to compete with the private schools, a target should be set, to have two Higher Secondary Schools with adequate infrastructures so that in 5 years, 10 government schools can compete with private schools in the state.

The Minister sought cooperation from the teachers to make government schools an attractive and prospective option for every parents/guardians.  He also said the maximum amount of the state income is drained outside the state in health and education sector. He called upon all the stakeholders to strengthen health and education sector to keep the money inside the state.

Speaking to mediapersons after inspecting The Chajing Kanjeibung Government Junior High School, Minister Th. Radheshyam said that, in Manipur the teacher-students ratio is 1:6 which is at par with the global standard. Despite the availability of adequate teachers, the government schools are unable to produce top scoring students in the State. He also called upon the teachers to introspect on the reasons parents are enrolling their wards at the expensive private schools, despite government schools having qualified and talented teachers.

Minister Th. Radheshyam urged the Principal, teachers and the staff to set a target to produce top scoring students from Lilong Higher Secondary School. He said teachers and students should motivate with renewed vigour and greater focus to produce quality students. The Minister also said they are thinking to make a policy to amalgamate government schools.

Minister Karam Shyam said that, Lilong Higher Secondary School is among the oldest and prestigious schools in Lilong to Singjamei area. In the past, the school had produced many brilliant and talented students. However the school is in a desperate condition and needs immediate attention from the education department. The Minister also called upon the teachers to regain the faith and trust of parents and guardians in government schools. He also called upon local leaders and volunteers to help in bringing a positive change in the education system in government run schools. (DIPr)
