Missing Teachers

November 24, 2021 |

Teaching was once considered a noble profession but in this contemporary world it is just a salary-drawing mode of income with more consideration given to means and less to ends. The two poles of the education sector with government on one side and private on the other are distant apart with the former attracting merit and huge salary while the latter banking on less emoluments and more students thus pushing gullible parents into a state of conundrum. In these circumstances when parents repose ultimate trust on teachers be it government or private, the dilemma is obvious about the state of affairs in the education sector in Kashmir where it’s fast turning into business rather than mission to empower students. The accountability is visible in the private sector to some extent as fee exceeds norms while government pays hefty salaries to its teachers but results are nil. To top it all, the structuring of the teaching system is in mess notwithstanding the infrastructure and financial support of the government. The immediate pre-requisite is to revamp this system for better results as in the case of Delhi where parents of all hues prefer to send their wards to government schools rather than to private due to the standards which have been raised to enormous level by the present dispensation there. However, in Jammu and Kashmir the scenario is worst due to politicization of education by political parties and bureaucrats who have ensured that their relatives near or far are posted in their selected schools without merit but on consideration. The shocking report and subsequent action against the erring teachers who subverted the process of teaching during all those years deserves appreciation. The moot point here is how come they sabotaged a system wherein they avoided being trapped for want of attendance. The administration has taken a tough call of their termination but the rot remains as the prolonged absence in any school would not have been possible without favour or prejudice. Who were in league with these teachers in the schools posted and they were missing for years? This arrangement reflects on the mess in the education sector which has been subject to nepotism. The overall number of teachers who are missing and remained unauthorisedly absent for a period of more than five years exceed those who have been terminated under Article 113 of J&K Civil Service Rules (Volume I) of 1956. These teachers were provided enough opportunities to resume duties, which they failed to do and may have even got their salaries transferred to their bank accounts by the clerks or babus of the education department who continue to rule the roost even in the present regime. There has to be a two-year transfer policy for the clerical staff so as to nip the evil in the bud.
