Daily activities of District Education Office halted

By Our Correspondent

Kapilvastu, Jan. 27

The daily activities of District Education office has been halted for long owing to the absence of employees.

Obstruction in some of the significant works was created owing to the absence of 20 employees and the head of the office. The local teachers, members of various school management committees and other officers who visit to the office to receive services are being forced to return with their empty hands.

After the retirement of tenure of Abdul Rauf, education officer, the office is being unable to carry out its day to day works. The works that is supposed to be carried out by the education officer is pending and the allowances that is to be paid to schools has also been obstructed.

Moreover, ten source persons and four school invigilators are currently receiving 12-day training that has also created hindrance in the daily works of the office. Due to the dysfunction of the registration, technical and account sections, the office has been shut down. The office that used to be crowded with service seekers is now silent and empty.

The four employees working currently at the office are also found warming themselves by staying near the fire. An employee of the office complained that rather than working for the office, some of the employees are working at other places and collecting money. The condition is so worst that the even works like registration has been obstructed and now the peon is looking after the administrative works.

Meanwhile, Pramod Mishra, central member of All Nepal Teacher’s Organisation informed that since the money has not been allocated in time, the teachers were not being able to receive their salaries. "If the money is not allocated in time, then we will padlock the office", Mishra said.

The literacy campaign has also been hindered due to the lack of employees at the education office. Mahendra Shrestha, acting chief of the office, said that since he had no rights to carry out the works of education officer he has no other works than to sit idle at the office.

In Taplejung, the Chinabung Primary School has been closed down indefinitely citing security reasons, after a local tried to attack the school’s principal.

Principal of the school, Chattra Sigdel has come to the headquarters demanding his security.

Taking over the issue of the parents, local Sancha Kumar Limbu vandalised his house, according to Principal Sigdel.

Sigdel said that the school would not open unless there was a guarantee of security.

The school is running with four teachers. Two of the teachers have also been displaced to the district headquarters.

Likewise, teacher Puspa Shrestha of Janaratri Primary School in Sawan has also been displaced to the district headquarters.

It may be noted that the Maiwakhola School in Dhungesanghu had also been closed for a long time, following a dispute between the teachers and students.
