Imphal, Jul 30: Admitting of the abominable mess and irregularities in the education system of the State, Education Minister L Nandakumar observed that it would take some time to cleanse the system.

Speaking as chief guest on the release function of the quarterly journal “Teachers of Manipur” published by All Manipur Teachers’ Federation today at Hotel Imphal, Nandakumar said that the unlawful practices and irregularities in the education system which has been in practice since a long time back can’t be rectified over night.

It would necessitate a concerted effort from the people, students, teachers and politicians, he observed.

He noted that many persons without receiving any training for teachers have become teachers and as such they incompetent for their profession.

He said that improper appointment of teachers and absence of any thought to appoint the competent ones have made the education system of Manipur of one the worst and corrupted.

Asserting that the Government colleges of Manipur have degraded to such an extent that there are some colleges where there are only teachers but no students.

Without specification, he disclosed that there is one college where there is 50 teachers against 35 students.

There are many Departments in some colleges where there is not a single student, he added.

President of All Manipur Teachers’ Federation Th Yaiskul observed that the teacher fraternity of Manipur has been accusing one another from the highest level to the lowest for the sorry state of education in the State.

University teachers accuse the college teachers for the failure to produce qualified degree holders while college teachers blamed the Higher Secondary school teachers for their failure to impart quality education in 10+2 level and it goes on to the primary level, he stated.

Observing that it’s time for a ‘teaching revolution’, Yaiskul asserted that all the teachers should take their due parts for such a revolution.

Guest of honour of the occasion, MLA Th Tomba remarked that the education system having only demerits but no merit would be disastrous to the society.

He also reminded of the great role of teachers in imparting quality education to the students.
