Voters’ list work hits state schools

PATNA: Twelve thousand government primary and middle schools of the state have been closed since Saturday (September 14) as all the teachers of these schools have been engaged in electoral roll revision work.
The rest 15,000 schools are left only with one teacher each. The closure will continue till October 14, announced senior leaders of the Bihar Rajya Prathmik Shikshak Sangh, Brajnandan Sharma and Mahendra Prasad Shahi at a Press conference held here on Sunday.

The two leaders said that this long closure indicates how casually the state government takes the task of imparting primary education to children.
The decision of the the state government has also hampered the ongoing 'Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan '(Education For All) meant to impart primary education to all the children in the age group of 6 to 14 years.
In all 6,200 out of 9,766 primary and middle schools of the state are running without a headmaster.
They said that Bihar Rajya Prathmik Shikshak Sangh will take out a 'Shiksha Yatra' from Bhitiharwa on September 23 as a part of the All India Primary Teachers' Federation sponsored 'Shiksha Yatra' programme to promote the 'Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan'.
