Jammu, Oct 3: Overlooking public outcry and loss of precious time of the students, the state government is resorting to inordinate delay over the posting of third teacher in primary schools opened under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) as approved by the cabinet about four months ago.
 Sources said that the cabinet decision that came in wake of constant public demand on June 3 this year is awaiting implementation and these schools are still being run by two teachers.
 They said that the School Education Department, Jammu and Kashmir put a proposal before state cabinet seeking posting of third teachers in SSA run primary schools following frequent complaints and suggestions about the shortage of staff.
 “Sensing gravity and importance of the matter, state cabinet led by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, immediately approved the proposal and sanctioned additional post of teacher under Rehbar-e- Taleem , but  the order is yet to be implemented” they said.  They said that primary schools are still run by only two teachers, as the education department failed to implement the orders.
 “Two teachers in each school not only share a huge burden by teaching five to six classes per day at an average but are also doing administrative and clerical work which also affect their efficiency,” sources added.
 They also attributed the delay in the implementation of cabinet order to frequent transfer of Director School Education in Jammu Province and said that this has badly hit the process of taking policy decisions and education of pupils .
 “During last nine months, five DSEs were transferred in gross violation of transfer norms blocking crucial  administrative decisions like that of posting of third teacher in SSA schools” sources said.
