There are 14 teachers in two schools namely Uma Shashi Nimnataro Uchha Balika Bidyalay and Tarak Das Shiksha Sadan Junior High School for girls. They are often noticed to pass away their times by reading newspapers, magazines and also gossiping.
As there are no students in the schools, there are no managing committees too. Both the schools are housed in good buildings where there are facilities like drinking water, toilets, common rooms and others.
According to the sources, Khabir Uddin Ahamed, the former CPI(M) MP, had donated Rs.2lakh to the Tarak Das Shiksha Sadan Junior High School For Girls to firm the school building. Shibdas Mukherjee, former Congress MLA from Krishnagar (East) had also donated Rs. 1Lakh to the school for the same purpose.
The question is Has the donated money put into use? Were the schools erected?
Deepika Ghosh, headmistress of Umashashi Nimnataro Uchha Balika Bidyalaya said, "The student strength has been going down steadily for several years. We drew attention of the state's education authorities and asked for transfer". She said, some teachers and non-teaching staff had been transferred to other government or government aided schools.
At present, there are seven teachers and two non-teaching staff in the school, which was established in 1969 as part of the Government's policy to spread women's education.
Well, what do you think about this issue? What are the measures to be taken to improve these schools. How about making girls education compulsory in the entire district? What say.
