Tokheho Yepthomi, Nagaland Minister for School Education, called upon the untrained elementary school teachers and told them to undergo training as per the HRD ministry directive.
"There is a standing order from Union Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) that all untrained elementary teachers have to be trained on or before March 31, 2019 as per the Parliament Amendment Act section 23(2) of the Right to Education," Yepthomi said as he
addressed the second All Nagaland Government School Teachers conference in the state.
He further said that it is important to see that no untrained teacher is allowed to continue their services in the schools for the greater benefits of the children.
"If any teacher cannot undergo training in line with the directives of Union MHRD, it will be better for those teachers to go on voluntary retirement in peace," he said.
He further said that the government is considering about the possibility of absorbing the 1379 teachers after the HRD ministry terminated the scheme earlier, in April this year.
Pointing out to a lot of things which need to be done in the department he said "we can only achieve our aims and objectives if we all put our heads together in mutual understanding with a sense of belonging from top to bottom".
"While it may not be possible to bring drastic change to all problems in a day or month, it is very clear that if we all give our efforts, in we can contribute to radically different a getter answers to the problems that stand in the way of our society today," Yepthomi said.
