Resentment brewing among untrained teachers

AGARTALA, September 03, 2017 (TVN): Serious resentment is brewing in the name of giving training to government teachers. The centre is providing enough funds for giving training to the untrained government teachers.

However, the education department has directed the untrained teachers to take training at their own expense. According to the circular of MHRD the untrained teachers has to acquire their requisite qualifications and training within 2019 otherwise their jobs will be terminated.

 Knowing all this education department is not releasing the unspent funds which was sanctioned for the training programs. The RMSA teachers on 2014-16 sessions has acquired the D. I. Ed degrees from the IGNOU but a large section of the untrained teachers are deprived of this and so they are demanding for training which will be borne by the government as funds are there for their training purposes.

 But the state government is not willing to release the funds for training and imposing this on the teachers.
