Education seems to be distant dream for 2 villages in East Garo Hills

First Published: 19th September, 2022 10:14 IST

According to the president of the school committee, the school has been without teachers for over 2 years at a stretch at least twice in the last 10 years.

For the villages of Baringre Nengsil and Gabil Nengtek in East Garo Hills, which share the same government school, education seems to be a distant dream with over 60 students.

What is even more surprising is that despite the school being nearly non-functional for over 5 years, a new building with 7 rooms for students and teachers has recently been constructed. However, locals say that there are no teachers. The total population of the 2 villages is close to 400.

According to the president of the school committee, the school has been without teachers for over 2 years at a stretch at least twice in the last 10 years.

In between, after repeated requests from villagers, 2 contractual teachers were posted for about 2 years. However, even that was done away with when the state cancelled all contractual posts.
