Kohima | November 10
Nagaland Education Association (NEA) president Dr. Zavise Rume today said that Nagaland require a clear cut policy on education in view of many challenges facing the present system of education.
“We need a clear cut policy of education,” Dr. Rume said while addressing National Education Day here today at Ura Academy Hall, organized by NEA in collaboration with Ura College of Teacher Education (UCTE) Kohima.
He said that the NEA has once initiated a policy research but could not be materialized due to lack of fund.
“Many states in India have their own education policy. We need an Education Act enacted by law. We need to nurture and strengthen the present system of education like Nagaland Communitisation of Education Act, 2004,” he said.
He also stressed on the need to support the state government towards effective implementation of Right to Education Act, 2009 and also for effective implementation of Universalisation of Elementary Education / Universalisation of secondary education.
Dr. Rume also stressed on the need to explore a suitable method of teacher recruitment.
“We need a suitable law to deal with absenteeism, proxy teachers, low performance, school administration and overall quality in education,” he said. He also called upon the educationists to come together under the banner of NEA to promote “our profession as educationists.”
