YUPIA, Apr 22: Education Department, Papum Pare convened its first district level coordination meeting to discuss measures for improving the quality of education of the district's schools including the infrastructural problems here at the ZPC Conference Hall.
Deputy Commissioner Pige Ligu chaired the meeting which was organised by DDSE-cum-DPO T.T. Tara and attended by the former Chief Minister and current Sagalee MLA Nabam Tuki, Doimukh MLA Tana Hali Tara, ZPC Chukhu Bablu, ZPMs, BEOs and BRCs of the Education department.
Presiding over the meeting, the DC underscored the need for taking a pragmatic approach towards improvement of infrastructures of the district’s schools, rationalisation of teaching staff, rollout of a provision to mitigate shortage of subject teachers and other related issues. He further exhorted the PRI leaders to take initiatives such as conducting meetings with stakeholders to know the ground realities. 
While emphasising on teamwork for overall development of the district’s school education scenario, Tuki advised the new PRI members to churn out innovative ideas that would enable solving of the problems. Lamenting on the poor performance of the district’s students in last year’s CBSE exam, the former CM said it is a matter of great concern and serious introspection is needed by the Education department. Formulate comprehensive plans and policies pertaining to the problems and place them at government level, he suggested to the department.  
Doimukh MLA highlighted the need to seek meaningful solutions to the problems and while reiterating the need for demarcating Circle-wise jurisdictions, requested the DC to notify the same. The ZPC appealed to both the legislators to extend financial assistance from their MLA LAD funds for educational development of the district and raised the issue of teachers engaged in administrative jobs. The ZPMs pressed for revival of girls and boys hostels and raised issues such as teachers’ quarters, shortage of subject teachers, land encroachment, stipend for students etc.
Along with the above issues, the DDSE drew attention to the feasibility of merger of low-enrolment schools, revival of the boarding system especially in higher secondary and secondary schools, adoption of schools, Early Child Care and Education (ECCE), provision of water and electricity, infrastructure of closed schools etc. A PPT was presented on the status of schools containing the proposals for improvement of the overall school education scenario of the district.
