We urge the coordination unit to submit the list at the earliest possible”, said the chiefs of the local levels univocally. Tok Bahadur Waiba, chair of the Mandan Deupur municipality, said the fulfillment and posting of teachers would be made in the schools within the municipality as per the Education Act and working procedure of the municipality.
The responsibility of teachers’ placement should be given to the local levels, he demanded. Kanchha Lal Jimba, chair of the Mahabharat rural municipality, said they have been facing trouble due to lack of teaches’ posts in community schools of the rural area. “We have sufficient numbers of students but there is no single quota of permanent teacher.
