Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (MS)

Udupi, Feb 2: Students from Jai Hind Aided Higher Primary School in Bellampalli expressed their frustration over the absence of permanent teachers, leading to a challenging learning environment. The protest, held in front of the school, aimed at drawing attention to the urgent need for teacher appointments.

Established in 1947, the school has reportedly been without permanent teachers for several years. The agitating students called upon the District Deputy Director of Public Instruction (DDPI) to visit the school and address their concerns. Despite ongoing efforts, the situation has not improved, with only one teacher per week being sent to the school for the past six years.

With 55 students currently enrolled, the school faces significant difficulties in providing quality education due to the lack of a stable teaching staff. The protesting students highlighted that, although the education department is aware of the situation, no permanent teachers have been appointed yet.

Adding to the challenges, the school's convener, who holds the key to the school, is reportedly unwell, affecting the distribution of midday meals to the students.

Compounding the issues, around 10 students who have completed their studies at the school are now in a state of panic. With only 10 days left to apply, they require confirmation certificates to apply for Common Entrance Tests (CET). The students spend the entire day waiting, from 10 am till evening, for the necessary documentation, further disrupting their academic pursuits.
