Banjari school was yesterday locked out due to shortage of teachers. The school is having students from class 1 to 8th and presently 160 students are enrolled in various classes. New students are also coming to taking admission in the primary classes. There are only 4 teachers present here, looking after 8 classes. At this time, the in-charge head master has been transferred, and another teacher will be going in maternity leave. Left with just 2 teachers, the guardians and the worried villagers locked out the school as a protest. The inspector of schools was called up, to have a discussion of the various issues the school is facing. This is just one of the hundreds of schools that are run by govt, in the state, where there is a lack of teachers, where as trained and educated youth is unable to get a job. The state run education is at a stake. Those who are present, mostly being engaged by the govt, for non-teaching works like school building construction, looking after the mid-day-meal scheme, various training programs, which is keeping the teachers away from their core job of teaching and increasing the knowledge of the students. At the same time,private schools are flourishing to make money out of education business. Poor class people won’t be able to get their students educated any more.
There is a acute shortage of teachers – both in the schools run by govt and colleges. There has been reports coming from the entire state that people have been staging protests against this injustice of the govt. Yesterday I happened to be at a village Banjari, in the Sohela Block of Bargarh, where the local villagers had locked out the school in protest. Today news paper Dharitri – sambalpur edition printed 2 such instances in the Bolangir district. Day before yesterday, Cement Nagar (ACC HOLCIM cement factory area of Bardol, near Bargarh dist.) people locked out the UGME school. This is being done with the instruction of the World Bank guidelines for loan sanctions – that govt of India should withdraw support from the public benefit institutions – such as schools, hospitals, agriculture, and allow the private players to come in. The example of such are the contractual teacher employment in schools, outsourcing of the healthcare services – example many equipment and facilities of Burla Medical College being handed over for running by private companies, no new permanent employment of qualified people into the govt. posts. Another big example of loot is the privatisation of the roads – 4 way laning by private companies which will be collecting tolls from passengers, the roads they are making using our money, our material, our land and then taking over completely of the entire roadways. These are the steps of India towards new age “Ghulami” – an economic colonialism. The capitalistic forces are executing their plans very secretively, where as they have been using the name of Development, Shining India, etc.
