Forum chairman FA Tantray said that a special class has been selected for this IMPACT training by the department in which most of the teachers are postgraduate, graduate with B.Ed and M.ed and On the other hand, undergraduate and non-B.Ed teachers posted on general line pattern have not been included in the training which clearly looks a discrimination with a particular class of the teachers.
Forum chairman more said that they always welcomes any training course – with new and innovative teaching methods but selective approach is not fruitful for students.
He said that teachers are being forced by Zeo,s and the DIET officials to open their schools and start class work for evaluation/assessment and grading regarding this IMPACT training where as government has already closed all the schools during the global covid- 19 pandemic.
Forum appealed to honourable LG of JKUT ,Chief secretary and it’s administration to intervene and close this training course, which is currently being conducted for a particular class of teachers during this pandemic.
They said that it is also threat for the students community and where from they arrange the students without the orders of opening of schools by the government.
