Prolonged teachers’ absence paralyzes Jiribam Govt Hr Sec School

JIRIBAM, September 10: Even as most of the teachers of Jiribam Govt Higher Secondary School were seen in attendance when the Addl Director, Education Department (S) paid an inspection visit at the school last month, the school is now reeling under acute shortage of teachers as many teachers have failed to attend the school after the Addl Director's inspection of the school.

The school is today left with several subjects without teachers.

Subjects which have remained untught due to the absence of the teachers are Drawing & Engineering, Commerce, Hindi, Chemistry and Physics.
