DESAM hauls up school teachers for immorality

IMPHAL, Mar 29: Many agitations and protests have been held to bring quality education but where is that quality education gone, asked education secretary of the DESAM, Arambam Thoithoi at a press conference held at its head office at Keishampat today.He further said that on March 4 at around 5 pm an unbelievable and cowardly act was carried out by two teachers named Meisnam Binoy Singh, vice principal, 40 years, son of late M Biramangol and another assistant teacher named Thokchom Romen Singh, son of Th Raghumani Singh, 40 years, at the hostel of Budhachanddra Academy, Kongba Laishram Leikai.On that particular day the warden went for a wedding ceremony and both the teachers forced the students, specially the girl students, to take alcohol and M Binoy tried to molest the students.When the DESAM came to know of this incident it took certain strong decisions which include that M Binoy, who is the vice principal, cannot take charge in the Budhachandra Academy and also cannot work in other institutes and Th Romen, assistant teacher cannot work as teacher for another two years.The DESAM also announced that on April 1 there will be a joint meeting of the school committee regarding the failure of the administration and if the representatives from the school fail to turn up the DESAM will derecognise the school.It also decided that in any part of Manipur whether it is the nursing institute or the other schools there should be a warden in terms of gender.The DESAM also said that they would very shortly start inspection on whether the schools are doing their duties properly and if not they would force the closure of the institute immediately.The students body also requested all the guardians to take active part and check from time to time their children’s activities as acts like the one at Budhachandra Academy might happen elsewhere also.
