He led a delegation of the association and met Project Director, Samagra Shiksha Swapnil Tembe for filling up of vacant teacher posts in lower primary and upper primary schools in the state.

Rymbai said the association had submitted a representation to the chairperson of the State Education Commission on October 1, 2023 for the creation of posts and shifting of 12541 existing SSA teachers from State Implementing Society to State Education department on regular basis as per provision of RTE/SSA norms.

12,541 SSA teachers include 5814 lower primary teachers and 6727 upper primary teachers under Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan which was earlier known as Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan.

He said there are around 22 vacant posts in the lower primary schools and 89 in the upper primary schools and the matter was taken up with the government.

He also asked the SSA school teachers to increase the students enrollment so that it will not affect the schools in the future.

“The government has come up with a decision to shut down schools with zero enrollment or single digit enrollment. Therefore, we would appeal to the SSA schools to improve and increase the enrollment,” he said.
