Education system deteriorates at tribal villages

AGARTALA, April 4 (TIWN): Clock of education system in the tribal hamlets of the state especially at Subalpara of Pencharthal under Unakoti is worsening. The village is having a Senior Basic School located at a distance of 1 km from the market. The school is the only educational institute in the tribal hamlet. It was alleged that the teachers do not attend the school regularly with the students arrives at the school at 10 am. And most surprisingly they keep their books outside the classroom and goes to the nearby jungle to hunt birds. The S.B. School is run by three teachers only. Most of the times, the school remains locked. Despite, tall claims by the state government over the developed education system of the state, but the reality is something else.

The state government claims of 96 percent literacy while education has not yet reached the hilly regions of the state with the students deprived from at least basic studies. Classes are not conducted most of the times. On the contrary, the village is having an Anganwadi centre. Last year the school got demolished after tree fell down on the school. Since the time, the school has been remaining closed and it was not reopened till date.

However, the Left Front leaders of Pencharthal have turned blind eye towards the issue. MDC Sandhyarani Chakma assured the locals to open the Anganwadi centre during the last poll, but no work has been started yet to open the centre. The village is comprised of 80 to 90 tribal families. Despite repeated demands from the BPL tribes, no initiative has been taken yet.

It is mentionable here that Education is the backbone of society. The weakness in educational system means weakness in society. Tripura is one of the good literate states in the Country. But this is only in headcount. The proper education or standard educational curriculum is absent here. It is very basic in standard in school education of Tripura. It is very surprise to mention that most of the youths of the tribal hamlets of the state are deprived from at least basic infrastructure of education system yet today.
