AASSATA not to support ATA dharna

ITANAGAR, Jan 8: All Arunachal Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan Teachers’ Association (AASSATA) has decided not to support the phase wise agitation announced by Arunachal Teachers’ Association (ATA) in protest against non-fulfillment of its various demands, including appointment of Director Elementary Education (DEE) from among senior cadre of the Joint School Education Directors.

AASSATA, in a release said that the decision to appoint an administrative officer to the post of DEE is the prerogative of the Government as per laid down rules and norms.

A gazette notification from Government of India (GoI) has already been issued regarding holding the post of DEE/DSE by IAS officers, it said. Further, "the present Directorate of School Education needs a massive administrative overhaul and streamlining to put the educational administration of the state on the right track, it added.

"To think that by getting a director (DEE) from among its own cadre will mitigate all the grievances of ATA is a wrong assumption because it will only be ‘old wine in a new bottle," AASSATA felt.

However, it supported ATA’s demand for 50 per cent reservation in promotion of AT to JT, provided 50% of the vacancy is reserved for regularization of SSA teachers by reviewing the earlier cabinet decision on the matter, it added.

AASSATA further supported the ATA’s demand for rectification of pay anomalies of ATs. It further wanted to know what the School Education Directorate was doing all these years.
