Mr Banshai social activist urged Chief Minister mr Cornad also assist private School

Shillong, May 04: Mr Banshai Marbaniang one of the social activists today sent a memorandum to the Chief Minister Mr Conrad K Sangma urging Meghalaya Government to also look into the private unaided schools for assistance to help teaching and non teaching of thus private school that affected them during this lockdown period.

In the memorandum Mr Marbaniang said that most of private schools here in Meghalaya are under the direct control by the Charitable Society and Trust or Self-funded private schools. Generally in Meghayala, including Govt. funded Schools, Colleges and private unaided schools are being shut due to the lockdown imposed to prevent the spread of the deadly corona virus, also several states in India have asked private schools not to force parents to pay the fees during this lockdown.

If parents don’t pay the school fees, the question that arises is how the teaching and nonteaching staffs of the private unaided schools will meet their daily requirements. In the wake of the lockdown, private unaided school managements have tightened their purse string for financial disburse. They are preempting a possible economic slump in all sectors leading to large-scale default in school fees.

Mr Marbaniang mention that whereas, the State government directing educational institutions to defer fee collection for the time being, many private unaided schools managements are finding it tough to foot their staff’s salary bill. Whereas, most private unaided schools here in Meghalaya survive merely on fees collected from students.

The expenses such as monthly salaries of teachers, support staff and other related expenses are met from this collection, the problems faced by the self-funded private schools of the state that are only able to sustain with the help of the fees which they receive from students.

Whereas, it is also a fact that in view the spread of Corona Virus (Covid-19) all over the World, as well here in the State of Meghalaya, a Covid-19 lockdown started and it has been burn all incomes for the teachers and non-teaching staffs of the minority private unaided schools also like those people who live hand-to-mouth everyday by just earning through a daily wages, they are in very bad shape at this moment and have ceased to function as a precautionary measure to contain COVID-19 due to which, also some school’s parents, are not in a position to pay the school fees for their children’s during lockdown.

Meghalaya State Government funding, financially support has been funded to the poor peoples, laborers, students outside the State, buying of 25 numbers of Ambulance, 25 Lakhs has been sanctioned for 60 MLAs, helping to peoples in quarantined under medical establishment and lots more supporting expenditure during this lockdown, why not the Government officials should turn their eyes to the teachers and non-teaching staffs of the private unaided schools under the State of Meghalaya during this lockdown.

All of them are not richest, mostly all the expenses they are doing only from their salary and also they are taking these job due to lacking of Government jobs and no other jobs which they can do or fitting for them here in Meghalaya. I only hope that the government will look into these matters concerning towards the appeal, so that no one should be financially affected by it. Your kind consideration will be highly appreciated. Said Mr  Banshai Marbaniang Social Activist in the memorandum sent to the Chief Minister.
