AGARTALA, July 4 (TIWN): Quality Education related speeches failed to reduce stresses of teachers in Tripura, who are bound to attend multiple classes along with various It may sound weird, but survey says, teaching has become the most stressful and challenging job due to work-load. If taking classes means 20% of the teachers’ whole work, rest 80% is regarding other academic activities which the teachers are bound to do including everyday copy-checking of students. For quality Education, teachers who should attend classes by standing (not by sitting) must not to take more than two classes. However, due to teachers’ crisis it can go up to 3 where a teacher can prepare lesson planning to diaries but in Tripura since decades, teachers are bound to take 5 to 6 classes per day amid pathetic teachers-student ratio.

Proxy classes are the main cause of huge stress on teachers, for which no extra payment is also given. Apart from classes, copy checking, year wide semester tests are mounting huge pressure on the teachers and the stress level is higher than any other technical profession.

In Tripura school infrastructure are not up to the mark and are not according to the environmental need. Amid such agonies, numbers of classes are huge in most of the schools of Tripura. However, it’s not a new problem but State Govt yet to start massive recruitment of teachers.

Earlier Law and Education Minister Ratanlal Nath said that 14,000 teachers will be recruited immediately if he gets eligible job aspirants, but soon Minister’s claim was exposed as false as even after having enough candidates, Dept is not towards mass recruitment. It was said, due to Finance dept’s interference the slash in teachers’ recruitment was started.

However, Tripura is not the single state that’s suffering from Teachers’ Crisis. 45% shortage of teachers in govt schools across India, said a survey in 2018, but in case of Tripura more than 5000 B.Ed qualified or undergoing job aspirants are left jobless.
