Textbook shortage continues to mar teaching in schools

Even as the Right to Education (RTE) has become a Fundamental Right of the children below the 14 year age and the Government is committed to implement it, yet the shortage of textbooks continues to affect students in the Government-run schools here.

According to reports, when the schools were re-opened after the summer vacation, much to their chagrin, the students could not get the full textbooks supplied by the Government. Many students of class VII of PR High School at Balangir could not get history book. Even the Hindi text book supplied to the students of class VII had many pages missing.

This has irked many guardians here. “If the authorities could not provide schools with textbooks for the students, how are they going to ensure their education, let alone quality education?” a guardian asked and demanded a thorough inquiry into this matter.
