Careers of hundreds of Nagaland students in jeopardy

KOHIMA, Apr 6 (NEPS): Hundreds of students in Nagaland had to go unprecedented ordeals following rejection of their enrollments in Class 9 & 10 as per the Notification dated December 4, 2013 of the Nagaland Board of School Education (NBSC).

The NBSC, following its Notification, later refused to accept enrolment of students to Class 9 & 10 from 129 Government High Schools with effect from the academic session of 2014.

Under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), a flagship program of the Central Government, the Nagaland State since 2008 till 2012 – received a total of Rs 21665.89 lakh (two-hundred sixteen crore sixty-five lakh eighty-nine thousand.)

The objective of this Center’s flagship program is to make free and compulsory education to children in the age group of 6-14 years – a Fundamental right.

On the contrary, hundreds of students in Nagaland have been denied their enrolment to Class 9 & 10. Their careers are in jeopardy. Student bodies, civil societies and concerned citizens should raise their voice against this.
