It’s been 4 years since Pushpa Hansda and Ramdeen Soren were paid for teaching in a Government School in Jharkhand.
These two dedicated teachers have worked non-stop despite the lack of pay. The school has not been shut even for a day. They even provide mid-day meals to each and every student at the school.
The video made by a Video Volunteer Community Leader tells the story of these teachers watch it and share this video and sign the petition. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7CNNSDxd_Q
The last time the two teachers received their pay was on the 26th of July, 2008.
' The name of the school is Nav Prathmik Vidyalay, Birakhap, Post Charhi, block Churchu, Zila Hazaribagh. '
Four years since, the teachers have been fulfilling their every commitment to the students and the school - they are teaching, doing the required administrative work, providing mid-day meals but inspite of over 50 complaints to the District Collector, they have not received their salary.
The teachers are caught between their responsibilities and keeping the stoves lit at home. It is testament to their dedication and pure belief that the education of the children has not suffered.
The state of Jharkhand has some of the lowest literacy rates and highest school dropout rates in the country. The miserable lives of teachers Ramdeen Soren and Puspha Hansdsa is proof of the government's negligence towards education in the state of Jharkhand.
