Navi Mumbai: NMMC CBSE school runs only for 2.5 hrs due to lack of staff

The Municipal CBSE schools in Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) started from August 4, 2018, one at Seawoods and one at Koparkhairane, however, due to insufficient teachers, education in the CBSE schools run by the municipality has come to a standstill, as per the report by Loksatta. The question has arisen whether there will be enough teachers in the new academic year. On the one hand, there are enough teachers in the school given to run the institute, while the school in Koparkhairane, which is run by the municipality, has only 5 teachers and one principal for nearly 1300 students.

In the school run by Akanksha Sanstha at Seawoods there are 1,128 children with 52 teachers and 7 helpers while in Koparkhairane, school is run only for 2 to 2.30 hours due to lack of teachers. Because of this, some parents are in a position to withdraw their children from this school and send them to another school. CBSE's Koparkhairane School is an example of how children's education is being played around without adequate teachers. The new academic year of CBSE school had started after the results. But there are almost 1375 students from nursery to 6th standard and there are only 5 teachers and 1 principal in this school.

Due to this, the municipal administration is trying to get enough teachers in Koparkhairane school as well”, said Sulabha Barghare, Coordinator CBSE School, Navi Mumbai.
