The BJP has asked the ruling party to explain the alleged poor education system to the people during its ongoing padyatra.

At a press meet at the party’s headquarters here today, senior BJP leader Pratap Sarangi alleged that the state government had failed in providing class rooms and teachers for each class in both primary and secondary schools across the state.

Sarangi claimed that out of a total of 34,238 primary schools in the state, 29, 944 schools do not have rooms for each class. As many as 11,744 high schools out of 17,726 do not have class rooms for each class.

The saffron party leader complained that seven percent of the schools are being run by a single teacher and there is one teacher less in 66% government primary school for 30 students.

The former MLA further alleged that 24,446 posts of teachers under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) are still lying vacant while teacher vacancies in high schools number 11,341.

The saffron party leader also claimed that the state government had done injustice to the teachers by categorizing them in different groups and paying them differently for the same work.
