IMPHAL, January 29:  Addressing a press meet, Advisor N Tomba, Advisor of the All Manipur Guardian Association said during a press meet at its office at Palace Compund that the current Manipur education system is awry and guardians are very dejected with the education system in the state. While appreciating the cancellation of the entrance admission tests to elementary classes in Catholic schools, he said that such schools must implement the RTE and should give free education to  25% of children belonging to other backward classes. “While affiliating to Manipur Board they agreed to follow the rules and regulations of the Board, so they have to follow its directives including implementing the RTE, failing which, they have to have to give up their  affiliation to the Manipur Board,” he said.

Alleging that catholic schools had handed out over 400 admission forms at the rate of Rs 100 each, he said that those who have been given admit cards for the admission tests should be admitted to the said schools.

N Tomba also called upon the Education Minister and the concerned department to take up quick action to them to bring in quality education in the state. 

He further maintained that private and mission schools in their efforts to streamline  student performance, schools are only looking at examination marks and neglects  students who are poor in studies. He also said that students failing in their 9th standard should be allowed to go the next class i.e. class ten.” If any school do not promote the failed students to the next class, action will be taken up against them,” he said.
