Ganjam: Classrooms at the Nimina Adarsh Vidyalaya in Aska block of Ganjam wear a vacant look as the school struggles to meet its academic requirements with a handful of teachers. Most of the teachers here are on deputation as the school is yet to get permanent teachers.

“We are only 4 teachers so there is a lot of course for us to complete. At least a few more teachers are needed,” Suprabha Tripathy, a teacher deputed at the school said.

Meanwhile the campus wears a deserted look as most of the seats at this school have remained vacant. There were fewer students than expected due to lack of publicity, rue locals.

Srikant Jena, Kendupur resident, said, “We are happy that an Adarsh Vidyalaya has been opened here but people are not aware of it.” While arrangements have been made to accommodate 82 students in each class, there are hardy 20 students, informed sources.

On the other hand, Aska BEO (Block Educational Officer) in a letter to the Education Department has requested for recruitment of more teachers.

“The department  has completed the examination process for recruitment of teachers but in the meantime teachers from high schools have been appointed,” BEO Shantilata Muni said
