All Work and No Pay for Jharkhand Teachers

Two teachers in Jharkhand school have not been paid for 4 years.

About The Video: The last time the two teachers at the government school in Birakhap village, Hazaribagh district, Jharkhand received their pay was on the 26th of July, 2008. 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 Ramdeo Soren and Puspha Hansdsa is proof of the government’s utter negligence towards education in the state of Jharkhand.

Community Correspondent says: Community Correspondent Chunnu Hansda asks the viewers of the video to support the cause of the 2 teachers of Birakhap by calling the District Collectors Office on +919431141943 and request them to reinstate their salaries and compensate them for the four years when they worked unpaid.
