The State government has notified Education Secretary R Rapthap as member secretary of the State Education Commission.
The Meghalaya State Education Commission (MSEC) was constituted in November last year, to advise the government on matters relating to schools and colleges, an issue that has caused a fair amount of distress, especially in terms of salaries.
The commission will give advice on the running of educational institutions, their structures, salaries, management functioning and accountability. The commission will also have to produce concrete solutions and strategic recommendations to usher in reforms in the education system from the perspective of National Education Policy 2020.
This commission will also look at the establishment of an effective mechanism to ensure pay parity for different categories of teachers and the way forward in issues pertaining to teachers under SSA, rationalization of schools, especially those that are unviable or are surplus, have low or zero enrollment and single teacher schools. It will also look into problems relating to availability of language teachers, especially in border areas.
