Difficulties being faced by secondary school teachers during implementation of Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan in Jammu Division
Universalization of secondary education became one of the important goals of Indian education system after the achievement of universalization of elementary education. Recently, Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan, a centrally sponsored scheme of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, launched in the country in 2009 with an objective of providing universal secondary education in all government schools throughout the country. But during the implementation of this abhiyan, a number of difficulties were being faced by functionaries like CEOs, Heads, Teachers and SMDCs. Thus, the present paper is a genuine attempt to know difficulties faced by teachers during the implementation of Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA) and to suggest some remedial measures. Descriptive Survey Method was used and the sample constituted 150 teachers of 30 Government secondary schools of three districts-Jammu, Kathua and Samba. A self developed Questionnaire was administered.The findings revealed that the difficulties considered as most important by teachers were- delay in receiving the School grants; duration of teacher training is not adequate as per the requirement; non-teaching work hampers the teaching responsibilities; lack of health services and first aids facility in school; no proper monitoring of In-service teacher training programmes etc. The present study has its implications for Educational Planners, Policy Makers, Educational Administrators, Heads of Schools, Central and State Governments, Educationists, Researchers and different Academic Bodies associated with school education directly or indirectly.
