IELP fellowship Telangana government refuses assistance to teacher

The News Bureau

It appears the Telangana government has utterly undermined the need to recognize the achievement of a government schoolteacher from Warangal district and provide the required assistance to her.

It may be recalled Niharika Thoutam, mathematics teacher from Zilla Parishad High School in Gorrekunta village of Warangal rural district has been selected for the International Leaders in Educatin Fellowship (IELP) by USA.

Even as the IELP fellowship for 2018-19 is set to commence from January 2, 2018, Telangana government refused to accord her ‘on duty’ permission to attend the fellowship, which she got with hard work and dedicated services to her students.

The only other three participants from India representing Kerala, Nagaland and New Delhi have been accorded permission to go for the fellowship ‘on duty’, but the Telangana government has refused the same on the ground that every teacher will opt for the same if she was given permission. It is time the Telangana government rethink its stand and do the needful in the matter.

It is a great injustice done to the Mrs Nikarika who is Maths teacher at ZPHS Gorrekunta. When other teachers from other states of India has given permission then why not our Telangana Government give permission to a Woman teacher who is very much dedicated to her teaching and is trying to learn new concepts of teaching so that there would be a development of teaching and learning in Schools of warangal especially in rural areas. I would strongly suggest that Mrs Niharika should be permitted with the IELP fellowship and consider her services.

I think Telangana govt is not aware of the mode of selection for IELP fellowship. Teachers are not chosen on lottery system or with personal applications . Applicants are tested in different modes which is not an easy job. One with multiple skills only gets the chance. So Telangana government need not afraid that they have to face Tsunami of teachers to attend this program and they have to provide on-duty facility for all the teachers. I once again appreciate Niharika who is our role model and hope the government will look into the matter once again and encourage Niharika and others in future.

Telangana State Government should give " on duty " to Niharika Thoutam for her commendable services.
Niharika, you should post the problem about " on duty " before KTR. Mention some states are encouraging to attend IELP Fellowship. Why the Telangana State Government is not giving "on duty?" KTR may take initiate. Try your best.
