AIZAWL, July 2 - Mizoram Government Aided School Association (MIGASA), an umbrella body of private teachers working in government lump-sum grant-in-aid high schools and middle schools, has threatened to stage indefinite strike and observe �no teaching days� if the State Government fails to meet their demands of upgrading the schools to adhoc status within July.
MIGASA president, C Lalnghaizuala told a press conference on Monday that the Association had made repeated appeals to the State Government to upgrade the schools but to no avail. He also said that there are 61 lump-sum grant-in-aid high schools and middle schools across the State. He added that indefinite strike will affect over 3,000 students.
�The government gave financial assistance of Rs 1.5 lakh each for higher secondary schools and Rs 1.2 lakh each for high schools and middle schools annually, he added.
There are more than 300 teachers under the Association, according to Lalnghaizuala.
