The All Nyishi Students’ Union (ANSU) has called for the closing down of zero-enrolment government schools in Nyishi-inhabited areas saying that government resources are being wasted on zero-enrolment schools. The ANSU claimed that a survey conducted by the organisation found 14 schools with zero-enrolment within the capital region itself. The ANSU also called for teacher’s grant-in-aid and welfare annual fund in government schools to carry out co-curricular activities effectively and also appraised the government to recruit trained graduate teachers and post graduate teachers against the sanctioned vacant posts due to the shortage of teachers in the state.
