Early Times Report
Rajouri, Febr 17: Many government school teachers are engaged in other activities instead of performing their legitimate duties with dedication while others have managed their postings in the schools near to their habitations for not to raise the academic standard of the poor students but to draw their salaries easily without any work.
Such teachers are mostly serving in middle and primary schools in rural areas and have played a major role in lowering down the academic standard in the government schools.
These are among major reasons that the people (including teachers and govt employees) prefer private institutions (even at distances) instead government school situated near their habitations.
Another reason of poor academic standard of government schools is poor academic background of many teachers as they themselves can't read, write and explain to students properly.
"It was noticed/ established that to improve their subject results many teachers are providing help to the students in the examinations" said a Education Department official.
On Wednesday, Altaf Hussain , CEO along with a team of School Monitoring Cell (SMC) inspected three government schools including two middle and a primary under Rajouri and Darhal education zones.
During inspection, CEO found teachers absent from duty, surplus teachers and above all very poor academic standard of the students including that of 8th classes who even can't read/write basics of the subjects when asked by the team members.
Upset over the below average academic standard in these schools, Altaf Hussain vide his office order has stopped the salaries of all the teachers posted at these school till they improve the academic standard.
"Academic standard of the students in all the three schools was below average. The students of 5th and 8thclasses can't read or write the simple sentences when asked to do so. Concerned ZEOs and cluster heads have been directed to monitor the attendance /performance of the teachers in future and recommend strict disciplinary action in case of any lapse" said Altaf Hussain, CEO.
During inspection members of SMC including CEO found five teachers appointed for 12 students enrolled in middle school at Dhan Nadian (Darhal) while one teacher (in-charge) namely Shammim Ahmed was absent and two others were on training and child care leave.
CEO order to send Shammim Ahmed to high school at Proree on need base adjustments as at this school six posts are lying vacant due to court case.
Another teacher namely Mushtaq Ahmed, who was found absent from duty by SMC team at Bela (Rajouri town) primary school, was deployed at middle school at Kheora on need base arrangement by the CEO.
SMC team headed by CEO when visited middle school at Chatiyar (Darhal) only 8 students were present out of 31 enrolled. Six teachers including a master grade and 2 ReT teachers are looking after the affairs of this school.
"Despite sufficient staff, the reading and writing skills of primary classes found very poor & many students can't read or write" said CEO.
CEO also found insufficient infrastructure for middle school at Badanoo (Darhal) and ordered to conduct 6th to 8th classes in the complex of middle school at Dhan Nadian which is just 300 meters from this school.
