Bangalore, December 5, DHNS:

Palike high schools have 496 vacancies of which 301 to be filled

The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Standing Committee on Education has proposed to avail the services of academicians from either Indian Institute of Management or Indian Institute of Science to upgrade the quality of teachers.

They will serve as advisors to a screening panel for selecting teachers to Palike schools and PU colleges.

Speaking with reporters, Chairman of the Committee B V Ganesh said the prime focus of the Standing Committee was to ensure quality teachers at the BBMP schools and PU colleges in order to provide quality education in the future.

He said that there were many vacancies in Palike schools, but efforts were on in the BBMP to ensure that they were filled with permanent teachers instead of outsourcing them to individuals.

According to the BBMP education department, there are 496 posts for teachers vacant across the City including for all subjects being taught at the schools. Of these, the BBMP is trying to fill at least 301 posts for which a screening panel will interview the candidates.

Outsourcing


Of the 914 posts approved by the State government for the BBMP schools and junior colleges, the Palike has filled only 50 percent of the posts with permanent employees.

The rest are being managed with outsourced teachers who hold a Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree. The highest number of  vacancies are for the posts of teaching assistants at the high school level with 292 vacant positions.

Five posts of headmasters in primary schools are also vacant. While the teachers appointed as permanent employees are being given their salaries as per the scale approved by Education Department those outsourced are being paid a minimal amount for their work.

The outsourced teachers are being paid Rs 7,224 per month at the high school and the junior colleges as compared to Rs 15,000 to Rs 16,000 per month for permanent employees.

As a result fewer teaching graduates are taking up the jobs offered by the BBMP.
Overall, the BBMP has 136 institutions that cater to children from kindergarten to PU College level.
