The State government has decided to appoint 12,000 guest teachers within a month.
There are 24,000 vacant posts in 51,000 schools in the State. The services of 4,000 teachers will be regularised. The services of teachers who retire in mid of the academic year will be continued till the end of the year.
The Minister said that measures will be taken to ensure that textbooks are supplied on time. The order for the textbooks will be sought in the month of September itself.
The SDMC will select the colour of school uniforms.
He also visited Subramanya Government Higher Primary School and had discussion with the teachers. “Education is a continous learning system. Teachers should mould the personality of the students,” he said. He also visited each classroom and asked students on the teaching system in the school.
