“It is the responsibility of the authorities to make more students join schools instead of closing,” he added at a programme to felicitate teachers with special achievement and students who topped the SSLC examinations, organised at the Chennayya Rangamandira on Monday, by Zilla Panchayat and the Department of Public Instructions.

He said teachers should not be burdened with implementation of multiple projects and even admission process. “This will deny them time to concentrate on educational activities. They should get opportunity and time to conduct lessons and related activities.”

District In-charge Minister Varthur Prakash said teachers should try to raise the district to the top in SSLC results. “They should visit the houses of students weak in studies and speak to parents.”

Education officer A N Nagendra Prasad, who gave the inaugural address, said the jump of the district to the eighth position, with 84.46 per cent, was due to efforts of teachers, officers and parents.

“As many as 43 schools have got 100 per cent result this year. Head teachers of the schools, 485 special teachers of various subjects where the result was 100 per cent and 13 students who were achievers of various kinds in the SSLC exams are felicitated this time,” he said.
