BEd college lecturers boycott valuation

BEd college lecturers boycott valuation

Lecturers of BEd colleges affiliated to Bangalore University boycotted the valuation work that was set to begin on Wednesday.

The university conducted BEd exams between May 12 and 18 and the valuation was to be held from Wednesday.

The boycott on Wednesday came in the wake of the university allowing 11 BEd colleges to conduct exams in spite of the university local inquiry committee (LIC) reports pending for discussion.

The affiliation of these colleges are at stake as the LIC reports indicate that they have not conducted sufficient number of classes and do not have proper infrastructure.

However, evaluators have decided to go ahead with the valuation on Thursday by omitting answer scripts from the blacklisted colleges.

Vice-Chancellor Prabhu Dev had recently assured that the reports would be looked into in the next academic council meeting.

However, the issue is still pending and the blacklisted colleges went ahead and conducted the exams.

In this light, the lecturers boycotted valuation saying they did not want to valuate answer scripts from these colleges whose credentials are under the scanner in the university committee reports. 

Lecturers submitted a representation to the V-C regarding the same. An estimated 9,000 students have written the BEd exam this time.

Meanwhile, the V-C has assured that the matter would be looked into by the university task force appointed for the purpose, said professor Shambulinge Gowda, principal of BES College, who also took part in the protest.

The colleges whose affiliation is at stake: Rajiv Gandhi College of Education, Huliappa Mallamma BEd College, Jnanvikas College of Education, St Jospeh’s College of Education and Mother Theresa BEd College.
