ZP meet: Appointment of teachers stressed

Discussions on the vacancy of teachers’ posts topped the agenda at the ZP meeting held at the KDP auditorium here on Monday.

It highlighted that there were 369 vacant posts at government primary and high schools in the district. The members, in unison, stressed on appointment of teachers based on the strength of students.

Member G S Nithya pointed out that some of the schools do not have compound. Other members too seconded her and explained that SSLC students were the worst as they do not have teachers for particular subjects.

Member Kaveri urged to increase the height of the compound at Haradanahalli government school and prevent miscreants from painting graffiti on the wall.

Deputy director for public instruction Bellashetty said there were 265 vacancies for assistant teachers among 369 vacant teachers posts. In some places there are only three teachers for 25 children. The government has directed to recruit additional teachers before July 25, he said.

He sought the cooperation of elected representatives to fill the vacant posts by not pressurising them, favouring transfers.


Member D C Nagendra alleged that officials did not invite him for the Shaalegagi Naavu Neevu programme, though it was held in his constituency.

He blamed ZP president Rajeshwari of not following protocol. Rajeshwari clarified that she tried to inform him but was told that he had been on a pilgrimage to Tirupati.

ZP CEO M R Somashekarappa said the government programmes should be held in the presence of elected representatives and directed the officials to follow the protocol.

The ZP meeting decided to take stern action against a teacher who had allegedly misbehaved with a student and recommended to transfer him.
