11,000 teachers will be appointed soon: Kimmane

Primary and Secondary Education Minister KImmane Rathnakar has said that attempts are being made to bring some changes in transfer policy of teachers and the problems of teachers recruited under Sarva Shikshan Abhiyan will be solved soon. He was speaking with media persons at the sidelines of an interaction programme with students at Tarikere, on Thursday.

 In the whole country, the State is ahead in implementing Uniform Education System and implementaion is being done step-by-step. Around 11,000 teachers’ posts which are vacant will be filled soon. About 10,000 teachers were appointed on contract basis, as lack of teachers should not affect the education system. The fault of the department officials who have appointed D. Ed degree holders in spite of B. Ed holders has caused Rs 100 crore burdens for the government, as the government has to train them up, he said.  The government spends most of its income for the salary of the employees.

 Especially, in Education department, funds are being utilised for teachers’ salary, Anna Bhagya, Ksheera Bhagya and distribution of bicycles. It is becoming difficult to provide basic facilities and there is a need for some alternative method to gather funds, he said. 

The Minister said that from next academic year, English will be taught as a language from Standard first itself. In the State, there are more than 50,000 school buildings and there is a need of Rs 6 crore for the renovation. The confusion over teaching mother tongue in primary education still prevails and the government will think of next step only after the court decision, he said. Meanwhile, he assured of distributing quality bicycles in this academic year, unlike last year. 

MLA G H Srinivas, ZP Members K P Kumar, Block Congress President Abdul Ghani and TP President Shakunthala among others were present.
