Let teachers do their jobs, say school panel presidents

Appoint a clerk at every government school. Let teachers do their work. Don’t ask reports repeatedly. Give classroom and class teacher to each class, demanded many teachers, parents and School Development and Monitoring Committee (SDMC) presidents.

Their demands were in the context of development of primary and secondary education.

During a programme organised for the distribution of certificates of State-level essay competition, felicitation of achievers and an interaction session about the challenges before education by Karnataka Jnana Vijnana Samiti (KJVS) and other organisations at DIET in the  City recently, Keddalike Government Higher Primary School Head Master Ramesh Naik said support of SDMC could make the work of a teacher a lot easier.

The government should not recruit teachers on the basis of number of students, but they should help for the overall development of students.

Senior lecturer Ashok Kamath stressed more about the mentality of people, who can be on their knees for the government job, but don’t want to admit their children to the government schools.

A large part of population is attracted towards English-medium schools or under pressure to admit their kids to such schools because of social reasons. “If we don’t support Kannada-medium schools, it would be a cheating for coming generation,” he said.

Karnataka Jnana Vijnana Samiti State Secretary E Basavaraj demanded the government to appoint a second grade assistant and ‘D’ group workers to every higher primary schools. It would help teachers to involve more in teaching. The confidence among public about the government schools should grow, he said.

Padi Director Rennie D’Souza said stand of the Central government that children below 14 years can also work would cheat children’s of their opportunity to study. Like-minded people should fight against the decision, he said.

Certificates were distributed to the winners of State-level essay competitions. National awardee teacher Ramesh Naik and Suribail SDMC President S M Aboobakkar were felicitated.
