Punishment for erring evaluators

 The disciplinary action varies from issuing warnings, cut in increments to suspension.
Primary and Secondary Education minister Vishweshwara Hegde Kageri said that notices had already been served to the erring teachers.

“The government would take action against all those who committed errors and even the evaluation supervisors, who failed to notice the errors committed by their subordinates,” the minister said.


Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB) director D S Rajanna said that the board had ordered the suspension of six teachers. Of the six, four were from aided colleges, two each in Tumkur and Chikmagalur. The private school managements had been asked to suspend them.

Warnings and cut in increments apart,  serious mistakes, if any, committed by an evaluator would result in his or her suspension, he said.

“It all depends on the gravity of the mistake committed by the evaluator. In case of minor mistakes, the evaluator would be let off with a warning,” the KSEEB director said.
