Transfer policy
A new transfer policy will be introduced in the next session of the Assembly to find solution to the issues pertaining the transfer of teachers. The government will make transfer process transparent through the new policy, the Minister said.

“The government is doing its best to solve all issues including disparity in teachers’ salary and allowances. The government will not give opportunity to deny justice to teachers at any cost,” he assured. The State-level Teachers Day to be held on September 5 at Mysore will be a platform to find solution to the problems of teachers in the State, he added.

“No new issues had cropped up after I took the charge as a minister. At the same time, frequent deliberations were made to find solution to all existing issues,” the Minister  said.

Teachers’ conventions should not become a platform reserved only to place demands before the government. At the same time, teachers also should give valuable suggestions to bring qualitative changes in the education system, he suggested adding that challenges before the system should be addressed through teachers’ conventions. 
The Government is responding to the problems of teachers positively. The government is reserving about 15 per cent of the budget allocation to reform the education sector. Still the percentage of enrolment in higher education in the State is 12, he said adding that the government has aims to increase the higher education enrolment to 20 - 25 per cent.
