'No work, no salary' for excess teachers: Horatti

Legislative Council pro-tem chairman Basavaraj Horatti inaugurates academic workshop for social science teachers, in Hubballi on Monday. Raja Desai, and others look on.

Legislative Council pro-tem chairman Basavaraj Horatti revealed that finance and education departments are thinking about implementing a 'no work, no salary' policy for excess teachers in schools with fewer students.

"There is also a plan to transfer excess teachers to other districts. 28,000 government schools lack the sufficient number of students, and this is resulting in fewer students attending high schools also. To discuss all these issues, and to find solutions, I have called a meeting of the education minister, officials and teachers' representatives on September 1," he said.

Speaking after inaugurating an academic workshop for social science teachers on Monday, Horatti stated that there is a general opinion that having less number of students in government and aided schools depends on the quality of teaching by teachers. Though there is a craze for English medium education, there are examples of a heavy rush for admission to government Kannada medium schools at some places, he said.

Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy wanted me to become primary, secondary and higher education minister, but political scenario changed later. However, I would respond to teachers' problems. They should teach well, and should ensure that more students attend school, he said, also charging that some managements recruit teachers taking money resulting in excess teachers.

He also asked teachers to try to send their children to their own school.

NLE Society honorary secretary Raja Desai, DDPI R S Mullur, and others were present.
