Bopaiah demands timely promotion of teachers

District Best Teachers’ Awards were presented during the Teachers’ Day celebrations in Madikeri on Thursday.

MLA K G Bopaiah on Thursday favoured timely promotions to teachers based on their experience and working capabilities.

While addressing the gathering at the Teachers’ Day celebration held at St Joseph School Auditorium in Madikeri on Thursday, he observed that teachers were always held in high esteem in the society. They have a significant role to play in forming an ideal society.

“Those who have joined as teachers are retiring as teachers. This system should change,” the MLA added.

Paediatrician Dr B C Navin Kumar said that around 2 crore children in the country suffer from malnutrition. Along with education, there is a need to provide nutritious food, he stressed.

Kodagu Zilla Panchayat Chief Executive Officer K Lakshmi Priya stated that children spend more time in school than at home. The students should revere their teachers and the teachers should love their students as their own children.

She also recalled the contributions by teachers during floods in Kodagu.

Many teachers took part in rescue operations, she added.
