Dehradun: 27 July, 2015
The School Education Department held a meeting with the Primary School Teachers Union today, which was presided over by Chief Minister Harish Rawat.
The meeting decided that the junior high schools and high schools will now be managed separately. All junior high schools which had been upgraded and had sufficient number of students would be run separately while the schools with insufficient number of students will be merged.
The Chief Minister said the state government was ready to consider every reasonable demand of the teachers but they, in turn, would have to understand and perform their duties. No compromise could be made on qualitative education.
He gave directions to Director, School Education, Senthil Pandiyan to increase the frequency of surprise inspections in schools. He also announced extra increment for teachers who had been felicitated with national or state awards.
In order to assess performance of teachers, a four-member committee must be constituted, including two department officers and two representatives from Primary Education Union, he added.
Others present on the occasion were Nirmala Mehr, president, Primary Education Union, department officers and representatives of the union.
