Government wants teachers to concentrate on upcoming Board exams
The deputy chief minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, on January 18 directed district officials to not rope in State government school teachers for administrative duties owing to the reopening of classes X and XII in the State.
The government school teachers have rendered their services for Covid-19-related duties in the State from March 2020 for the enforcement of various guidelines, airport screening and door-to-door surveys. Around 20,000 to 25,000 teachers are currently working with district authorities for Covid-related duties. Sisodia has asked the government officials to consider the upcoming Board exams for which the teachers have been assigned special classes. He believes that this discretion is necessary so that the teachers can teach uninterrupted classes for students who are appearing for the exams this year.
Teachers have also been connecting with the students of kindergarten to class XII via online classes and engaging with the parents regularly.
Sisodia has further stated that teachers, vice principals and principals of the Directorate of Education (DoE) cannot be summoned to render services in any administrative or field work. However, if there are emergency situations, the minister has directed the officials to take prior permission from him without which no teacher will be sent for deployment.
