Chapter of dissent


Chapter of dissent

Sanjeev Singh Bariana

After having faced teachers’ agitations since October 2018, the Education Department cannot deny the fact that interests of lakhs of students enrolled with around 19,500 government schools had suffered massively during the past nearly six months. Having recruited teachers under various schemes, the department did not have a common code of service rules to address the issue of their regularisation. It gave a pay scale of only Rs 15,300 to 8,886 Sarv Shiksha Abhiyaan – Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyaan teachers who were earlier drawing Rs 42,000 or more per month under a Central scheme. At the same time, 5,178 teachers hired in 2014 on the promise of regularising them after three years also took to protest. 

However, everything looks settled now. But history shows that once the code of conduct ends, there is every possibility of employees recruited under various schemes like vocational or computer teachers hitting the roads too.

Despite all opposition, the Padho Punjab, Padhao Punjab programme has come in as a whiff of fresh air in the education system. The changed face of more than 2,000 schools is a live example. Vacancies in universities and government colleges continue to be more than 70 per cent at many places. Scholarships are not coming regularly for students in colleges.
