Colleges wait and watch as teachers' protest continues

BHUBANESWAR: The 2nd phase of evaluation of Plus II resolution sheets is ready to start on Monday and the agitating block grant teachers have threatened to boycott it as neatly.
The determination on Sunday comes after around 3,000 teachers from other non-government aided colleges stayed clear of the evaluation process within the first phase.

The teachers were on strike since March 19 in protest towards a central authority determination to insert a 'controversial' affidavit clause for availing grant-in assist.

The boycott has hit the evaluation process and the federal government on Wednesday directed government of non-government aided colleges to take action towards the truant teachers within seven days. However, the governing our bodies of the schools are yet to take any motion.

Balaram Sahu, a governing body member of a non-government aided school, said they did not take motion because the call for of the lecturers to withdraw the 'affidavit clause' is genuine.

The clause makes it obligatory for block grant teachers to signal an affidavit which states that they're going to by no means level a protest towards the federal government or manner the courts referring to their grievances if they are thought to be for complete grant-in assist.

"The government cannot prohibit anyone from going to the court of law or protest against it. This would be a violation of their democratic rights," Sahu said

For the second one phase of evaluation, the federal government has appointed around 2,000 teachers including 1,000 block grant teachers. School and mass schooling minister Badri Narayan Patra assured students and oldsters that the evaluation of resolution sheets is going on easily and the effects will be introduced on time.

"I request students and parents not to worry because the evaluation process is going on smoothly and we are trying our best to announce the results on time," said Patra.

Sources within the Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) said the primary phase saw around 70% teachers attending the evaluation process. "We are very hopeful that we will complete the evaluation by April 28 and the results will be declared on time," said deputy controller of exam, CHSE, Prabodh Panda.

Reacting to the verdict so as to add extra teachers to complete the evaluation process, Pabitra Mahala, convenor of Odisha School College Teachers and Employees United Forum, said, "The government has been making false claims and also misleading the people. On one hand, they are giving wrong information that block grant teachers have not been appointed for evaluation work, while on the other many of the block grant teachers have been asked to join the process."
