Bengaluru, Sept.5: In the coming days, the government will recruit the total number of teachers who will retire in that year, recruiting an equal number of new teachers, impart training and post them in the places of retiring teachers, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.
Speaking after inaugurating teacher’s day celebrations on the occasion of birth anniversary of former President of India Prof S.Radhakrishnan at Banquet Hall in Vidhana Soudha here on Monday, he said the state budget has allocated Rs 25,000 crore for the education field of which Rs 19,000 crore goes towards the salary of teachers and Rs 5000 crore on the development of schools. For the first time in the history of Karnataka, the incumbent government has constructed 8101 classrooms in one year. Still, they need to build 23,000 classrooms of which 8101 classrooms are being constructed in the first phase in one year. This recorded program has been launched as they had good schools but not the quality classrooms.
Toilets in Govt schools
The CM said observing that students have stopped coming to schools for lack of toilets, the government has chalked out a plan of providing separate toilets for the girls and the boys in all government schools within one year. This program was announced on August 15 and that work will be completed within one year. Apart from this, 4000 new Anganwadi Centres will be established before August 15. The burden of teaching has been reduced thanks to recruitment of new 15,000 teachers. Both the State and the Union governments have formulated a number of rules to maintain the quality of education and for well-maintained schools, and these rule have to be followed by school boards and teachers compulsorily. In order to check the exploitation of teachers, instructions are given to simplify rules and incorporate discipline. It has been observed that No Objection Certificates are given for the opening of new schools without any inspection and this has impacted the child’s education and quality. Stern action will be taken against those who flout rules as well as against those who encourage such shortcuts. Additional funds are given to taluks to improve the field of education in those places. The government is focusing on creating a conducive atmosphere for teachers to discharge their duties, and that decision will be based on the ground reality and humanity. But there will be no compromise when it comes to the development of the education field that will build the character of kids, he added.
