Vidharbh Shikshak Sangh demands restraint on assigning non-educational work to teachers
The activists of Vidharbh Shikshak Sangh (VSS) staged an agitation near the Nagpur Collector’s Office to press their various demands. The activists of Vidharbh Shikshak Sangh were demanding that the Education Boards and Government Education Departments should refrain from assigning non-education duties to school teachers. Activists claimed that as per the current RTI Act 2010, Clause 27, all non-educational duties such as Census, Rajiya Sabha and Lok Sabha Election should not be given to teachers.
The teachers’ fraternity came together in order to show their allegiance to the organization and staged a huge demonstration against the policies of Education Department. The teachers were led by the General Secretary Puroshattam Panchbhai of Vidharbh Shikshak Sangh to stage their protests.
While addressing the gathering of teachers, General Secretary Puroshattam Panchbhai of Vidharbh Shikshak Sangh said that they will continue their protests until the concept of assigning non-educational duties to teachers is scraped. He added that it has been abolished on District-level too but did not implement it as yet. This has prompted them to raise the issue and demand an early redressal of their grievances. He claimed that they cannot spare time for students while performing non-educational overload duties assigned by the school.
