Ludhiana, January 6

A head teacher of Government Elementary School, Sri Chand Colony, Mundian Kalan, faced suspension, while another was transferred for allegedly making students lift garbage.

The teachers faced the wrath of the Education Department after a video of two students pulling garbage buckets went viral and reached the higher authorities.

When the matter reached District Education Officer, Elementary, Jaspreet Kaur, she immediately suspended the head teacher Charanjit Kaur and also ordered the transfer of another teacher Savita for adopting ‘negligent attitude’ on duty. As per the information, the particular school has no sweeper and schoolteachers along with students clean the school premises under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Students’ kin support teacher

Dozens of parents of students gathered at the school, when Deputy DEO, Elementary, Kuldeep Saini went to inquire the matter today. The moment Saini reached, parents cornered him and demanded reinstatement of the suspended teacher. “Parents want reinstatement of the teacher as they claimed that the teachers were good and the school had a congenial environment. They alleged that the person who shot the video lured the students first by giving them something to eat and then took them to the school and misbehaved with the teacher. I am probing the matter from all angles and will send the report to the DEO for further action,” he said.

No vacancy of sweepers in primary schools, says DTF

Ramanjit Sandhu and Rupinder Pal Singh Gill of the Democratic Teachers’ Front said there was no vacancy of sweepers in primary schools in the state, due to which teachers face pressure to keep schools clean. Elementary teacher union (Sekhon), president Sukhdhir Singh Sekhon said Congress MLA Bharat Bhushan Ashu was apprised about their demands.

Child rights panel summons DEO, teachers

Sukesh Kalia, chairman of the Punjab Child Rights Commission, while taking the suo moto notice of the viral video, which shows Class V students lifting garbage, has summoned DEO, Elementary, Jaspreet Kaur and teacher Charanjit Kaur and Savita.

Most schools without sweepers

Sources said the district has 1,003 elementary schools and most of these were without sweepers. Government teachers requesting anonymity said due to the pressure of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, apart from doing cleanliness work at schools at their own level, teachers of some of the schools had also employed private sweepers and were paying from their own pockets to ensure cleanliness. Sources said there was no vacancy of sweepers in primary schools, due to which teachers often force students to indulge in cleanliness drives.

Teachers’ union threatens stir

The Government School Teachers’ Union, Punjab, threatened to launch stir if the suspended teacher was not reinstated, saying they may boycott the Modi-led Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. Parveen Kumar, general secretary of the union, said the union members would meet the Education Minister and even the CM to demand reinstatement of the teacher. “Schoolteachers have a lot of pressure to keep schools clean under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, due to which teachers and students are conducting cleanliness at their own level,” he said.

All District Education Officers in the state, school Principals and District Education and Training Centres have been asked to keep their premises tobacco-free by not allowing any vender to sell such products within 100-metre radius from the outer boundary of the school.

Officials were strictly told to implement the directions in letter and spirit. As per the letter issued by the Deputy State Project Director Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan, Punjab, (copy with The Tribune) it was brought to their notice by the State-Level Coordination Committee, State-Level Task Force and State-Level Monitoring Committee that tobacco products were still being sold around school premises in the state. “DEOs, schools principals and school heads must ensure that tobacco products should not be sold within the radius of 100 metre from the outer boundary of the school. Also take help of the police administration or municipal corporations or councils. Do put signage on the outer walls of the school indicating ‘no smoking area’ or smoking is an offence,” the letter said.

What the Act says

According to the Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act (COTPA): “Tobacco products cannot be sold to a person below the age of 18 years, and in places within a 100-metre radius from the outer boundary of an institution of education, which includes schools, colleges and institutions of higher learning established or recognised by an appropriate authority.”

Jalandhar, January 6

The government is meting out a step-motherly treatment to aided school employees, holding back their salaries and arrears.

The Education and the Finance departments are creating hurdles in the payment of arrears to them.

Aided School Employees Association (regd) spokesperson Manish Aggarwal in a prèss note issued here today said the Finance Department had stalled the payment of arrears to them from May 2017 and the revised grade pay arrears bills were also pending with the treasury.

He said the Education Department had sanctioned the grant for the arrears but the Finance Department was not passing it.

Manish said DA instalments were paid to employees, along with salaries, but teachers of aided schools had to wait for three to four years for the release of grant.

The grants were already being released in a delayed manner, the limits were crossed when instead of passing the grant, the Treasury Department stalled it, he added.

He said there was fear among the employees that if the grants were not passed before March 31, then it shall lapse.

Members of the union appealed to the Finance Minister and officials of the department to release instructions to the District Treasury Office in this regard so that the teachers and employees get their dues.
