RESENTMENT IS brewing among teachers and non-teaching staff against the government decision to abolish the privilege marks given to their wards for admission to B Ed course, from the next academic session.
Till the last academic session, 15 marks were given to the wards of the teaching and non-teaching staff to form their merit for admission to B Ed course. However, the government has not withdrawn this facility for the wards of those who fall under the category of freedom fighters, defense employees, retired government officials, police personnel, home guards, PAC, CRPF and the BSF.
Their wards will continue to get the privileged marks at the time of admission.Criticising the government decision, president of the UP Vishwavidyalaya , Mahavidyalaya Shikshak Mahasangh Dr Ghanshyam Gupta said it was ridiculous that the government disallowed the privileged marks to the wards of the teaching and the non-teaching staff who were lawfully entitled to avail of this facility. Every government department has special rules for the dependants of its employees, and they did not provide any relaxation to others. But in this case, the government infringed upon the rights of teachers, they added.He said the Mahasangh decided to take up the matter with the secretary of the Education Department for reviewing the decision. He also said the MLC from Teachers’ constituency Raj Bahadur Chandel said that he would raise the issue in the House to press for revision of the order.Leaders of all the factions of the Shikshak Sangh said that the government had no right to do away with the facility.
