Teachers of government schools in Haryana have been directed to fill and complete 'Shiksha Setu cards' and 'Teachers Diary' on a regular basis.

Those who fail to do so would not be paid salaries until they abided by the instructions. This was state by TC Gupta, principal secretary, school education, while addressing a two-day workshop on the Kurukshetra University campus on Saturday evening.

The workshop has been organised to deliberate on steps to be taken to further improve the quality of education from the next academic session and to prepare a framework for new curriculum.

More than 250 district education officers, district elementary education officers and block education officers are participating in the workshop.

He said the advisory council on education would be constituted this month. About one lakh teachers are working in government schools in the state and the ratio of teacher to student is 1:36.

Gupta said he had visited a number of government schools during the last two months. While he felt happy over the efforts made by the state awardee teachers for their outstanding contribution in improving the quality of education, he was disappointed by the declining level of education in some schools due to the negligence of teachers, he said. "Any negligence would not be tolerated and stern action would be taken against those found shirking their duties," he added.

The director general, elementary education department, Subhash Chander Goyal said all must work together to ensure that every child gets education.
