ACTION, INCLUDING lodging of FIR, is being contemplated by the Education Department against  those higher secondary teachers who have not attended their duty in the ongoing High School and Intermediate examinations of UP Board. As per the official information, nearly 50 per cent teachers in the district did not turn up for the examination duty despite several strict directives issued by the UP Board and other departments concerned. These teachers were appointed as invigilators for the exams.

According to District Inspector of Schools Mahendra Kumar Singh Yadav, a list of absentee teachers was being readied by his office so that legal action may be taken against them. Soon FIRs would be lodged and later they will be debarred from future examination work. These teachers will not even be made evaluators to check the answersheets of the examination for next the three years.

Interestingly, in case of absence of these teachers, the centre superintendents have no option but to take help of their own teachers. Significantly, the Board has issued directives to self centres that they will appoint 90 per cent teachers from outside.. As a result, the teachers were exchanged from one college to another on the basis of the list approved by the DIOS office. Unfortunately, 50 per cent of them have not turned up so far for their duty while exams of important subjects, including Hindi and  English are already over. These teachers have not even apprised the the DIOS office or their respective colleges of the reason for being absent from duty. The situation in rural area is reported to be the worst. 

It may be recalled that the Board has already action against several examiners who did not comply with the order issued by the Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad in evaluation of answersheets for High School and Intermediate examinations 2005.

They have been barred from  examination work for 2006. Around 180 teachers who had been appointed examiners did not follow the Board’s instructions for checking answersheets for 2005 exams.
