Hyderabad: Constant monitoring and pressure to get good results has made teachers of the Government High School, Raj Bhavan, seek transfer to another school.
Of the 19 teachers available in the School, about 10 teachers have applied for transfer, which was initiated by the State government recently. Among them, six teachers were under the compulsory transfer and four others have put a request before the Directorate of School Education.
According to rules framed by the State government, a minimum two years of service is required for teachers to be eligible for the transfer. For teachers who have completed eight years of service in a particular school as on May 31, 2018, transfer is made mandatory. However, teachers who will retire within two years from May 31, 2018, will not be shifted until the incumbent requests.
In January this year, Hyderabad District Collector Yogita Rana, who reviewed performance of students, had warned teachers of action in front of parents and students if they failed to get good results. The warning from the Collector did not go well with teachers and in fact, they protested.
“The school has become a focus point for everyone. Suddenly some officer will come for inspections. There is pressure on the teachers to get good results,” a teacher said.
Another teacher said, “With the kind of pressure and monitoring in the school, it remains to be seen whether new teachers will opt for this school during transfers web counselling. Already six teachers are under compulsory transfer and four have put a request. Nobody has to fear if one does the job with perfection. For me, it is privilege to work in the best government school in the State.”
