The declining quality of teachers in the country is a major concern. Zero accountability on part of the teachers is seen as one of the possible reasons behind this. But it seems like the things are taking a turn for the better. In Gujarat, no less than 500 instructors have submitted a large group of such mix-ups while assessing the answer sheets of standard X and XII students. Also, now they will embrace the cold hard truth about the current situation for being chronically thoughtless.
In the wake of filtering through 80,000 mistake filled answersheets, the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) has distinguished 2,500 educators who are blameworthy of submitting figuring blunders. Of these, 500 are "rehash guilty parties" and have been given show-reason sees and summoned for hearing. The board asks the slip inclined instructors in the notification to clarify why the pay augmentations allowed to them ought not be withdrawn.
The board's executive, A J Shah said: "These are glaring slips which can't be overlooked. We will call all the blameworthy instructors to hear their clarifications and will then make suitable move." Earlier, the board fined educators Rs 100. "However, now the activity will be sterner and excellent on the grounds that we need to put an end to this remissness," Shah said.
The board unearthed these estimation slips when the imprints for standard X and XII end of the year tests were being transferred on the site. Amid the last crosschecking the mistakes were highlighted. "The remedial activity took us over 20 days," Shah said.
As per board authorities, each answersheet is assessed by a group of five instructors, headed by a mediator who is a senior educator with 25 years of experience. "Every educator checks five inquiries and afterward one instructor adds up to the marks," said a top GSHSEB official. "The addition of marks is then checked by the mediator. In spite of all these counter-checks such glaring lapses got past."
