The sources say that, three teachers have refused to go on supervision duties or check answer sheets unless the state listens to their demands.
In order to make strong these refusals, the Maharashtra State Unaided Schools Action Group, representing 200 schools and over 500 teachers from Mumbai, have been protesting a decision by the Government to not provide education aid to thousands of unaided schools in the state.
In such case, if these teachers boycott paper correction, then SSC results could be delayed. Moreover, the evaluation process of HSC papers has already been affected due to a similar strike by college teachers. And those schools affected by the Government's decision on aid have decided to remain closed on Tuesday and Wednesday in order to support the protest.
Arundhati Chavan, president of the PTA United Forum said "Teachers are disrupting board exams to force the government to agree to their demands. Students are being held ransom here. The state government needs to take some action, otherwise SSC and HSC results will be delayed this year."
The students are now put into stress. They feel that once the board exam results are late, then online admissions also start late. Later as a result of this delay, the academic year will begin late and we will get less time to study for the next examination.
Well, the decision is yet to be announce that Maharashtra Government. Moreover, students who plan to apply for abroad universities may also be affected.
