Punjab DGSC Raided Schools-31Teachers Found Absent

DGSC Held A Pre-Planned Raid On schools
The Punjab Director General Of School Education (DGSC) recently held a ride on 140 schools, where he found that around 31 teachers were found to be absent for duty and 88 teachers were reported late.


After checking these 140 Government Schools of the district through 16 different teams, the DGSC, Kahan Singh Pannu, has suspended a district co-ordinator of Education through Satellite (Eduset), a headmaster and a clerk with immediate effect.

He said that the raids were planned and the exercise had helped the department identify the weakness of the system. And most of the teachers were under the impression that teams from Chandigarh visit only on Saturday's.

"Many labs established at different schools, with 24 computers in each lab have been defunct for months. District Eduset officer Narinder Puri could not give a satisfactory reply for the mistake. He has been suspended with immediate effects", he added.

Including at the Government High school, Nagal Salala, a clerk Gagandeep singh was found absent from his duty. During an deep inquiry made, it came to light that he used to work with the regional transport office too, hence he was suspended. And in the High School at Puadhara the headmaster Dalbir Singh who misbehaved with the inspection team and interfered while carrying out their duties was suspended too.

The DGSC also interacted with students at different schools and queried about their progress, knowledge and school environment. On the 18 teachers who have been refusing for a long time, departmental proceedings would be started to terminate their services.

DGSC was also happy with a few schools. He said "Some schools heads have done a commendable work. At Government High school Maanku, Government Senior Secondary school Barha Pind and Government High School Gadhran, the inspection teams were impressed at the standards maintained at these schools. Hence We have directed the officials to issue warning letters to all 88 teachers who have resorted late. Show-cause notices would be issued to 31 teachers who were found to be absent from their duties".
