Educationists from all over the state condemned the state government for exploiting teachers by appointing them as Vidyasahayaks and giving them pittance of Rs 4, 500 as salary.
Over 70 educationists and senior policy makers from all over the state participated in a workshop held on the eve of Teacher's Day on Sunday to discuss necessary action to restore the respect deserved by teachers and also to ensure education for each and every child. We demand that the state government stop violating the right to get equal remuneration by teachers. Appointing Vidyasahayaks is disrespecting the teaching fraternity as the salaries they are offered are menial, said Sukhdev Patel, educationist and activist working for fair implementation of the Right to Education (RTE) ACT. A teacher has certain responsibility towards his family and his profession. How can you expect a person to be dedicated to his profession on a salary of Rs 4, 500 when another person who has been appointed as a teacher gets an entry level salary of Rs 20, 000 per month, he questioned. Patel said that when the state government expects Vidyasahayaks to be a graduate and clear the teacher's eligibility test, why doesn’t it believe in paying them good salaries so that they are fully dedicated to their chosen profession. Appointment of Vidyasahayaks also curtails the respect deserved by teachers. We firmly believe that good, qualified teachers should be appointed to raise the standard of teaching in schools across the state, said Patel. The state government has recently appointed over 11, 000 Vidyasahayaks in the state. The recruitment drive was to fill 13,000 positions.
