For the first time in its history, the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) has taken action against 11 schools that failed to send their teachers for answer sheet evaluation. In addition, the board has decided to conduct hearing for Shantvan High School afresh. On Wednesday, 9th May, board secretary M. I. Joshi said that during the assessment of the board examination papers, the number of evaluators was much less than required and hence they decided to carry out a survey of the facilities of the schools.
The intention was to find out whether the schools did not have adequate staff or they did but chose not send their teachers for the evaluation duty. A random survey of 12 such schools was taken up and a team of class II and Class III employees of the Rajkot district education office (DEO) were sent to there for checking. The team in its report pointed out that these schools did not have the required infrastructure or staff. A department official said that the team found that the schools had started additional classes without the prior approval of the board. Also it was revealed that these schools were not paying the salaries to their staff members through cheques. In addition, the schools did not maintain the register of the students or record of their attendance. The official added the team found that these schools did not have required number of teachers as per the norms. All these 12 schools were given show cause notices asking them why action should not be taken against them. Based on the reply given by these schools, the board has taken action against 11 schools. In the case of Shantvan School, the board has decided to conduct fresh hearing. After getting the findings, the board has decided to carry out checks at several such self financed institutes to check the facilities provided by them.
