The SSC spot valuation seems to be facing a serious problem with several teachers expressing their unwillingness to take up the job citing lack of proper facilities. A day after the directorate of government examinations announced the schedule for spot valuation; as many as 150 teachers sent their leave letters to the DEOs concerned seeking exemption from the duties. The spot valuation is scheduled to start on April 13. Over 12 lakh students took the SSC examinations, which concluded on Tuesday 10th April.
A total of 21,139 assistant examiners (primary evaluators), 3,525 chief examiners and 7,050 special scrutinisers are required to evaluate and scrutinise the answer scripts. "Even if 5% teachers are absent, it is going to affect the evaluation," officials said. Private school officials said every year about 20% of teachers give a miss to spot valuation citing various reasons. "There were several errors in evaluation of answer scripts last time. We had brought them to the notice of the officials of the department of school education. Since the future of several students is at stake, the department should not allow teachers to stay away from evaluation duties," said M. A. Kareemuddin, principal of a city-based school.Officials of directorate of school education had issued a statement on Monday 9th April, 2012 allowing teachers with critical medical condition to opt out of evaluation duties. However, officials clearly stated that if they found the reasons for taking leave were not genuine, they would reject them. Interestingly, it is not just teachers from private schools who sought exemption from evaluation duties. "Some teachers are averse to attending to duties due to lack of proper facilities at spot valuation centres. More than a dozen centres lacked basic facilities like fans, drinking water last year," said N Narayana, president, United Teachers' Front, which represents government school teachers in the state. However, officials of directorate of government examinations deny the allegations and said that each spot valuation centres will have facilities like canteen, water and fans this year. The directorate clarified that it had a reserve list of teachers who were eligible for evaluation duties to replace those who failed to turn up. "We have made it clear that only those with serious medical problems will be allowed to stay away from the spot valuation. No one will be exempted from evaluation without proper medical proof," said Manmada Reddy, director of government examinations. He added that stringent departmental action would be taken against teachers taking leave without a valid reason.
