The Gujarat Federation of Academic Associations has written to the State Chief Minister’s and Education Minister’s Office and complained regarding a number of teachers who are violating regulations by running private tuition classes. The association has sent a list of 104 teachers who are allegedly conducting private coaching classes.
It is a comprehensive list that clearly states the names and addresses of the teachers. The list includes 65 teachers from Mehsana, 21 from Gandhinagar, 11 from Radhanpur, five from Idar and two from Junagadh.
The letter states that the trustees of the schools are aware that the teachers are conducting tuition classes. However, the trustees are not taking any action against the teachers allegedly because they are getting a commission.
Furthermore, the association has accused the teachers of forcing the students from their school to join their coaching classes. The letter says that the teachers are promising these students high grades in internal exams.
The letter focuses on the state government rules, which clearly state that the teachers employed by schools cannot conduct private coaching classes. The federation has said that it has repeatedly made presentations regarding this matter in the last two years, but no action has been taken yet. The letter says that if the government does not take strict action against these teachers, it will begin a peaceful agitation.
