Dear Friend,
KendriyaVidyalaya Sangathan has once again come out with an anti-teacher approach through the proposed implementation of a new policy adopted through the new office memorandum dated 12.02.2012. The 38th Academic Advisory Committee meeting recommended an increase in the existing working hours of teachers by an hour and twenty minutes. As a result of it, teacher’s working hours will become 7 hours 30 minutes a day. The rationale on which the decision was taken to effect this increase, seems illogical and unreasonable. The profession of teaching can, in no way, be compared with any other profession. Most surprisingly and annoyingly, KVS is equating all teachers with other workforce without exactly assessing the workload on a teacher, especially after the implementation of CCE.
RTE ACT 2009
RTE Act 2009 is an educational package adopted by the Parliament for implementation in all schools across the country. This package encompasses many features which require to be fulfilled before the implementation of what is envisaged in RTE Act 2009. Among them include infrastructural development, strict adherence to the teacher student ratio of 1:30 & 1:35 in the primary and upper-primary sections respectively (Part II Schedule, item no 1(a) and (b)), and enhanced pay package for teachers, provision for midday meal for students etc. KVS has taken a parochial approach to these highlights of RTE Act 2009 and pitch-forked the implementation of the eight period time table schedule before ensuring that the ground facilities have been done for its meaningful and effective implementation. The newly introduced work pattern demands every teacher to spend an additional of 1 hour and 20 minutes in the school. It means that the teacher has to be in the school for 7 hours 30 minutes. What seems to be more outlandish is that KVS has adopted its own version of teacher- student ratio (1:40&1:35 in the primary and upper primary sections respectively) showing total disregard and disrespect to the very spirit of RTE Act 2009. The proposal mooted regarding the case when the class strength exceeds 50 students, is that contractual teachers shall be appointed and that their payment made out of school fund. But the dubious legacy with KVS is that promises are given in plenty. Sadly enough, even those promises given in the past are waiting endlessly on the wings.
Eight Period Time Table and its fall-out
The present 9 period schedule of working has got each teaching period of 35 minutes duration. Now, this work schedule stands completely changed. Each teaching period has got duration of 40minutes except the 1st and 5th periods (45 minutes). Predictably, the new time table will create surplus teachers because the allotment of periods to different categories of teachers remains the same. i.e. every PGT will get 33 teaching periods, TGT 36 periods and PRT 39 periods per week respectively. This decision of changing the work schedule of the teachers was unilaterally taken at the top. The teaching community of KVS was in the dark about the proposed introduction of this work schedule. Undeniably, all the teachers working with KVS are an inalienable part of the organization called KVS. When there is a decision to be taken, pertaining to the teachers, it is the teachers whose opinion is to be sought first on the matter. In this context, it is not to be forgotten that KVS has always been in the limelight because of the unselfish and unstinted work and commitment of every member of this teaching community. The most contentious point regarding the
allocation of teaching periods is that every primary teacher, when allocated with 39 teaching periods, will get seven teaching periods each for 3 days and 6 teaching periods each for the remaining three days. Besides this backbreaking-share of 39 teaching periods, a teacher gets substitution periods when another teacher will be on leave. In sum, a primary teacher will fully be engaged without getting any breathing-space once the school starts functioning. Another thing to be noted here is that we have a brief recess of only 20 minutes. As per KVS Circular F.No.110333/1/2011-KVS HQ (Acad) Circular 27 dated 17.02.12 serial nos 12,13 wherever Sanskrit TGTs do not fulfill their requisite/allotted quota of period in upper primary/secondary sections the balance period will be adjusted by allotting teaching periods of Hindi. The same way PGTs those who do not have requisite/allotted period balance periods will be adjusted in the upper primary classes respectively. This will make many senior teachers surplus will be transferred to remote areas. So it should be withdrawn with immediate effect.
State government schools and Delhi government schools are working for 6 hours with one hour recess. KVS alone has got the work schedule of 6 hours 10 minutes with the recess duration of 20 minutes a day. Aggravating this predicament, the proposed implementation will result in an increase of another 1 hour and 20 minutes. Attached with this notice is a study report of the workload on every teacher. This report, prepared on the basis of the existing time schedule of 6hours 10minutes, shows that every KV teacher is working more than 45 hours a week, (to be precise, 94 hours per week. See the study report). RTE Act 2009 also stipulates the same duration of working hours for the teachers. So it is not required to increase the working hours from 6hours 10 minutes to 7hours 30 minutes.
Five days a week
All the central government offices including KVS, regional and headquarters are working five days a week. Mentionably, all the private schools affiliated to CBSE are also working five days a week. KVS alone has got a different work schedule. Even the primary students are confined in the class rooms for a long duration of 6hours and 10 minutes six days a week. It shows the extent of apathy that KVS shows towards the emotional and psychological growth of the children. The teachers also have to work six days a week. This is in gross violation the children’s right.
Agitation, the only way-out
In the light of the proposed implementation of the KVS version of RTE Act which is nothing short of the case of tying the cart before the horse, AIKVTA has decided to register its protest against its implementation at national level. Observe 16th March 2012 as BLACK DAY and conduct protest meetings and sit-in dharnas in front of the Vidyalayas. As part of the agitational programme in Trivandrum city, all the teachers of the KendriyaVidyalayas in the Trivandrum cluster will conduct a protest march, gagging their mouth from the Office of the Accountant General to General Post Office junction at 3 O’ clock in the evening on 16th March 2012.
