TARN TARAN: Vacant posts of lecturers in government senior secondary schools is bound to affect education in the area. .
A survey shows that in all 12 Government Senior Secondary Schools at Kot Dharm Chand Kalan, Chabal. Shahbazpur, Naushehra Pannuan, Chohla Sahib, Goindwal Sahib, Khadoor Sahib, Kairon, Kang, Bath and Tur villages, the posts of Principal are lying vacant. Senior Secondary School, Fatehbad (Girls), is the only exception where Ms Pritpal Kaur is working for the past two years.
Though at every school posts of lecturer are vacant, the tale of Chohla Sahibs girls school is exceptional. there not a single post of lecturer has been filled, including that of Principal.
The school was upgraded up to the plus 2 level in 1994. For years together admission for plus 1 and plus 2 classes was not done. Ms Sukhwinderjit Kaur, officiating Principal, says there is not a single Class IV employee.
Ninetyfour students of Classes plus 1 and plus 2 come and return home without being taught a single word. Out of five sanctioned posts, two are vacant at Kot Dharm Chand Kalan and two at GGSSS, Fatehbad.
The situation at Chabal, Shahbazpur, Kairon, Tur, Bath and Kang is more or less the same.
On the other hand there are schools where there are teachers in different subjects but no student. At Government Senior Secondary School, Khadoor Sahib 12 posts have been sanctioned by the Education Department for plus 1 and plus 2 classes, including Lecturer of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, but there is not a single student of these subjects in Class XII. The same is the case at Goindwal Sahib and Naushehra Pannuan where there are teachers of various subjects and no student.
Mr Kulwant Singh, a former Chairman, Block Samiti, Chohla Sahib, says this attitude by the Education Department will result in the failure of the experiment of senior secondary schools, especially in rural areas.

I am interested in astrology. Are there any recognised courses?
Gautam Bindra, Chandigarh
Due to the growing interest in ancient Indian disciplines of learning like Vastu Shastra, Yoga, Astrology, Palmistry, etc., these subjects are now being formally integrated into the university curriculum.
One such step is the opening of a Department of Astrology by the Potti Sreeramulu Telugu University, Hyderabad 500004, which offers PG Degree and diploma course in astrology (both regular and correspondence). It also offers a Certificate course in astrology. The department is planning to introduce a PG diploma in astro-medicine (Jyothirvaidyam).
