‘90 per cent govt teachers remain on leave’
Our Correspondent

Sonepat, March 5
Mr Abhey Singh Chautala, MLA and president of the Haryana Olympic Sangh, has expressed his grave concern over the declining trend of education in the government educational institutions in the state and elsewhere. He also said that the government should take more stringent measures to improve the standard of education in them.

Speaking at the annual prize distribution function of the Kanya Mahavidyalaya at Kharkhauda town, 19 km from here yesterday, he regretted that at least 10 per cent teachers of the government schools and the government colleges were performing their duties well and they were providing education to the students in them. Other 90 per cent teachers always remain on furlough and they have failed to perform their duties well. This, he said, has resulted in the falling standard of education in the government educational institutions in the state.

He, however, lauded the role of the teachers of the privately-managed educational institutions for exhibiting their good performance in providing studies to the students and said that the parents of the students were giving preference to their institutions when they wanted to admit their wards in them thereby ignoring the government educational institutions. Mr Chautala appealed to the teachers to provide job-oriented education to the students, particularly the girls.
