VIJAYAWADA: Marks scored by students in different subjects will be taken as indicators to asses the performance of teachers. Government schoolteachers, who ensure that all students pass in their respective subjects, will be rewarded, says District Collector Naveen Mittal.

Addressing teachers at the Best Teacher Award presentation function here on Wednesday, he said that a system had been evolved to reward subject teachers who ensured that all their students passed. And those who could not make at least 80 per cent of the children to pass would be served notices and punished, the Collector said.

Headmasters were being given awards till now, though subject teachers were fetching results with their effort. All 800 subject teachers, who achieved 100 per cent results in the district, would be commended, the Collector said.

Monitoring

He said teachers who lacked commitment had no place in the noble profession. The performance of primary schoolteachers would be monitored on the basis of three parameters - enrolment, retention and achievements of students after passing out of the school. Special effort was needed to ensure that children continued in school till X standard.

There was a 30 to 40 per cent reduction in class strength as the children moved from primary school to high school, he said.

Mr. Mittal said teacher-specific training could be given to teachers who needed to enhance their ability. There was no need to give the same training to all teachers.

He urged teachers in Krishna district to compete with teachers of the neighbouring West Godavari district, which stood first in the State. Krishna district that was in the 18th rank rose to 8th rank last year.

He said the number of subject teachers who were able to ensure all their students passed should swell from 800 to 1,600 at the end of this academic year.

Zilla Parishad chairman N. Sudharani said teachers had a great opportunity to serve society and urged them to work with commitment. District Educational Officer A. Satyanarayana Reddy urged teachers to make use of the latest teaching methods and get good results. Thirty teachers were felicitated on the occasion.

Certificate shortage

It was the last certificate that remained with them. District Collector and Zilla Parishad chairperson held on to it, as without it, their presence on the dais would have been meaningless. The list of teachers selected for the award was long. The certificates, after presenting to some, exhausted and the remaining teachers had to be satisfied with just a snapshot. While the collector and the ZP chairperson held on to the last available certificate, the teachers came and posed for a photograph.
