Physical education teachers plan strike

Staff Reporter

‘Implement panel's recommendations'

BANGALORE: Members of the Karnataka State Primary and High School Physical Education Association have decided to go on strike on June 30 demanding that the Government implement the recommendations made by Prof. L.N. Vaidyanathan Committee.

The committee was set up following the Government's plan to re-organise the Physical Education Development programme in the Education Department.

“We have written to the Chief Minister as well as the Education Minister who had promised that they will look into the matter,” association president Shivalinge Gowda told presspersons here on Saturday. Urging the Government to re-organise the 1967 Cadre and Recruitment Rules, he said: “We have been demanding that physical education teachers be designated as assistant masters. Even this demand has been overlooked.”

Though physical education is a compulsory subject from first standard to 10th standard, Mr. Gowda pointed out that it was being taught only from sixth to ninth standard. “Lack of interest on the part of the Government has resulted in stopping printing of physical education textbooks,” he added.

Physical education teachers of aided and unaided higher primary and high schools are expected to participate in the strike.
