Middle and Primary Schools Need Permanent Heads

By EMN Updated: Jun 04, 2024 12:32 am

With the New Education Policy (NEP) in place, employees under the Department of School Education are facing much more work. The policy itself is fine, but the way its activities are implemented one after another can be overwhelming for many employees. This often results in limited teaching time as we are required to fulfil numerous additional duties. Unlike other employees, school heads are burdened with an overwhelming number of tasks. They must manage UDISE+, Shaala Siddhi, PFMS for school grants, Vidyanjali, Vidya Pravesh, ECCE, FLN, Nipun Bharat, NEP NECTAR project works, Guru Shala, midday meal records, meeting minutes, other register maintenance, accounting, stock and assets management, library records, and many more activities.

As a teacher in charge, I have the capacity to remember these duties, but there are countless others that come to mind only when suddenly assigned. Despite this extra workload, we do not receive additional incentives. The burden on school heads is so great that no one wants the responsibility, leading to frequent changes in leadership each year, which disrupts proper school administration.

My suggestion to the department is to appoint teachers in charge permanently with appropriate designations and enhanced increments for middle and primary schools. This could significantly improve the management system in these schools. Most higher secondary and high schools have improved their performance due to a proper administration system.
