Edu secy: State will decide work from home for teachers

GOA: The state education department in complete disregard to the Centre’s rule has made it mandatory for teaching and non-teaching staff to attend schools, education secretary Nila Mohanan said on Friday that the state government will take a decision on the HRD ministry’s directive to allow teachers to work from home “as far as possible”.

But there weren’t many takers for Mohanan’s line of defence with headmaster of Shishu Niketan School in Navelim, Vithoba Desai, questioning whether the circular was sent by post. “No communication takes place by post now. It happens electronically. If they received July 6 circular on July 8, it appears they do not know how to access the directives coming to them,” he said.

Mohanan also said the home ministry’s June 29 guidelines had not prohibited teachers from being called to work. “MHA gave clear guidelines on June 29 for working of all workplaces. School is also a workplace,” she said.

Shishu Niketan’s Desai said it appeared that the education department “did not know how to interpret the instructions. When teachers did not get an email for a meeting called by the director (Vandana Rao) at short notice, she issued show cause notices to them. In this case, who should issue show cause notice to whom?”
