GOA: Many of the close to 12,000 school teachers from the primary to the higher secondary level are set to return to work today, as there has been no circular from the state government on continuing the work from home arrangement for teachers.
On July 25, after much persuasion by teachers, the state government finally complied with the Centre’s directives. The DoE issued a circular allowing teaching and non-teaching staff in Goa’s schools to work from home upto July 31.
However, August 1 was declared a public holiday due to Eid and this was followed by a Sunday. On Monday, the teachers will be forced to return to work. As Covid-19 cases are rising in Goa, there is panic among teachers. “Central government orders ask to keep schools and colleges closed till August 31, but Goa government is not following these norms,” said a teacher.
