RMSA Finds Only 5.3% Schools in Karnataka have Teachers for All Core Subjects

 

A survey conducted by the Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA), a Central Government sponsored scheme, has found out that, of the 15,141 high schools in Karnataka, only 5.3% have teachers for all the subjects. The survey titiled, "Teacher demand and supply in secondary schools" reveals that the shortage was the result of non-sanctioning of posts, lack of effective teacher deployment, and small school size, which affects teacher distribution.

"There is a severe shortage of Hindi teachers in secondary schools. As per the rules, the government upgraded some higher primary schools (till class7) to class 8; even they lack subject teachers for class 8," said Niranjanaradhya VP, a fellow at the centre for child and the law, NLSIU.

The study recommends an efficient deployment policy and good planning along with the maintenance of a teacher database to ensure that the demand and supply of teachers are in synchronization.
