Odisha Govt Asks Headmasters To Take At Least Two Classes Daily
Bhubaneswar: The State government Monday asked the headmasters/headmistresses of all government schools to take at least two classes per day apart from school management works.
In a letter to all District Education Officers (DEOs), the School and Mass Education Department additional secretary Alok Kumar Kar directed to ensure classroom teaching by the headmasters/ headmistress along with supervising the classes being taken by other teachers.
“The headmaster being the most experienced and qualified person in the school should take at least two classes daily and make supervision of the classes being taken up by other teachers,’ the letter read.
The directive comes after the principal secretary during his visit to different schools had found that the head of the schools skipped classes by involving themselves in management activities.
The DEOs have been asked to implement the order at the earliest in their respective jurisdiction.
