Thrissur: The Higher Education Department will collect the details of teachers who haven't finished the portions of Plus Two classes. An unofficial data collection of the details of teachers who have taught only below 60 percent portions will be carried out. The school principals were informed through WhatsApp to collect details including the designation of teachers and the subject they’re teaching.
A Regional Deputy director in the state instructed the principals to collect the details of teachers who haven’t finished enough portions. Other deputy directors are expected to issue similiar instructions in the coming days. This has also been interpreted as a move to finish portions quickly as the government declared there will be no change in the exam date.
Most of the schools have only completed 60 percent portions for Plus Two classes. When data collection was started to see the progress of the portions, most teachers out of fear wrote that almost 70 percent was completed.
The teachers claim that from November 1 to February 28, there are only 144 hours of class. They have pointed out that it is impossible to finish more than 70 percent of the portion within that time frame.
The government is, however, considering the number of hours since the online classes started on June 1. 220 days or 1000 hours was an academic year before Covid.
