Kottarakkara: Even though the final exams of the Higher Secondary First year (Plus One) in the state-run schools are nearing, the teachers are still lagging behind in covering the entire syllabus.

The state schools fell into an unprecedented crisis due to the delay in starting first year classes in Kerala. The higher secondary classes started after the Onam holidays due to delay in the admission process.

As a result, the schools only received 80 working days in place of 200 academic days planned.

From the first week of February, the plus two practical exams will be held followed by the model exam, therefore, the classes will be nominal in the coming days.

The teachers pointed out that the crisis was due to the unnecessary delay in the Plus One admission process. Parents also alleged that schools are placing students under pressure without covering the syllabus on time.

Further, the admission process faces setbacks due to delays in the enrollment of students under disability reservations. Meanwhile, the shortage of teaching staff also contributed to the current crisis.

With just days to go before the end of the academic year and the commencement of public examinations, the government has ordered the transfer of teachers to higher secondary schools.

The higher secondary authorities released the provisional list for the transfer of 2986 teachers on Saturday evening. However, 75 per cent of teachers have placed transfer requests to institutions where they were employed now.

However, around 600 teachers will have to shift schools based on the government order. The majority of these transfers are occurring in Kannur, Kasaragod, Wayanad, Malappuram and Idukki districts.
