Thousands of guest teachers on Saturday boycotted the second edition of parent-teacher meeting to protest Delhi government’s ‘failure’ in keeping its promises. There are 17,000 guest teachers enrolled in Delhi government schools and according to All India Guest Teachers’ Association, around 6,000 teachers remained absent from the PTM (Parent-Teacher Meeting).
The Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya in Moradabad area had 79 guest teachers on strike following which they had to reschedule the meeting.
Directorate of Education (DoE) officials claimed that only a few groups of guest teachers boycotted and the disturbance was “minor” and did not affect the PTM in any major way.

Scores of guest teachers have been on a protest since October 5, boycotting exams and classes over government’s “failure” to keep its promises related to permanent appointment, a fixed policy for future, increase in wages, and reappointment of any guest teacher removed earlier.
Currently, the 17,000 guest teachers get wages in the range of Rs 700-900 per day, which comes around Rs 18,000-Rs 20,000 per month.
The Delhi government had last Saturday announced that they will be given a monthly salary and increased the amount to Rs 32,000 to Rs 34,000.
However, some guest teachers are not pleased and said that the move could be made “under pressure” due to the mega PTM and that they will not end the boycott till a circular is issued.
Keen parents queued up at Delhi government-run schools today to get feedback on performance of their wards at the second mega parent teacher meeting organised to increase interaction between the two.
First edition of this exercise was carried out in July by the AAP government with an aim to improve overall performance of the students.
