Even as the boycott of assessment duty by over 21,000 teachers of unaided junior colleges across the state continues,the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher and Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) authorities on Friday said there will be no delay in declaring the results.
The state Permanently Unaided High School Teachers Action Committee,seeking 100 per cent aided status for their institutes,have been boycotting the HSC and SSC exam paper assessment.
We have been agitating for almost eight years for removal of the permanently unaided status,however nothing has been done in this matter. The state government in its policy for un-aided junior colleges/schools has made a provision where the institutes can apply and get aided status.
However school/college management are not willing to do so. With the permanently un-aided status,the managements extort huge amounts from students as fees and exploit the teachers too. These colleges do not get any grant from the government. Even the Sixth Pay Commission has not been implemented yet, said one of the teachers.
These teachers had returned bundles of answers papers given for correction. Till now,more than 45 bundles of answer-sheets have already been returned to the respective divisional board offices, an MSBSHSE official said. Over seven lakh students go to 8,644 un-aided colleges across Maharashtra. Teachers from these colleges constitute 20 per cent of the total assessors out of which over 21,000 represent the action committee.
The state board officials say they are confident that the boycott will not affect the HSC and SSC results.
