TRS govt plans to provide relief to 4 lakh teachers who lost jobs due to COVID-19 pandemic
It's not just the schools, coaching institutes, engineering and degree colleges were also forced to remove inexperienced or less experienced teaching staff
Hyderabad TRS working president, KT Rama Rao while interacting with managements of private educational institutes on Tuesday said, "It's a difficult task to provide relief to 400,000 teachers who have lost jobs during COVID-19 lockdown immediately after the distribution of flood relief. But TRS government will do what it can to help teachers." "We have not chalked out a plan yet on so as to, how to help teachers, but we will come up with something," he added. Despite help from the central government, we have been providing relief to the poor. We will continue to do so until everything is back to normal," he said.
"There are no immediate plans for the betterment of the public education sector in the state. We will continue to do what we are doing. We are continually asking the central government for help but there is none. The state needs more Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya schools. The proposals for IIM, IIIT in (Karimnagar), NIT and the Tribal University which was promised by the central government are still pending," continued the minister.
"At least 40 per cent teaching staff has got sacked from budget private schools which hold 54 per cent of total state's students," Telangana Recognised School Management Association (TRSMA) organising president, Sreedhar Reddy. "If the schools remain closed and parents don't pay the fees we have to, continually remove more and more teachers. Unless the government helps us with some aid." It's not just the schools, coaching institutes, engineering and degree colleges were also forced to remove inexperienced or less experienced teaching staff.
