Speaking on the occasion of Teacher’s Day 2022 in Vidhana Soudha, he also ordered a strict vigil against false Certificates of No Objection (NOC) issued to private schools and also said action would be taken against education officials involved in corruption.

“There have been several instances where fake NOCs were obtained from the education department by private schools. The schools obtain them illegally through low level officials in the education department. In addition, allegations have been made against education officials involved in corruption. With all of this in mind, the government will set up a committee to investigate these allegations and take strict action against the violators,” Nagesh said.

He warned the Deputy Director of Public Instruction Officers (DDPI) and Block Education Officers (BEOs) accused of corruption in the previous government.

Nagesh stated that the irregularities in the 2014-15 teacher recruitment process during the congressional regime are under investigation by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).

Prime Minister Basavaraj Bommai, who was also part of the Teacher’s Day, announced separate toilets for boys and girls in each school on August 15 next year. Bommai has announced that an additional 4,000 anganwadis will be built in the coming days.

Bommai was concerned about the teacher shortage in government schools and said the government plans to hire as many teachers in the previous year as the number of teachers about to retire in the following year. The education department has already recruited 15,000 teachers for the 2022-23 academic year.

The government marked Teacher’s Day by honoring teachers with a state award from various districts of Karnataka and also awarding schools selected in the prestigious category.

Basavaraj Sungari, a teacher at a government school, said: “The government should focus more on developing professional skills in teachers, especially when using digital technologies such as augmented reality, virtual reality, 3D and 4D to teach. this way we can improve experiential learning for students and there needs to be more awareness in North Karnataka to encourage the use of toilets and maintain hygienic conditions in schools.”

Jagadeesh A, another teacher at a government school, said: “Transportation for teachers in rural areas is a major challenge. I wish the government could help bridge the transportation gap for teachers who have to travel long distances in rural areas to go to school. The government should also tackle the teacher shortage by looking at the subject-related relationship instead of the student-teacher relationship. Otherwise, the burden on teachers is heavy. There is also a growing demand among teachers, especially female teachers, who demand separate toilets for them.”
