School-childrenKundapur: Primary school children studying at Kodapadi Government Junior Primary School at Gujjadi protested against the transfer of their favourite teacher on Thursday.

Children were found pleading the school authorities to hold the transfer order and shouted slogans against the transfer.

Nearly 50 students study from 1st standard to 5th standard in the school. Recently there was a indication of transfer of additional teacher Girija.

Girija is teaching in that school since past 17 years. She joined the school as teacher and then promoted as the head mistress of the school. As per the government rules only two teachers are allowed to service for 60 students. As there are three teachers for 50 students, Girija had received the transfer order.

“The government is searching for the excuses to close the school. Girija have tried hard to keep this school open,” said locals.

The children boycotted the classes and protested outside the gate. They were backed by their parents and SDMC members. The gate was locked and a call went to local educational officer. The officer said to be come at 10 am, but he arrived at 11.30 am.

Byndoor Education Officer Nagesh Nayak said that he was just following the government’s rule. The action had to be taken as per the circular. Same confusion is going on in many other places also. The decision is being reviewed.

The parents threatened the officer to send their children to other schools if the transfer order is not revoked.

Zilla panchayat Member Shobha G Putran, Kundapur taluk panchayat President Jayashree Mogaveera, Vice-President Pravin Shetty Kadke and others visited the place.
