Kalra said, Punjabi and English, both are compulsory subjects. Against the existing one and two posts, there is a need of 5 lecturers for Punjabi and four for English. Keeping in view the strength of the students, there is a need of 5 more lecturers for other subjects.
He said, in view of shortage of staff, the teachers for classes upto 10th have to teach the students of senior classes directly affecting the teaching of all the classes.
The educationist said, there is no doubt that there is increase in admission in the classes of Plus One and Two in government schools but simultaneously the sanction is accorded for recruitment of more teaches to maintain the teacher-student ratio.
Giving a proposal in this regards, Kalra said, the best course would be to do promotions in all the cadres as it will not put a heavy financial burden on the government except one additional increment and make recruitment in the master cadre and these arrangements will solve the problem of teacher-student ratio apart from maintaining the standard of education.
