The Goa government school teachers can heave a sigh of relief as soon they would be able to receive a solution for quick resolution of infrastructural issues in schools like leaking toilets or non-functional taps through an upcoming mobile application. The Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar stated at the Legislative Assembly today that Education department will soon launch a mobile app for the purpose. The chief minister explained that the government was facing infrastructure-related issues in rural areas, as the contractors were denying to work there, especially in tribal areas.
"The government had spent Rs 68 crore on infrastructure in schools in the last five years. We are developing a mobile application, which will be given to the government school teachers," he said. The CM Parrikar also added that the teachers could inform the Education department about a problem like a leakage in toilets or non-functional taps in their schools through this app. "They will get a response within the 48 hours," he stated, explaining the utility of the upcoming app.
The Goa government had hired about 182 teachers in the last 10-15 days after issuing advertisements, he said. He claimed that the state-run schools are performing on par or even better than the grant-in-aid institutions (schools). In such conditions, it is important for the government schools to pull up the socks. "Of 77 high schools, 22 high schools achieved one hundred per cent result for the SSC exam while 26 schools achieved 90-99 per cent," he said.
The government has constantly been working in order to make sure that the teachers are treated in a good manner and they get all the facilities that are required. It is very important to have a sustainable work atmosphere in schools, for the teachers. Many teachers have been complaining about the same issues for a long time now.
