Sources in the Education Department disclosed that the performance of government school teachers is being closely monitored and the teachers, aged 50 years and above, could be given forced VRS for their poor results.The proposal was floated in a meeting of senior officials of the state Education Department. It as also suggested that this will provide jobs avenues to educated, young and unemployed youths. The government is learnt to have also directed the officials of education department to furnish the reports of all such non-performing teachers across the state.The district education offices have been asked to compile lists of such teachers on the basis of their performance and dedication for work shortly so that the next course of action could be initiated. Taking a serious note of poor results of government schools in Classes X and XII examinations, Education Minister Aruna Chaudhary had warned the teachers of requisite action for their poor results. In 2016, state Education Minister Dr Daljeet Singh Cheema had also held a session with over 800 such teachers whose results were not even up to 20 to 25 per cent in their respective subjects.
