Short on teachers, jails take govt schools’ help


LUCKNOW: Looking to mend the problem through diverting sources from government colleges, the Basic Education Council (BEC) will deploy 52 academics to show children of women inmates in 41 central and district jails across the state. The academics can be deployed from within reach colleges to replenish the vacant posts soon in more than a few districts.

The council took the decision following a request from prison administration and reform services.


With four academics, the Gautam Buddh Nagar district prison would get the utmost collection of professionals, followed through Budaun (three). The central jails in Naini, Fatehgarh and Bareilly would get two academics each. “BEC does no longer have any mounted sanctioned power of academics, so they would be employed from colleges located nearest to the prison on the foundation of availability,” said a BEC official.


Secretary of BEC, Ruby Singh, said, “We had received a request from the UP Prisons Administration and Reform Services that their jails have been dealing with an acute shortage of academics and it was once affecting the research of kids of women inmates. There are also some inmates who wish to study more, so the council determined to send 52 academics over these jails to show the inmates and their children.”


District fundamental training officials had been tasked to deploy academics in this kind of way that the teacher-student ratio isn't disturbed in government colleges. “The administration advised the council that it wanted eight headmasters and 44 academics. The DBEOs must ensure that the student-teacher ratio from the college the place the lecturers are being transferred isn't disturbed,” said Singh. Jail inmates can continue study up to elegance XII through appearing for examinations carried out through Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU). The inmates study the direction prescribed through UP Secondary Education Board (UP Board).
