CHITWAN: As the local administration has begun monitoring on involvement of professors and teachers of colleges into more than one institutions in the single shift, many of such teachers tendered resignations.
The action was demanded by the trend that many teachers mark attendance at community colleges, but take classes at private colleges at the same time.
Meanwhile, seven senior teachers at Saptagandaki Multiple Campus in Bharatpur have tendered their resignation, according to Assistant Campus Chief Dharma Raj Ghimire.
Likewise, five senior teachers at Maiyadevi Kanya Campus in Bharatpur and two at Bal Kumari Campus, Narayangadh are also reported to have put in papers.
Also some teachers at government colleges have stopped marking their attendance, according to Principal of the Bharatpur-based School of Health Sciences, Achyut Dahal.
“The monitoring carried out by the administration is positive,” said Chairman of the Nepal Public Campus Association, Chitwan, Krishna Subedi.
“Some private higher secondary schools would be directly affected by this,” said Chairman of the Higher Secondary Schools Association, Chitwan, Bhupendra Dhital, on the grounds that the professors of community academies have also been taking the ‘responsibility’ of those schools.
The local administration has sought routine of professors from all the institutions, claiming it would act against the lecturers who teach two or more colleges in a single shift.
