HSC teachers have threatened that they will delay in assessing papers if their demands are not met. They said that if the state government fails to fulfill long-pending demands of junior college teachers, they will assess only one paper a day, from Monday, as part of their non-cooperation movement against the state.
Usually, teachers receive around 350 answer-sheets for assessment of papers such as English. If their demands are not met soon, the agitation may delay the announcement of HSC results. An early announcement of results is important from this year as the state plans to hold the repeaters’ exam in July, instead of October.
Around 60,000 teachers in the state, including 6,000 from Mumbai, are affiliated to the Maharashtra Federation of Junior College Teachers’ Organisation. The organization has approached the state government with their demands several times but the state has failed to find an amicable solution.
