Paper analysis of lessons X, XII to be accomplished on schedule: JACTO-GEO

Coimbatore: Amid the speculations that the examination results for Class X and XII might delayed after a few teachers associations boycotted the paper evaluation pressing their five points demand, the teachers associations coming under Joint Action Council of Teachers Organisations and Goverment Employees Organisations (JACTO -GEO) have declared that they would not boycott the paper evaluation in order to ensure the results are out on time.
“Our protest is not against students. So,we will not boycott the paper evaluation and we are working for the welfare of the students,” said A Mayavan of Tamil Nadu High and Higher Secondary Graduate Teachers Association, who is one of the state coordinators of JACTO-GEO.

Camps to evaluate the answer papers of Class XII commenced on April 12, while for Class X is to start on April 23. A total of 74 camps were being set up across the state to evaluate the papers of about two million students and more than 25,000 teachers were being assigned to the task.

“In a recent meeting, the coordinators decided and directed the teachers not to indulge in any protest that could affect the students,” Mayavan said.

“We would ensure that the paper evaluation work and the results will not be delayed even by a day,” he said.

“However, we decided to protest near the Secretariat on May 8, as the Class XII paper evaluation completes on May 6, pressing our demands,” he added.
