Tribune News Service
Sangrur, November 19

Government teachers have alleged their senior officers have been pressuring them to ensure 100 per cent attendance of students for the Punjab Assessment Survey (PAS).

Members of the Democratic Teachers Front (DTF) along with two other organisations have written to senior authorities in this regard.

"Senior officers have been putting pressure on teachers in the state to ensure 100 per cent attendance in the PAS, which is not possible. Being a teacher, we cannot commit a fraud with students' parents," said Balvir Chand, district president of the DTF, after a meeting here today.

"The authorities should not try to tamper with the figures and take required steps to bring improvement in the education system," said Chand.

The members have further urged senior authorities seeking fulfilment of long pending demands, including implementation of the 6th pay commission report and regularisation of contractual staff. Members of 6060 teachers union and ETT 6505 union also attended the meeting.
