Raj Bhavan school in the eye of storm
- The school principal allegedly issued TCs due to poor academic performance of students
- School asked to take back students willing to continue their studies
Hyderabad: Officials from the Hyderabad District Education Office (DEO) have asked the Government School, Raj Bhavan to take back around 30 students issued transfer certificates.
According to sources in the School Education department, officials from the Hyderabad District Education Office (DEO) were asked to inquire into the incident following complaints of students have been issued transfer certificates for poor performance in their academics.
Speaking to The Hans India, a senior official from the School Education department, Hyderabad said "Along with a representation from some of the teachers of the Raj Bhavan Government School, few of the parents have also expressed their concern over the school principal taking a tough stance towards the Class X students, who are performing poorly".
Adding, however, the in-charge principal K Suman refuted the allegations and said that the students have taken the TCs on their own for various reasons including to take admission at a school nearer to their residences.
However, officials said that the department gives a clear schedule on conducting the remedial and special classes. The school conducts remedial classes for those who are not able to cope up and special classes to the bright students.
Following these efforts, the overall pass percentage of the school in the SSC examinations has made it to one among the top government schools in the city.
However, the principal and headmasters of the schools have to give explanations to the higher-ups for the poor performance as well as not retaining the overall pass percentage.
It was against this backdrop that the principal in question is allegedly issued TCs as continuing of poor performing students might hit the overall pass parentage of the school.
"A report on the issue has been sent to the higher-ups in the School Education department for taking action against the principal.
The school is asked to call up the parents of the students, who were issued or obtained TCs on their own and inquire if they wanted to readmit their children.
If the parents are willing, then the school is asked to take back the students, who all were earlier issued TCs.
