BHOPAL: Lack of teachers in school, which affected the quality of education was behind the drop in pass percentage in the results of class X of the state board declared recently, sources in the school education department claim. This year almost 44% students failed in Class X exam.
"A large number of teachers were engaged in different projects and campaigns of the department and they missed their basic job- teaching," department officials analyse. "From removal of around 7,500 teachers in September last year to deputing 500 teachers for discharge of various duties, the reasons for are manifold," they maintain.

Under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan-II last, around 7,500 school teachers were made into cluster academic coordinator (CAC or Jan Shikshak) to teach at cluster resource centre (Jan Shiksha Kendra) in the state in September last year.
This came into effect in September even though the session started in mid-July.
The course is generally completed by January-February every year. In January this year, a 'Gyaanpunj' team was constituted which included five teachers from each district. This too was not much effective as hardly students were found in the schools.
Then, the correction procedure of electoral lists began in December 2011-January 2012. For this, around 6,000 teachers were pressed into duty in the state.
Also this year, imediately after the result was announced, school education minister Archana Chitnis said, "We would review school results."
