Telangana Teacher Transfers and Promotions to Resume from the 7 June 2024

The transfer and promotion process for teachers, which was abruptly halted in the last academic year, will resume on the 7th of this month. This announcement was made by Burra Venkatesham, the Principal Secretary of the Department of Education, who also revealed that a timetable will be issued for the process.

Transfer and Promotion Timeline Announced

Burra Venkatesham stated that the teacher transfers and promotions, which were put on hold last academic year, will recommence on the 7th of this month. He emphasized that the entire process is expected to be completed by the 20th of this month. Speaking at an informal press conference following the release of the PolyCET results on Monday, he highlighted the importance of this schedule.

Chief Minister to Launch School Program

Chief Minister Revanth Reddy will inaugurate the Badi Bata program on the 6th of this month. Venkatesham mentioned that ministers and MLAs will also visit various schools as part of this initiative. The government has sent a draft of policies for regulating fees in private schools to the Chief Minister. Once approved, the policy will be forwarded to a ministerial subcommittee chaired by Minister Sridhar Babu for further discussion. The final decision will be made after the committee’s review, with the regulation law likely to be implemented in the 2025-26 academic year.

Appointment of Permanent Vice-Chancellors

The state government has set a deadline of the 15th of this month to appoint permanent Vice-Chancellors for nine universities. Venkatesham expressed confidence that this target will be met, with clarity on the search committee meetings expected in the next two to three days.

School Repairs and New Initiatives

With schools set to reopen on the 12th of this month, Venkatesham assured that all minor repair works are being completed promptly. He also noted that new schools in newly formed panchayats do not require additional education volunteers, as existing teachers will be utilized.

Review of Upper Primary School System

In response to a query about the absence of 6th and 7th-grade students in many upper primary schools (UPS), Venkatesham indicated that the state might review and possibly abolish the UPS system in favor of maintaining primary and high schools only.

New Education Policy and Curriculum Decisions

The new National Education Policy (NEP) has been opposed by seven states, including Telangana. Venkatesham stated that the current government still needs to make a decision regarding the policy’s implementation. He also addressed the ongoing debate about which teachers should teach mathematics to 6th and 7th graders. Due to differing opinions, the state will allow schools to distribute periods equally among existing mathematics and physics teachers rather than imposing a uniform state-wide policy.
