Study planned during the year 2012-13

•   Study on Resource Persons Development at Block Level

•   Study on the Development of Teacher Learning Center at Block Level

•   Impact of English Training conducted for the teachers of Keelara and Jodihodagatta Clusters.

                         Study on Single Teacher Schools


•    All the children are losing their precious learning time (all the children from 1-5 are made to sit
    in one class room. When teacher conducts NaliKali class, children of 3-5 standard are given
    reading and writing work)
•   In single teacher schools, only 201 teaching days are available after excluding the days spent on
    consultation meeting, review meetings, trainings, midday meal salary arrangement, electric bill
    payment etc.
•   Since the schools are situated in small habitations single teacher has to spend considerable time
    for arranging midday meal by way of getting vegetables and other works like civil work
•   Effectiveness of the teaching in few classes has affected due to the added load of documentation
•   There is inadequate time to focus on slow learners.

                        Study on Single Teacher Schools


•   Due to heavy work load teachers are unable to cover all the portions of few subjects like,
    English, Science and Mathematics (30% of the portion of English is not covered)
•   Time is a serious constraint for the preparation of science and mathematics of 4th and 5th
•   Inadequate time for subject revision.
•   When the teacher has to attend the meetings/trainings, the teacher from neighboring school is
    deputed. This deputed teacher conducts only the revision of the lessons.
•   When the teacher falls sick & a teacher on deputation is not available, the children have to go to
    the neighboring school accompanied by the cook. In this process the children lose their precious
    learning time.

    Study on the Capacity Development Program for DIET Faculty


•    DSERT concentrates more on Content enrichment & Usage of text books training.
•    Whenever Government introduces new programs, program based trainings are organized
•    Development Need Assessment of DIET Faculties are not undertaken
•    There is no structured Capacity building program for the DIET faculty.
•    Majority of the DIET Faculty (except PSTE) are not functioning as Subject Matter Specialists
•    As there is migration (transfer) between administration and academic posts, some of the faculty
     is not keen in academic development.
•    Study findings reflect that there is no induction program for the faculty of DIET

    Study on the Capacity Development Program for DIET Faculty


•    All the trainings given by DSERT to DIET are mainly related to MRP or RPs
•    Study findings reflect that the PSTE wing is teaching in a traditional method, these faculty need
     capacity development in subject and methodology.
•    ICT usage by DIET faculties is inadequate.
•    There is no process to assess the dilution in the cascade training model.
•    Opportunities for self-development is in- adequate (resource availability at library, internet
•    Vehicle is not available for field visits; time spent at the BRC and CRC level is inadequate.

    Study on the Utilization of Time by Head Teachers in Different Activities

•     All Head Teachers (HT) have great concern regarding their school development and put maximum
      effort to get support from teachers, SDMC & community.
•     Inadequate time for classroom observation and provide guidance to the teachers.
•      In the beginning of the year, HTs have heavy workload like- enrolment, issuing of TC to the
      outgoing children, issue of books, uniforms, bags and scholarship. Preparation of Annual plan of the
      school, meeting with teachers regarding time table, allotment of classes, samudayadatta shale,
      interaction with parents etc.
•     On monthly basis more time is spent on Meetings, updating reports as and when requested by CRP,
      BRP. Updating attendance, leave/training register, salary register of cooks, other inward and outward
      registers, indent of food materials, booking & providing gas cylinders when needed, cluster meeting,
      SDMC meeting, attending to bank work, etc.
•     On daily basis most of the time is spent on giving attendance to the cook, supply of food materials,
      bringing vegetables and other spices for cooking, supervision of hygiene, supervision of serving,
      cleaning, updating mid-day meal register & supervision of civil works

    Study on the Utilization of Time by Head Teachers in Different Activities

•     Most of the HTs have not utilized their casual leave /earned leave to full extent being dedicated to
•     More time is spent on the pre preparation of National days, Sports day, School day, Pratibha Karanji,
      Children’s day, Teacher’s day, Samudhayadatta shale etc.
•     Election, Census duties are additional burden which also consumes their precious school time.
•     HTs play a dual role of teacher & head teacher, they do take classes.
•     They are unable to function as per the plan due to insufficient time, less number of staff and other
      unforeseen hurdles.
•     All the information to the higher authorities is prepared manually and this consumes more time.

Functioning of Three Teachers Higher Primary School, Mandya North
& Maddur Block - Mandya District
• Out of Three teacher’s one senior teacher acts as Head Teacher and the contribution of HT for classroom
    process is limited due to other workload.
•   One teacher is handling Nali Kali classes (1-3 standards) and remaining two teachers including HT are taking
    classes from 4-7th standard.
•   The Nalikali Teacher is not adequately capacitated to handle third standard.
•   If Nalikali teacher is on training or on leave, the other teachers cannot handle the Nalikali classes.
•   The concept of multi grade teaching is not very clear among teachers.
•   Teachers are mainly focusing to complete the syllabus and there is less time to assess the learning levels.
•   Due to inadequate time effective TLMs are not prepared and used.
•   Many times teachers are not able to take classes as per the Time table.
•   When one teacher is on training or on leave, the other two teachers has to handle classes from 1-7 th.
•    If Head teacher is absent or on meeting then both classes as well as mid-day meal responsibility is on the
    other two teachers
•   Some time it so happens that when one teacher is on leave and other teacher or head teacher has to attend a
    meeting or training then single teacher has to handle classes from 1-7 th standard.
•   Without any break teachers are engaged continuously for all 7 periods. Due to this their energy level is low
    and their interest and motivation level is also low.


•   The teachers are frustrated and the passion towards profession has come down.

•    The teachers also have the burden of training the students in cultural activities, sports and make them to
    participate in the cluster, block and district level competitions.

•   There is also the responsibility of performing National festivals and other school related festivals and organizing
    cultural programs.

•   Apart from this they have to organize parent teacher meeting, SDMC meeting, Samudayadatta Shale meeting
    and also attend cluster level meetings and GP meetings if any.

•   The head teacher does not find sufficient time to involve in class room process as there are visitors, there is a
    need to update records & give to CRPs, attend cluster level meetings, bank work, send indent and purchase of
    mid-day meal materials and looking after mid-day meal process. In between other works like election list
    updating, going around the house holds that are left out. Children census, enrolment and admission work,
    issuing TC and marks card, issuing uniform and books, updating daily and monthly records so on.
