PUDUCHERRY: Students of a Government High School at Kombakam resorted to a road blockade on the Kombakkam-Villianur road, protesting the shortage of teachers and lack of basic facilities in the school.

The school does not have a Tamil teacher from the fifth to 10th standard, causing a big issue for class X students, who have to appear for the public examination.

The school does not have teachers for science and mathematics subjects also and the two posts have been vacant.

The parents said that even proper toilet facilities for students were not available in the school.

The road-roko was withdrawn following the intervention of police and Chief Education Officer Kalaiselvan, who assured that the problems would be solved.

The Chief Education officer said that though a Tamil teacher from Reddiayarpalayam Government High School was posted on Friday, he had applied for three days’ leave, citing illness.

Meanwhile, Director of Education E Vallavan said that he would review the position with respect to teachers in all the government schools.
