NALGONDA : The State government is planning to implement biometric system in all government schools in the state to tackle the allegations against teachers not attending the schools regularly.
Nalgonda, Suryapet and Yadadri districts have 2,294 primary schools, 614 upper primary schools and 1,174 high schools.
Most of the teachers appointed in remote areas like Devarakonda, Chandampet, Peddavoora and Chinthapally mandals are allegedly not going to schools regularly and some teachers are even hiring unemployed youth in their places to take classes paying nominal amounts of `4,000 to `5,000.
The district educational authorities have finalised tenders to supply biometric machines to schools.
The system will be linked to District Education Officer and state higher officials and they will know the information about the attendance of the teachers across the district.
District Education Officer Chandramohan said, “We have selected 25 per cent of schools to implement biometric system and sent the list to the government. We have selected the schools from remote areas for the system.”
