Teachers threaten to boycott  valuation of answer sheets of class XII examinations if no action is taken against miscreants who barged into the house of a teacher allegedly involved in the molestation of two girl students.

Speaking to Express on Sunday, Pondicherry State Teachers’ Federation leader Lakshumanasamy said the federation is not against taking action against the guilty teacher,but are opposed to some miscreants barging into the house of the teacher and manhandling the family members.

“Nobody should be allowed to take law in their hands and the act of the miscreants is against the rights of the family members of the teacher,” he said. He said if appropriate action is not taken against the miscreants, we will consider boycotting valuation of the answer sheets.

It might be recalled that Puducherry had been allotted a valuation centre for the Class X and XII examination papers by the Education Department of Tamil Nadu some time ago. The Puducherry Education Department is taking steps to implement the directions for the valuation centre here, which will be treated as a district correction centre.

Lakshumanasamy suggested that the head of girl’s school be a woman and a committee be constituted in all the schools to inquire into the complaints of sexual harassment.

“The Education Department should form a panel, which should meet every week and receive complaints from parents on sexual abuse. Special classes should be monitored and should be held only if the principal is present,” he added.
