CBSE to keep a check on non-teaching work
As Teachers’ Association lodges complaint against non academic work in private schools to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the board has decided to issue a circulation to around 16,000 private schools affiliated to it according to which the schools will present a list of teaching and non teaching staff before CBSE.   
 
The affected teachers in their complaint said that they were asked to perform non-teaching work such as collecting fees and calling the parents and informing them regarding tuition fees and also performing school-bus duties. 
 
They were also asked to teachers were asked to watch the school children during the lunch break time and perform administrative duties like filling up the forms.
 
As per teachers, they did not complain to schools as they feared losing jobs.
 
According to CBSE's directions, private schools should maintain separate teaching staff, non-teaching staff and administrative staff.
 
As a consequence, some top schools have been asked to share information regarding the details of non-teaching and teaching staff. Around 1, 200 schools will share information for that matter to CBSE.
