The 50 percent attendance demands presence in school on every alternate day. In such situation the teachers’ bodies have asked that how there will be 50 percent attendance of teachers in schools.
The teachers’ bodies have appealed chief executive officers and education officers to look into this issue.
Services of many teachers are being associated with coranavirus epidemic measures programme under Disaster Management Act from last six months.
