Appealing to reconsider the move to transfer the Tiruchy Corporation schools as quarantine centres, the primary school teachers approached the district collector here on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, the Tamil Nadu Primary School Teachers Association led by its district secretary S Neelakandan approached District Collector S Sivarasu and appealed to reconsider the decision. The teachers said, since the number of cases in the city has been increasing, converting these schools into quarantined centres is not a welcome move.
They said that all these corporation schools are located in the middle of the city and there are thickly populated residential locations around the schools and the parents have been enquiring with the teachers and the office assistants of these schools and have been demanding the teachers to take proper steps to withdraw the idea. They also have been demanding the transfer certificates of their wards. At this juncture, the school education department has asked the respective school administration to stock the free textbooks, slippers and bags before June 30.
