Schools ignore CBSE order of updating websites

September 2, 2013, 12:00 am

Schools in the city which are affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) have fallen in line one by one with regard to uploading of details about school infrastructure, transport facilities, number of buses, fee structure, management members etc, on their websites.

However, the schools are opposing the uploading of salary details of teachers on their websites as asked by the CBSE. Managements argue that there was no need to put the salary details of the teachers in the public domain. They pointed out that the teachers themselves are raising objections over uploading their salary details on the website.

The managements are also apprehensive that if salary details of teachers are made public, then rival schools may try to poach their teachers by offering more salaries and this may also lead to unhealthy competition among schools.

It is mandatory for all CBSE schools to comply to these norms,� said D. Usha Reddy, chairperson, Hyderabad Sahodaya Schools Complex, an association of CBSE schools.

The CBSE has fixed a deadline of September 15 to upload all details. It had threatened to stop registration of Class XI and X students in 2014, if the schools failed to comply.
