Ad hoc teachers to be done away with: DUTA Protest

Running parallel to the protest against fee hike at Jawaharlal University (JNU) is the protest of Delhi University Student’s Association (DUTA) against the circular issued by the University to hire ad hoc teachers as guest teachers. As reported by The Hindu, the University guidelines state that an ad hoc appointment can be made only “in case there is a sudden, unexpected and short vacancy, arising out of sudden sickness or death, on medical grounds (including maternity leave), abrupt leave or any other situation that may disrupt the normal process of teaching learning.”

There are an estimated number of 4,500 ad hoc teachers in Delhi University. The teachers who have rendered their services on contractual or ad hoc basis have been facing a lack of job security that will eventually lead to the collapse of the education system of one of the best universities in India. With a lack of security, the teachers have been protesting continuously against the guidelines of the University to hire ad hoc teachers as guest teachers. Clearly, turning teachers from classrooms to the streets will eventually lead to the degradation of higher education in our country. Many students had boycotted their semester exams in December to stand in unity with the teachers.

The vibrant atmosphere of Delhi University with buzzing students and teachers has turned into an insecure one with DUTA protests where teachers and students stand in solidarity. The contractual basis of employment of the teachers has also led to many students aspiring for professorship to look for other options even after qualifying the National Eligibility Test (NET) because of the fear of their services as teachers being dispensed with at the end of every semester. Due to this privatization of education, contractual teachers will receive salaries lower than the stipulated amount. The fear of expulsion has led many brilliant minds to quit their aspirations of molding young minds.
