[RxPG] Ranchi, May 15 - School teachers in Jharkhand have decided to protest a proposed move by the state government to keep schools open during the summer and boycott the classes.

According to a directive of the state's Human Resources Development - department, all schools in the state would continue during summer and the classes, to be called summer camps, would be held during the morning hours between 7 A.M. and 10 A.M.

The summer camps will be held for a few weeks in all the 35,000 primary, middle and high schools in the state.

The directive, which was issued last week, has asked 67,000 teachers not to leave station during this period.

The teachers have announced to boycott the classes and also demanded that vacation is granted to both students and them.

'How the HRD can issue such a directive? We will oppose the directive and press that the vacation are given following the previous trend,' said Sanjay Trivedi, member of Jharkhand Primary Teachers' Association, here Monday.

Other teacher organisations have also decided to oppose the HRD directive.

'If the department wants to organise summer camps then it should offer incentive for the teachers. And the teachers' leave should be made optional on whether they want to enjoy vacation or want to take incentive,' Shiva Kumar, another teacher, said Tuesday.
