Biometrics system in schools sparks row

Chandrababu Naidu’s decision to introduce biometrics in schools to monitor the attendance has sparked a war of sorts between teachers’ unions and the Education Department. While Mr. Naidu’s plan is to strengthen the school education system by bringing in an effective attendance monitoring system, the proposal has not gone down well with a section of teachers who are going hammer and tongs at what they call an ‘imprudent’ way of spending funds which could be utilised to address more pressing needs like improvement of infrastructure or basic amenities.
