Teachers are best known for the role of educating the students that are placed in their care. It is quite astonishing that teacher in India often remain engaged in non- teaching activities and roped in to do other work too. It takes a toll on them and affects teaching and then also impacts upon quality education through poor results, non-teaching duties like election invigilation, population counting census work, involvement in midday meal program, voter list preparation keep teachers away from school and affecting their primary duty.
Observations in relation with this study was done in 20 government schools from two district Gaya and Nawada including primary, secondary and high schools in which number of selected teachers was 300. In all of them only 14% were having high educational qualifications and 44% were graduate or undergraduate. In the total number of teacher only 42% was trained. Results showing, the most teachers not like to be engaged in non-teaching work in comparison with their class teaching work.
