During the protest the parents and students urged the authorities to withdraw the order to transfer the teachers. As many as 544 children have been studying in the school. In fact, the school has the best student enrolment among all government schools in Mangaluru city. Up to the seventh standard, the school had 10 permanent teachers. After the transfer of five teachers, no teacher was deputed in place of the transferred teachers so far. Speaking on the issue B K Imthiyaz, DYFI district unit president, said, "The school had as many as 11 teachers. A physical education teacher retired recently. Under the government’s ‘Nali Kali’ scheme, the teacher and children ratio should be 30:1. There are 150 children studying in the first to third standard schools. These classes need five teachers. Who will teach the remaining students?"
