A section of students of the Kadambur government high school, located in the Rishivandhiyam Assembly constituency, and their parents blocked vehicular traffic on the Thirukkoilur road on Wednesday, protesting transfer of four teachers without making any alternative arrangements.

It is learnt that through counselling, four teachers of the school were given transfer and the proceedings in this regard were initiated today.

The students and parents voiced concern over the transfers, coming at a time when the quarterly examinations are round the corner, and even without appointing teachers for the vacant posts.

They also sought better amenities and compound wall to the school. On the assurance of the officials that their demands would be met they dispersed after an hour.
