Teacher turns up in towel, vest in Uttar Pradesh

Lucknow, DHNS: July 20, 2013 12:12 IST
Students at a primary school in Uttar Pradesh’s Amroha district, about 450 km from here, had the shock of their life on Friday when a teacher turned up in towel and vest.

The teacher at an upper primary school at Nanai went about his job, unperturbed by the shock he had caused and oblivious of the presence of girls in the school.

According to reports, he also checked copies of the students.

Education department officials have taken a serious note of the matter. “We have come to know about the matter and the same is being investigated...stern action will be taken against the teacher concerned if it is found to be correct,” the officials said.

The incident reflects the sorry state of affairs of primary education in Uttar Pradesh. Primary education suffers from an acute shortage of teachers. Many schools exist only on paper, while several others are run from only one room. In many cases, the students are found to be studying under trees. The school buildings are often in a dilapidated condition.

Besides, many teachers are not competent to handle their responsibilities.

Barely a few days ago, principal of an upper primary school in the state’s Baharaich district, about 200 km from here, was handed over compulsory retirement after she reportedly failed to answer what the education officials termed a “simple fifth standard question.”
