Students stage protest in support of teacher

 Students of Rotary English Medium High School on Paduvalapattana Road, here on Saturday, staged a protest against the school management for suspending a teacher over a complaint on corporal punishment.

It is said that Santosh, a mathematics teacher, had beaten up a class X student for failing to crack a sum. So, the victim’s parents had brought the matter to the notice of the school management and Block Education Officer (BEO) M R Anantharaju, who had asked the school authorities to conduct an inquiry. The authorities have issued a show-cause notice to Santosh and have suspended him till the completion of an inquiry.

The agitating students said, “Santosh is a good teacher and the issue is raised over personal issues. The authorities should withdraw his suspension order and should create a healthy atmosphere in the school.” Even a few parents accompanied the students.

School secretary Asan convinced the students and parents to drop the agitation. He said, the management has convened a parents and teachers meeting to discuss the matter on Monday. Everything will be solved in the meet, he assured.
