The DM says, “She should be suspended immediately. She is an English teacher and she can’t even read English properly,” says a visibly angry Devendra Kumar Pandey, district magistrate.
When the teacher mumbles something in her defence, Pandey says, “So what? You’re BA pass, aren’t you? I did not even ask you to translate, all I asked for was that you read a few lines in English from the textbook…and you couldn’t do that.”
Pandey had visited the school, located in the Sikandarpur Sarausi area of Unnao district, on Friday as part of a surprise check.
He first asked the students to read something from their English book. When they started fumbling, he asked the teacher to read a few lines. The teacher also failed to utter straight sentences in English. The DM then asked the Basic Shiksha Adhikari (BSA) to suspend her.
BSA Pradeep Kumar Pandey said further action will be taken after the district magistrate submits his report.
