New Delhi: The latest order of Haryana's Education Department of a directive to teachers to refrain from wearing jeans at school, has drawn a lot of flak from Haryana guest teachers’ association.
According to the order, the district education officers have been asked to ensure that teachers are not dressed in jeans when they come to school or office of the education department.
Additional Chief Secretary, Haryana, School Education Department, P K Das stated, “The orders have been issued at Directorate level. The logic is – the teacher is expected to be a role model to students and display discipline and propriety in dressing.”
However, Deepak Goswami, general secretary of the Rajkiya Prathmik Shikshak Sangh, Haryana, responded by saying that such a step should have been taken after consultation with the teachers’ associations.
Last year, the Surat Municipal Corporation had introduced a dress code for teachers which had directed male teachers to wear ivory-green striped shirts with dark green trousers and female teachers to wear sarees.
