Now Yogi Adityanath plans a 'wall of shame' in schools to check attendance of teachers

Yogi Adityanath took the decision at a meeting in Gorakhpur on April 30. The CM expressed worry over the falling standards in state-run schools.

In a bid to improve the quality of education in government schools of Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has come up with a new idea, which’ll give sleepless nights to government teachers! The UP CM has said that he wants images of faculty members pasted on school walls.

According to an IANS report, the decision has been taken by Adityanath so that the government officials can check and then cross-check from the students whether the teachers, whose pictures were displayed, attend the school regularly to teach or not.

Yogi Adityanath took the decision at a meeting in his home-town of Gorakhpur on April 30. The Chief Minister expressed worry over the falling standards in the primary and junior high schools in the state.

He said officials would conduct surprise inspections and reviews in the schools. Students would be queried on the regularity of their teachers. The UP CM said that many teachers in state-run schools use proxies to teach while they themselves draw hefty salaries without doing any work. He mentioned that this would no longer be tolerated.

He was determined to ensure that the standard of education in the state-run schools improved even if it meant taking out-of-the-box steps or tough measures.

Yogi Adityanath has taken several important decisions ever since he became the CM of UP. Last month, he decided to form an anti-land mafia task force to tackle the menace of land grabbing in the state. He also issued a notice that the Chief Minister could call government officials “at any time” on landlines to ensure they are at work.
