Images of teachers will now adorn the walls of school, Yogi ensures

Lucknow: In yet another major development, to ensure optimum utilisation of the resources available in the state, Yogi wants images of teachers in schools. The step is being seen to keep a check on the education system in the state and to ensure that teacher-student equation improves.

Off late UP CM Yogi Aditynath has taken major steps to improve the overall situation in the state and these steps are already making the monk-CM popular among common man--across all castes and creed.

In a bid to improve education quality in state-run schools and ensure regular attendance, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath wants images of faculty members pasted on school walls.

This will be done to check and then cross-check from the students whether those whose pictures were displayed attend schools regularly and teach or not.

Adityanath took the decision at a meeting in Gorakhpur late on Sunday.

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.

He said some teachers in these schools use proxies to teach while they themselves draw hefty salaries without doing any work. This would no longer be tolerated, Adityanath told officials.

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.
