‘Teachers to teach, not cook meals’

Close on the heels of the mid-day meal tragedy in Bihar, the Allahabad high court has disapproved of teaching staff at government schools being saddled with the implementation of the scheme in Uttar Pradesh.
A division bench comprising Justice Shiva Kirti Singh and Justice Vikram Nath, hearing a PIL, on Wednesday observed that ‘the duty of teachers and principals of schools is to teach the students and not to supervise the cooking of meals’. The Public Interest Litigation was filed by Meerut-based UP Pradhanacharya Parishad.
