Tidy up schools, else face suspension: AAP govt
The Delhi government on Monday set December 10 as the deadline to ensure cleanliness in schools, failing which it said it would ‘suspend’ officials from services. It said it was a “sin” to make children sit in dirty classrooms.
Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio said school management committee (SMC) teams and senior officers of the department will begin inspections of schools across the national Capital after the deadline in this regard. The education department has directed the schools to file an Action Taken Report (ATR) on the status of cleanliness and hygiene in their respective campuses by December 9. Action against defaulters may include suspension from service and initiation of departmental proceedings as per rules, the government said. “The government is of the view that it is no less than a sin to force children to sit in dirty classes and complacently watch them playing in unclean grounds where there is filth and rubbish,” a statement said.
