Haryana: In a recent development, the education department in BJP-led Haryana has supposedly barred the school teachers from wearing jeans at work. Reports are that the order has been issued only to the teachers of elementary and middle school.
As per reports of a leading daily, the reason why the teachers have been asked to not wear jeans has not been mentioned in the order, however they have been asked to wear formal clothes so as to set an example for the students.
Talking on the same an education official said, “Teachers ask students to maintain discipline, including wearing school uniforms. They themselves should wear formal attire to set an example.”
As per the order, the teachers have also been asked not to visit the Directorate of Education in Chandigarh in jeans.
PK Das, Additional Chief Secretary, School Education Department, in his statement to a daily said, “Besides banning jeans, we will ensure they do not come in flashy clothes, such as a red shirt or a loud printed one. Also, all the shirt buttons should be fastened,” he said. The orders would be applicable for teachers in secondary schools too.”
However, Haryana CM denied any such claims saying that no such has been issued.
