Rajasthan teachers angry over government order

JAIPUR: In Rajasthan, the state education department and government teachers are entangled over De-worm, the world initiative’ program based upon collecting stool samples of school students to assess the impact of DE-worming initiatives.

Teacher associations are protesting over a circular issued by department directing government teachers to support in the survey led by the NGO ‘Evidence action’. However, the teachers are protesting saying that they will not help in the collection of stool samples from homes of kids as this work is of health department officials and not teachers.

State education minister Govind Singh Dotasra in his response on Monday said that the order has been misinterpreted by the teachers’ association.
