Delhi Class 7 Student Hangs Herself, Writes Teacher’s Name On Palm

Class 7 student hanged herself at her home in West Delhi.

New Delhi: 

A Class 7 student allegedly committed suicide in West Delhi on Saturday, when her mother was away at work. She had scribbled her teacher’s name on her hands and a note that she did not want to go to school anymore.

“Lord Krishna, I am coming,” said one message on her palm. In another, she wrote for her mother: “I love you”.

A suicide note has also been found, the police said.

The 12 year-old girl was found hanging from the ceiling fan at her home.

“On her palms and hands she wrote that she did not want to go to school any more. She apologised to her mother and grandmother and said she was going to meet Lord Krishna,” senior police officer Madhup Tiwari told news agency IANS.

The girl’s mother, a lawyer, last saw her alive when she was leaving for the Tis Hazari Court. She said the girl had refused to go to school.

When she returned at 4 PM, she found her daughter’s body.

“My daughter complained that the teacher scolded her every day. The same teacher rebuked and humiliated her on Friday for 10 minutes in the biology lab. She cried in the school bathroom after the episode,” her mother told news agency IANS.

“She had been insisting that I change her school but I did not know how serious the situation was. I would never imagine she would commit suicide,” the mother said, sobbing.

The school management said in a statement said it was fully cooperating with the police and was also carrying out an internal inquiry.

“As of now we are not at liberty to disclose any details which may jeopardise the police investigation of the case,” the statement said.

The police are waiting for the girl’s autopsy report and say they are speaking to her classmates.

A teacher in Gorakhpur has sent out his wedding reception invites with messages and logo of ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ campaign to spread awareness on the issue of educating girl child.

Mohammad Aqueel, 30, says he wanted to show his support to the campaign launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi by this novel gesture.

The groom, who is an assistant teacher in Maulana Azad Inter-college in Sant Kabeernagar, has distributed over 300 invitation cards among relatives, friends and locals and expressed the hope that it will help spread the message of educating girl child .

“People select fancy wedding invitation cards these days with unnecessary messages to make them more appealing. I thought of spreading awareness on the save girl child campaign with my wedding card. I believe in Prime Minister Modi’s campaign and fully support it,” said Mr Aqueel.

“Although Islam stresses on gaining knowledge but due to illiteracy in Muslim society, girls get less chances to get education and I thought that the message will be easily spread with no extra effort,” he said.

A resident of Bharpahi Village in Gorakhpur, Aqueel is getting married to Naheed, who lives in Santkabeernagar and is the daughter of a former railway employee. The wedding reception (Walima) is scheduled to be held on November 18 in Gorakhpur’s Barpahi village under Sahjanwa block.

The bride could not be contacted but the family members of the groom said that she supports Aqueel’s efforts to spread awareness on educating girl child as she is a post-graduate and wants to become a teacher.

Punjab Teachers Observe Black Diwali Over Government Decision On Salary

Teachers in Punjab today observed a “black” Diwali and held protests at several places across the state over the government’s refusal to regularise their jobs without pay cut.

Donning black dresses and carrying placards, the teachers took out protest marches in Bathinda, Patiala, Ludhiana, Gurdaspur, Hoshiarpur, Amritsar, Mohali, Faridkot and Jalandhar.

The teachers are against the state government’s decision to fix their monthly salary at Rs 15,000 during three years of probation period for regularisation of their services. They are demanding regularisation with full pay.

At present, contractual teachers in the state are getting Rs 42,300 per month.

Shouting slogans against the Congress-led Punjab government, the teachers also blocked roads at a few places.

In Patiala, teachers clashed with the police when they were going towards the residence of Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. They were stopped at barricades installed near the house.

“We will continue with our stir till our demands are not met,” said Sanjha Adhyapak Morcha’s state committee member Bikramjit Singh.

The contractual teachers, under the banner of the Sanjha Adhyapak Morcha, have been holding a sit-in at Patiala, the chief minister’s constituency, in support of their demands since October 7.

Amarinder Singh Transfers Punjab Teachers Who Allegedly Stripped Girls For Sanitary Pad

A video clip showed some girls crying and complaining that teachers stripped them (Representational)


Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday directed to transfer the teachers of a government school in state’s Fazilka district, who were accused of allegedly stripping girl students after the discovery of a sanitary pad in the school’s toilet.

The Punjab chief minister has ordered the state Education Department Secretary, Krishan Kumar to initiate an inquiry into the incident.

The Chief Minister directed Mr Kumar to complete the investigation by Monday and take necessary action.

The teachers were reportedly trying to find out which of the girls were wearing a sanitary pad. A video clip showed some girls crying and complaining that teachers stripped them on the premises of their school in Kundal village three days back.

The chief minister initiated action after he was informed that instead of educating the girls about proper disposal of the pads, the teachers decided to strip them.

Further disciplinary action, as per conduct rules, will be taken once the formal report is received, an official spokesperson of the Punjab government said, adding that the Chief Minister had asked Mr Kumar to personally update him with the final inquiry report.

On Halloween, Teachers Dressed Us As ‘Mexicans’ And The Wall. It Didn’t Go Well

The school did not identify the staff members who wore the costumes on Halloween.

An Idaho superintendent has issued a public apology to students and their parents after staff at a public elementary school dressed up as Mexicans and the border wall for Halloween.

The images began circulating on social media this week, and they depict more than a dozen adults dressed up in two groups at Middleton Heights Elementary School, a town of about 7,500 located 30 miles west of Boise. One group is dressed up as stereotypes of Mexicans, replete with maracas, ponchos, sombreros and fake mustaches. The other group is dressed as a wall plastered with the slogan “Make America Great Again.”

“I want to say we are better than this,” Superintendent Josh Middleton said in a Facebook video Friday. “We embrace all students. We have a responsibility to teach and reach all students period. Do i think that there was a malicious intent in this poor decision? No, I don’t. Was there a poor judgement involved? Absolutely. And we now have to own those decisions.”

The story quickly took off on Friday evening, drawing coverage in national news media outlets. Angry reactions flooded the school’s Facebook page. And social media responses were harsh.

“The fact that these elementary school teachers thought this would be OK demonstrates how much more cultural competence training is needed in education,” Kevin Nadal, a psychology professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, wrote on Twitter.

Middleton said that he had been alerted to the issue by a parent who expressed concern over the costumes and that he has since opened a district investigation into the matter.

“I was shown those photos and deeply troubled by the decision by our staff members to wear those costumes that are clearly insensitive and inappropriate,” he said. “Right now our time is going to be devoted to investigating those events and those poor decisions that were made.”

According to the Idaho Statesman, the photos were originally posted on the Middleton School District’s Facebook page with a caption reading, “It was a great day to be a Heights Hawk! We celebrated our RESPECT character winners, single and double marathon runners.”

The Halloween incident is another data entry in the long list of controversial, racially insensitive or historically ignorant costumes that inevitably get trotted out every year. But this incident also struck at the heart of an emotional political debate over immigration that has only grown more bitter in recent days in the lead-up to Tuesday’s elections, as President Donald Trump has warned of an immigrant “invasion” and released a misleading ad about immigrants that was widely criticized as racist.

Twelve advocacy organizations including the ACLU’s chapter in the state, sent a letter to the district expressing concern about the costumes, the Statesman reported.

“Regardless of the intent of a teacher’s actions in the classroom, we must focus on and give weight to the impact of such actions on the students who rely on teachers and other school officials for guidance and support throughout their educational experience,” the ACLU of Idaho said in a statement. “School districts, their staff and other agents have obligations under federal law, state law, and district policies to prevent and protect students, staff, and others from discrimination, bullying, intimidation, and harassment.”

The Idaho Commission of Human Rights, a state governing body, also weighed in on Friday night.

“Discrimination under these acts can occur when an employer or school allows a hostile environment to exist against persons because of their race, sex and national origin,” the commission said in a statement, according to the Idaho Press. “Simply because conduct takes place as a so-called joke does not excuse otherwise unlawful conduct.”

The school did not identify the staff members who wore the costumes.

About 13 percent of the students at the elementary school are Latino, according to data from Idaho Ed Trends.

Court Orders CBI Probe In Mega UP Teachers’ Hiring, Cancels Earlier One


The Allahabad High Court Thursday quashed the selection of over 12,000 teachers by the Uttar Pradesh government through an exam advertised in 2016 and directed the CBI to investigate another recruitment exercise begun earlier this year to fill 68,500 posts.

While the 12,460 assistant teachers were selected during the term of the Akhilesh Yadav government, the second order asking the CBI to step in is a major embarrassment for the Yogi Adityanath government.

Allegations of corruption have already stalled the filling of 68,500 posts in primary schools through the Assistant Teachers Recruitment Examination, 2018.

The exercise, which began with an advertisement on January 23, 2018, was meant to be the first major recruitment by the state’s basic education department after the new the BJP came into power.

The Lucknow bench of the court directed the Central Bureau of Investigation to complete the probe within six months and submit a progress report to it on November 26.

The state’s Advocate General Raghvendra Singh had earlier said the UP government was not ready for a CBI inquiry, compelling the court to pass the order on its own.

Issuing directions on a bunch of writ petitions, Justice Irshad Ali directed that the officers who were part of the 2018 selection process would cooperate in the investigation and make available all the necessary documents required by the CBI.

The petitioners had made serious allegations related to this year’s exam, including the charge that answer books were switched.

 Justice Ali said the court is prima facie satisfied that there is material evidence to establish that the examination authorities misused their power to give undue advantage to the candidates of their choice.

 In the other case, the same bench found that the 12,460 assistant teachers were selected without following the Uttar Pradesh Basic Education (Teachers) Service Rules, 1981.

 The selected candidates were not given appointment letters after the court put the process on hold.

 The court directed that the selection process should begin afresh in 2016 case. It should be completed within three months, it said.

Teachers In Punjab Unhappy With New Stubble-Burning Awareness Duties

Government teachers Punjab’s Gurdaspur district have demanded withdrawal of an order which has directed them to participate in creating awareness against stubble-burning. 

The teachers, who have been appointed as nodal officers by the Gurdaspur district administration in their drive against crop residue burning, have sought withdrawal of the order, claiming they have been assigned villages which are “located at far off areas” and that the duties were clashing with their teaching schedule.

 Harjinder Singh, general secretary of Gurdaspur Democratic Teachers Front, on Wednesday said, “The teachers have been appointed as nodal officers by the Gurdaspur administration to check stubble burning in villages. But it is not our (teachers) duty to stop crop residue burning.”

Mr Singh claimed some teachers had been assigned villages which were 50 km to 60 km away from their respective schools and homes. “We (teachers) will have to travel about 60 km every day after school hours to perform the job of nodal officers, which is not feasible,” he added.

Some teachers have expressed unwillingness to take part in the drive saying they may “face the wrath of farmers” on the issue.

The Gurdaspur district administration had appointed 150 teachers as nodal officers for creating awareness among farmers on the ill-effects of stubbleburning, officials said, adding that each teacher had been assigned one village.

Earlier, the Punjab government had appointed nodal officers in 8,000 paddy growing villages in the state to spread awareness on the ills of stubble burning.

These nodal officers had been tasked to reach out to village schools for organising rallies and awareness lectures to sensitise students, so that they could prevail on their parents and stop them from burning crop residue.

The secretaries of cooperative societies, panchayat secretaries of rural development, junior engineers, linemen, sub-division officers of PSPCL, officers of the departments of agriculture, horticulture and soil conservation had been engaged for this purpose.
