The orders regarding this were issued recently by the state education directorate, keeping in view several complaints of smoking and consumption of tobacco in school premises against the teachers. Moreover, tobacco products are been banned in the state, Rajasthan.
A senior education department officer told IANS that "There were complaints of teachers even spewing on the walls in classrooms while chewing tobacco. They ask the students to go out of the school, leaving classes and get them tobacco pouches from the market. It not only wastes their time but also has a bad impact on them. They get attracted and become a victim of smoking and consuming tobacco".
The o0fficer further said that a student or his/her family members can complaint at the respective district education office against the teacher who violates these rules and regulations. The local residents and public representatives will also be able to make such complaints with the DEO- District Education Officer too, he added.
He said further, "The complaint will be verified and the teacher will be transferred. And if further complaints are received against the same teacher then, he shall be suspended". The director has also asked the school administration to put up notice boards with the warning against Smoking and Tobacco consumption.
Well, it is an most important step taken up by the officials, by banning these products in the State-Rajasthan. But, still it is a worse news that teachers make use of children to serve them these products. Teachers must always show the right path to children, instead here the teachers have been leading the wrong way.
However, Good that Rajasthan has come forward and banned such products in the complete 'State'. But, stopping it just in one state!! is it enough? Will it bring positive results all over the country? What about other states in India? When is it getting banned all over the World? What do you think? Share your views now.
