A teacher of reputed school said “ our school management has called us to come to school till the last working day of this month. We have no choice but to follow their instructions. The school management has even not released our Covid time pending salaries whereas they have collected it from the students. In this case no teacher is ready to ask school management to not to defy govt orders.”

Another teacher said “ its not a rocket science to check the presence of teachers in the school. The authorities can come and check the attendance register, CCTV footage, parking areas, if they really want. But, the administration calls the principal and they simply convey that no teachers are called and befooled the administration. Moreover these are reputed schools and management have links in political, administrative circles. So the administration avoids to take strict action against them.  ”
