If this is a ‘minor incident’, I hate to see what a major one looks like:
A teacher of a co-ed government school in Gaighata in North 24-Parganas took off the leggings of a 13-year-old girl in the classroom on Wednesday because she was not in proper uniform. The girl wept and pleaded but the teacher allegedly did not return it even after school was over, forcing her to walk home in a semi-clad state.
Headmaster Swapan Bala dismissed it as a “minor incident”. “We came to know of it only a day later. It is not a serious matter. Some people are unnecessarily making an issue out of it. The teacher has apologized. We shall take a final decision on Friday,” Bala said on Thursday.
If the Principal and teacher were stripped of their clothing in public, would that be a ‘minor incident’ too? (I am not advocating this of course, I am just trying to make a point!)
