Teachers At These Government Schools In Madhya Pradesh Show Up Drunk


At least 15 teachers were found coming to classes drunk on a regular basis at various government schools in a Madhya Pradesh district, reveals a review report, exposing the rot in the education system in the state.

The damning detail has been disclosed in a letter issued by the Block Education Officer (BEO) from Mehadwani in tribal-dominated Dindori district, some 460 km from capital Bhopal.

The letter, issued by BEO HS Masram, outlines that 15 teachers across various government schools in the Mehadwani development block are frequently attending school under the influence of alcohol.

“He (teacher) comes sometimes. He is always drunk. Sometimes we read and then he goes away,” said a Class 8 student.

Additionally, it has been reported that nine teachers have not been attending school for several years, and seven teachers are in violation of civil service rules due to having two wives.

“He comes drunk to school every day. His name is Santosh Kumar Ahirwar. He teaches Maths. We tried stopping him from leaving, but he got away. It is his daily routine. He also comes in late and leaves early.  This affects children’s studies,” said a teacher at the school.
