Rewari school girls protest again, demand adequate teachers


Rewari (Haryana), July 25: The girls' students of Gothda Tappa Dahina today began another protest, a couple of months after their hunger-strike forced the Haryana government to upgrade their village school to senior secondary level.

The reason: merely upgrading the school is not enough, the government should post an adequate number of teachers as well.

After school upgradation, now Rewari girls protest for more teachers

Earlier, in May, the girls of Gothda Tappa Dahina village had forced the state government to cut the red tape and accept their demand of upgrading the village school to a senior secondary school.

The girls had feared harassment if they were to travel to another village to pursue higher education. However, even after the school was upgraded, the girls have decided to agitate again.

"The school has been upgraded, but there is an acute shortage of teachers. We want that adequate number of teachers should be posted," a protesting student told reporters today.

The girls locked the school gate and sat outside in protest.

Rewaris District Education Officer Dharmbir said that they were looking into the issue.

The police also arrived at the school complex when they were learnt about the protest.

During the previous protest in May, the condition of a few girls, who were on fast, had worsened after which they had to be hospitalized. They had then demanded that the school is upgraded from class X to class XII stating that they were harassed by youth on motorcycles on the way to the school in the neighboring village which was 3 km away.
