Yogi Adiyanath government seems to be creating news as a routine. After forming anti - Romeo squad to scold erring teenagers, the government now has issued orders regarding the dress code of teaches. According to new direction, teachers of government-run secondary schools across the state will not be allowed to wear T-shirts or jeans during work hours.
District inspector of schools (DIoS) Umesh Tripathi told Hindustan Times that teachers should wear dresses suiting the dignity of their profession.
“Teachers should avoid such clothes which compromise the dignity of the profession,” Tripathi said.
He added that the government will conduct higher level discussions on the matter.

According to him, it is the duty of teachers to make sure that the school premises are neat and no pan or pan masala stains are there inside schools.
Prayers will be made a must in schools and teachers will not be allowed to use mobile phones during the work hours.
Shops selling pan or pan masala located nearby schools will be removed.
The government authorities also made it clear that it is the duty of school administration to shut down such shops if they found any.
Last year, Haryana government had directed school teachers to not wear jeans while on work.
In 2012, Haryana’s Women and Child Development Department (WCDD) had given a directive to its women teachers to wear salwar kameez or sarees only during work hours. The decision was later withdrawn after facing severe backlash.
