AAP government to fire guest teachers:
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who is also the education minister, expressed displeasure against the guest teachers citing, “regardless of getting benefits from the government, they have protest against the CM”.
The AAP government, in a fitting response, has changed its stand on an appointment of guest teachers wherein the government used to allow the already existing academic professionals to continue for the past two years.
“Government will invite fresh applications for guest teachers from March and hire them on merit,” an official said adding, “Despite the fact that the AAP dispensation is doing ”so much” for them, teachers are doing ”politics” which will not be tolerated.”
