my sister as well as my best friend teaches in senior classes in delhi admin govt school.so i know in and out of these schools' administration,but not in so muich detail,as she joined recently
there also,mid day meals are not cooked,rather catered daily to the school in a van.but i havent heard of tasting dun by any teacher prior to getting distributed.
about govt rules,work,etc---the biggest drawback,rather a foolish policy by govt is to make all students of 8th-10th standard pass in all exams,ie,they cant be detained.
i am not too sure of 9th and tenth standard,but i know that students upto 8th standard cant be detained.so all these students dont take studies seriously and keep wasting their time after school.girls of higher classes like 9th,10th and above are busy with their BFs after school,,because they know that however bad they perform,they will be promoted.
if any1 from the govt. dept. is reading these messages,he must take steps to change this flop rule,or else the deteriorating standard of studies in govt. schools will destroy the future of india.this country is already getting managed by those fools,who atleast had the fear of failing in schools,so they studied,though a bit.
but now the current generation has no such fear.
