Gujrat Education Board

"The Gujarat government has made it mandatory for vidya sahayaks (teaching assistants) to wear sarees at work. A new list of 14 "must dos" for vidya sahayaks makes saree compulsory for women. Pant-shirt or kurta-pyjama have been made mandatory for men.

This latest set of rules was handed out along with the appointment letters to more than 6,500 newly appointed vidya sahayaks on August 23. Anganwadi workers can wear sarees or salwar kameez, which have to be in pink and black prints. Male teachers have to avoid T-shirts or jeans on duty. The District Education Officer (DEO) and District Primary Education Officer (DPEO) have been authorised to terminate the services of a vidya sahayak who does not comply with any of these rules.

Other rules include general instructions about regular attendance, compliance of principal's orders, ensuring regular attendance of students, encouraging them to participate in extra curricular activities and participating in teachers' training activities from time to time. "A teacher is a role model for students. A role model should be decently attired. A saree is apt for a teacher," said District Primary Education Officer (DPEO) M M Jani."

How this will help

શું આને કહીશું સ્ત્રી સ્વાતંત્ર્ય ? શું સાડી સિવાય કોઈ પણ પોશાક ને સભ્ય ન કહી શકાય ? અને એ નિર્ણય સ્ત્રી જાતે લેવા સક્ષમ નથી ? હું આવા વટહુકમ સાથે સહમત નથી. તમે શું કહો છો ? તમારા વિચારો જણાવો......

Is it what you call equality ? freedom of expression ? Is there no other dress as dignified as saree ? Can't a woman take her own decision on what to wear ? I DO NOT AGREE. Please share your thoughts. They can bring Change.
