But the teachers in present era have vitiated from their path and have become greedy and arc spoiling the lives as well as career of many students. There are two reasons in doing so. First, they want to earn more money and secondly, being in gov-ernment service they have become shirker and are skipping duties. Such similar case has surfaced in Samba district where a teacher namely Lalit Gupta. who is managing his attachment in the office of
the Chief Education Officer, Samba from Last over seven years, has been awarded with ‘Best Teacher Award’. He being in CEO Office has looted lakhs of rupees and sources said that all is being done in connivance with the consent of the incumbent CEO and his predecessors. Sources said that they used to grease palms of CEOs whosoever is posted here who ignore all their misdeeds. The proof of their loot was published in the edition of Jammu Express Daily dated 19-12-2016. One gets astonished that a teacher who had not attended any school in the last more than seven years has been awarded with ‘Best Teacher Award’. What parameters do education department follow for this award? If babus do follow in this category then there are many more who will win this award in the days to come! Sources said as he uses to grease palms of CEO. He paid him back by recommending his name for this award. The job of the teacher is to teach children not to sit in the office of the CEO and one who teaches is eligible for the award many other teachers in Samba district who wished not to be unnamed rued.
