Teachers At These Government Schools In Madhya Pradesh Show Up Drunk

Bhopal: A review study discloses that at least 15 teachers were discovered to regularly show up to class intoxicated at different government schools in a Madhya Pradesh district, exposing the state’s broken educational system.


A letter from the Block Education Officer (BEO) in Mehadwani, in the tribal-dominated Dindori region, almost 460 miles from the capital Bhopal, revealed the devastating fact.

According to a letter from BEO HS Masram, fifteen instructors from different government schools in the Mehadwani development block often show up to work while intoxicated.

“The teacher occasionally shows up. He never drinks. A kid in Class 8 stated, “There are moments when we read and he disappears.

One of the drunk teachers, Santosh Kumar Ahirwar, is seen below.

“He (teacher) stays for an hour or two and then leaves. He repeats this everyday,” said another student form the same school.

Additionally, it has been reported that nine teachers have not been attending school for several years, and seven teachers are in violation of civil service rules due to having two wives.

“He comes drunk to school every day. His name is Santosh Kumar Ahirwar. He teaches Maths. We tried stopping him from leaving, but he got away. It is his daily routine. He also comes in late and leaves early.  This affects children’s studies,” said a teacher at the school.

Mr Masram has recommended strict action against these teachers.

Dr Santosh Shukla, the Assistant Commissioner of the Tribal Department in Dindori, appreciated Mr Masram’s initiative during a conversation with NDTV and assured that appropriate action would be taken against the accused teachers.

Similar investigations will be carried out in all development blocks to enhance the educational program in the district’s government schools, Dr. Shukla stated, adding that harsh action would be taken against any teacher found to be in violation of professional conduct.

The goal of several government programs, including Eklavya Adarsh Residential Schools, School Chalen Hum, Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, and CM Rise, is to raise the standard of education in the Dindori area.
