In India, the education system is one wrought with strife for students, parents, and even teachers at times. While we have seen instances of school murders, we are also privy to the incidents of teachers harassing students inside classrooms; Classrooms that are supposed to be safe havens for children eager to earn their future.
Therefore, it’s time for an overhaul of the system. Because without it, such instances will become more rampant.
The most recent incident that has come to light involves an Ethics professor at an Engineering College in Bengaluru who reportedly lost his marbles and took his anger out on a student.
Originally posted on a Reddit thread, the video is allegedly from People’s Education Society Institute of Technology (PESIT). While the reason remains unclear as to why the teacher lost his cool, it is claimed that he lashed out after two students created disturbance in his class.
The scuffle turned ugly when the professor humiliated his pupils in front of the class and smashed one of the student’s new phone. This, even after the student pleaded and apologised for his alleged misbehaviour.
People came out in full support of the students and shared the following opinions,
While one said, “I’m not a student in that college; a friend told me about this. Although I hope the lecturer gets pasted for this”, another added, “Hope the student has lodged an FIR. A teacher can tell the student to leave the class, he has no right to vandalise personal properties.”
It’s appalling the way teachers behave in schools and colleges these days. Teachers like this professor are a disgrace to the respected system. If this incident is proven legit and the professor guilty, he should be punished for his ‘misbehaviour’.
