Recently, Bihar arts topper Ruby Rai trolled over pronouncing ‘Political Science’ properly, and then the reports of Class X students from Gujarat scoring over 80 percent marks in Mathematics couldn’t even answer a basic question.
While we are talking about the students, here comes the report of two UP teachers. Two teachers were evaluating answer sheets of BA English, History and Economics at the Institute of Tourism and Hotel Management (ITHM) in Agra.
Doubting over their credentials, the evaluation coordinator at the centre grilled these two teachers. Although both the teachers have valid degrees and they teach in different colleges, they failed in answering easy questions.
Shyam Bahadur is an associate professor in English and is working at Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Rohilkhand University in Bareilly, while Anil Kumar Pal, associate professor in Economics, is working at Veer Bahadur Singh Purvanchal University in Jaunpur.
“The English teacher used wrong grammar while writing a two-line application letter seeking permission for evaluating papers. And he spelled evaluation as ‘evalluation’. Shyam Bahadur also failed to answer basic questions about the subject,” evaluation coordinator and ITHM director Luvkush Mishra told The Times of India.
Pal was asked to explain meaning of ‘audit’, which he didn’t know. Later he asked the full form of ‘IMF’ for which he answered ‘International Money Found’ (International Monetary Fund).
Both the teachers have extensive teaching experience, however they have been blacklisted now.
