Many educationists have negative thoughts about this decision as age factor cannot determine whether one can harass a girl or not plus the chances of young male teachers being employed in schools had also decreased.
According to the education minister of Haryana, Ram Bilas Sharma, “Any teacher who has not completed 50 years as on June 30, should not opt for girls’ school. Even if any teacher opts for it, he would not be considered for transfer.”
He also said that teachers will have to submit their choice of schools online for transfer from this academic session onwards.
