Hyderabad: The headmaster of a government high school in Ranga Reddy district may lose his job for making students do odd jobs around the school. School management committee chairman N. Sudershan, in his petition to Balala Hakkula Sangham, stated that K. Kistaiah, the headmaster of Shivarampally ZP High School, was making students do jobs like cleaning water tanks and digging pits in the school. He also asked them to dismantle an old compound wall and shift the bricks and other building material to his house.

Mr. Sudershan said: “Though there are private people employed for this work, he is forcing students to do this. Despite many requests to stop, he did not change and the complaint to district and mandal education officers also fell on deaf ears.” The Balala Hakkula Sangham demanded the immediate suspension of the headmaster and wanted a criminal case against him for child labour under the provisions of the Child Labour Prohibition Act.

 

The Sangham also sought an explanation from officials on why action had not been initiated against the headmaster despite complaints.The headmaster was not available to comment on the issue.
