SHILLONG: BSF primary School has clarified that the allegations levelled by a teacher against the school management were not true.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the school said the teacher, Jayshree Thapa, was asked to appear for interview but she refused. On the day of the interview, she sent a letter to the principal stating ill health as the reason for not coming.
The statement also said the school extended the date of interview to accommodate her but she again refused.
A report in this newspaper had said the teacher, who served the school for 23 years, was terminated from service by the BSF authorities and they even went to the extent of filing a caveat in the lower court and the High Court fearing that the teacher would seek legal redress.
Thapa with qualification of BA/BEd from Nongmensong had earlier written to the BSF authorities in Shillong and Delhi seeking their intervention, but in vain.
The school authority said in its statement that before sending the caveat, Thapa was given termination letter which she refused to take and continued to come to the school regularly. “During this period, she was requested several times to join the school after attending the intyerview but she refused to do so,” the statement said.
“Screening of teachers is a regular procedure to improve the quality of education,” it added.
