Assam govt issues dress code for school teachers
The Assam government has recently implemented a dress code for school teachers, aiming to address concerns about inappropriate attire. According to a notification issued on Friday, teachers are now required to adhere to a formal dress code, avoiding party and casual clothing and opting for sober colors. Education Minister Ranoj Pegu took to Twitter on Saturday to share the order, clarifying any doubts surrounding the prescribed dress code.
The notification emphasized the importance of teachers serving as role models of decency, especially while carrying out their professional responsibilities. Consequently, a dress code reflecting decorum, decency, professionalism, and a sense of purpose at the workplace has been deemed necessary. The approved apparel for male teachers is a formal shirt-pant, while female teachers are expected to wear "decent salwar suit/saree/mekhela-chador" rather than casual attire like T-shirts, jeans, or leggings.
Both male and female teachers are required to wear clean, modest, and decent clothes in sober colors, avoiding flashy or extravagant outfits. The use of casual and party apparel is strictly prohibited under the new guidelines. In the meantime, the Assam SEBA has released the class 10 result for 2023 on May 22. Out of the total number of students who took the exam, 72.69% have successfully cleared it. Of the 190,765 male candidates, 142,524 have passed, resulting in a pass percentage of 74.71%. Among the 228,140 female candidates, 159,356 have passed, yielding an overall pass percentage of 70.96% for girls.
