Most teachers sounded happy though some educationalists and a Opposition Congress termed a pierce “senseless”.
Rajendra Jasooja, who teaches during Bhopal’s Subhash Excellence School, said: “The dress formula will give us some-more egoism and a clarity of responsibility. Many professions have a dress formula – doctors wear a white coat; advocates a black gown. The coupler will motivate us to liberate a duties.”
But Zameeruddin Ahmed, an educationalist, termed a dress formula a gimmick and pronounced he would have been happier if a authorities had paid some-more courtesy to stuffing teachers’ vacancies and building comforts in schools.
