BANGALORE: Teachers in the Government Urdu Higher Primary School at D J Halli, were taken aback when Commissioner for Public Instruction Mohammed Mohsin made a surprise visit on Monday. Hundreds of children fell sick after consuming a mid-day meal at the school last week.

The teachers were asked to improve infrastructure and maintain cleanliness and hygiene in the school. Mohsin noticed the pathetic condition of the toilets and also a poor learning environment for children, with a high pupil-teacher ratio. Infrastructural problems, as the campus houses two primary schools, a high school, a college and two anganwadis, also came to his notice. 

Mohsin has asked the police to provide security to the school after he found that there were no measures in place to keep children safe. He also turned a teacher as he walked into classrooms and asked subject-related questions to students. “I was not happy with the answers. I found a lot of absenteeism, which I suppose is the reason for such poor levels of learning,” he said.
