WANAPARTHY: A government school teacher was caught writing the Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) in the district on Sunday. The teacher, who flouted norms by writing the examination without informing his superiors, was reportedly taking the test to help out his wife who was appearing for the exam at the same centre.

District education officer Susheender Rao said Parandamulu, the teacher in question, worked as a school assistant at Remoddula Zilla Parishad High School (ZPHS) in Pangal mandal. Parandamulu came to write the TET at Wanaparthy ZPHS, Girls on Sunday where he was caught when Rao identified him as a government teacher.

When the DEO asked Parandamulu why he was writing the examination, the latter replied that he was attempting to update his knowledge by taking the test. But it was found that Parandamulu had written the answers on the question paper rather than on the answer sheet.

“We suspect that Parandamulu might have been intending to sneak out with the question paper and hand it over to his wife who was taking the examination at the same centre,’’ an official said. Parandamulu had also failed to inform his superiors that he was taking the examination, as is mandatory for government employees. Rao said they would initiate disciplinary action against the teacher. A police case has been registered against the teacher.
