On the Teacher’s Day, you read in a newspaper that privately owned and managed schools in snail towns or even in the suburbs of metropolitan cities exploit their teachers by paying them just a fraction of their authorised salaries. This affects their performance in the classroom and thus the lives of their students. Write a letter in 120-150 words to the editor of a national daily raising your voice against such exploitation. Suggest ways to solve this problem. You are Navtej/Navita, 112 Road, Agra.

Subject: Exploitation of teachers in private schools
I would like to draw the attention of the authorities concerned with the exploitation of teachers in private institutes.
Being a school teacher is not easy in the capital. From being a temple of learning, these institutions are fast turning into profit-making enterprises. Despite the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission, teachers are often forced into accepting meagre salaries. Their poor working conditions affect the quality of teaching.
This serious issue needs urgent attention of the authorities concerned.
