The Surat Municipal Education Board on Wednesday decided to appoint only women teachers in all the girls' schools under it in the city. This comes in the wake of a recent incident wherein a teacher had allegedly shown an obscene clip to an 11-year-old girl at Corporation School no 277.
The teacher, Deepak Choudhary, was later arrested.
After SMEB's general meeting, education officer P B Rathod said, "We took the decision after taking all the board members into confidence that such incident of child sex abuse should not be repeated, and that women teachers should be appointed in girls schools. We are working on the number of women teachers in the municipal schools."
