Kerala Child Rights Panel said that there is no gender discrimination in teachers. A bench of panel chairpersons KV Manoj Kumar and C Vijayakumar directed the General Education Department to direct all schools to address everyone in the school as teacher, not sir or madam. The commission said that by calling teachers instead of sir or madam, we can promote equality among children in school. This will increase everyone’s attachment towards the teachers.
It is worth noting that in 2021 also a similar decision was taken by the local Gram Panchayat in Kerala. This decision was taken to eliminate the hindrance among the common people. The Mathur Gram Panchayat of Kerala became the first Gram Panchayat in the country where the ban on saying Sir or Madam was imposed. By taking such a decision, an attempt has been made to eliminate gender discrimination in the Gram Panchayat.
Mathur Panchayat Vice President PR Prasad said that rising above politics, everyone in our Panchayat welcomed this decision to create a good and friendly environment in the office. We all feel that calling sir or madam increases the distance. Now instead of sir or madam, people call everyone as teacher.
