Unnao School Viral Video: A video showing the woeful condition of standard of teaching in government schools of Uttar Pradesh has gone viral. The video shows a teacher of a school in Unnao district struggling to read Class 8 English book.

The video released by news agency ANI shows District Magistrate Devendra Kumar Pandey asking a woman teacher to read a para from a book. Furious over her inability to do so, the DM ordered the teacher’s immediate suspension.

“She should be suspended immediately. She is a teacher and can’t even read…she can’t read English,” Devendra Pandey is seen telling other officials present at the spot. The teacher tries to clarify but to no avail. “…so what…you are a graduate. I didn’t ask you the meaning anything. I didn’t ask you to translate this, I just asked you to read,” he says.
