Bihar Teacher Faces Action for Making Reels During Exam Evaluation

Patna, Bihar – May 29, 2024 – A teacher in Bihar is facing disciplinary action and a police complaint after social media videos showed her creating Instagram Reels while evaluating answer sheets for exams conducted by Patliputra University (PPU).

The viral footage has sparked outrage online, raising concerns about the integrity of the grading process. The videos depict the teacher in a classroom setting, seemingly focused on making Reels rather than diligently reviewing student responses.

The exposed answer sheets in the videos revealed student roll numbers, further amplifying concerns. Social media platform X witnessed a rapid spread of the videos, with users expressing anger towards the teacher’s actions.

One user commented, questioning the teacher’s attention: “Did that Medam [Madam] Read what is Written on that copy [answer sheet]?”

Another user expressed concern for the impacted student: “The boy whose copy this is would have got just average marks, your copy was used to make a reel. If possible, you should also turn your career towards reel, because now you will not get enough marks to get admission in top universities.”

A third user criticized the lack of proper evaluation: “It is clearly visible that she is not even looking at the copy properly… she is quickly moving ahead, she does not care whether what is written is right or wrong.”

Following the online uproar, a First Information Report (FIR) has been filed against the teacher. The university is likely to take disciplinary action as well. This incident highlights the potential consequences of neglecting professional responsibilities in favor of social media pursuits.
