School teachers in one of the Telangana government schools, which is located in Shankarampet Mandal of Medak, come to the school wearing the headgear in order to protect themselves from the crumbling school building. The teachers in the school alleged that even after sending repeated reminders to the authorities regarding the condition of the school, they failed to take any step let alone carry out the repairs.
"We are taking classes wearing the headgear to protect ourselves in case of any emergency due to the dilapidated structure," one of teachers said.
Bharti Hollikeri, district collector of the Medak district said that the district education officer and other officials are working on a plan to shift the school to the new building.
"The matter was brought to my notice yesterday. Yes, it is an old building. Engineers have been asked to inspect whether it requires demolition or repairs and based on their report, we will get the students shifted," the collector told PTI over the phone.
She said that they have already written to the Directorate of School Education and proposals have been sent regarding renovating the new building and adding new classrooms to the existing building.
