Odisha: Don’t Allow Unauthorised Entry Of Journalists Inside Schools, Lodge FIRs, BEO Directs Headmasters
Dhenkanal: The Kankadahad Block Education Officer (BEO) in Odisha’s Dhenkanal district has directed school headmasters not to allow unauthorised entry of journalists inside schools and classrooms and, if they do so, to report such matters to the police.
“It is a matter of great regret that some mediapersons entered a classroom and school premises without taking permission from the authorities… This is not ethical and permissible,” the BEO wrote to the headmasters of UP and primary schools.
“If without any permission such activity is done by cameramen, mediapersons, the school headmaster should report to police and lodge FIR against the mediapersons immediately,” he said.
The move comes reportedly after a recent incident in which some students and teachers fumbled when they were interviewed by some reporters.
