In my opinion both Som and Biku are right in their respective point of views. Since, Govt. has not extended the Child Care Leave to the School Teachers, as of now, they are not entitled to it. So arguing over that point in this case is not proper. We should restrict our suggestions strictly within the rules and provisions of Govt. orders which are in vogue for a real case. Creating a pressure group/demanding something from employers for something, which is justified,is altogether a different ball game. We have a separate thread running for discussion of the same in our forum itself. All are welcome to add their suggestion about what is not available now to a certain section of employees and what should be logically given/extended to them in those topics. But not here, while we are to suggest something actionable to a real life problem of one person.Here we should contain ourselves strictly within the purview of Govt Orders governing his/her service conditions currently.
Having said this, I must add that the action of HM/MC of the school who made the individual pay for his/her absence is totally a mockery of our education system. On the other hand it may also be well intentioned– he/they might have taken the decision to alleviate the problem to be faced by the students in absence of a regular teacher for a fairly long time and releasing the applicant a long holiday while she is allowed to keep a sort of lien on her post. Now they are certainly not authorised to do this. The applicant is also at fault being a party to this convenient but illegal scheme. May be our system with all its lethargic attitude towards speedy decisions made them taking the plunge to bypass the rule of Law.
