HYDERABAD: A private school teacher allegedly cut the braid of a class IV girl student in St Stephens High School in in Ranga Reddy district on Tuesday because she was not wearing black ribbons as per the school dress code. The girl had worn blue ribbons.
“This is second such incident in a month where a girl was punished for not tying her hair as per school dress code. We do not understand why schools are imposing a dress code on students and punishing them for not following it,” Achyuta Rao, honorary president, Balala Hakkula Sangham, said.

Just last month a video went viral showing a government school teacher getting a head massage inside her classroom. In another incident on June 21, a class IV student of Oxfored Grammar School in Himayatnagar was allegedly thrashed by a teacher for not tying her hair properly.
