MUM­BAI: Stu­dents and teach­ers in Mum­bai schools were shocked to find pho­tos of ed­u­ca­tion min­is­ter Vinod Tawde pub­lished on the Class 10 ap­ti­tude test re­ports given to them on Wed­nes­day.

The re­ports car­ry­ing the re­sults of the first-ever ap­ti­tude test — assess­ing stu­dents’ skills and in­ter­ests — were given to stu­dents along with the Sec­ondary School Cer­tifi­cate (SSC) exam mark sheets.

The min­is­ter’s pic­ture is jux­ta­posed next to some text ex­plain­ing why the test was con­ducted for the first time in Ma­ha­rash­tra along with a con­grat­u­la­tory mes­sage from the min­is­ter. More than 15 lakh stu­dents from the state took the test in Fe­bru­ary.

Aca­demi­cians called it a tacky move to pub­lish a politi­cian’s im­age on a doc­u­ment meant for aca­demic record. CON­TIN­UED ON P10
