Edu minister puts his photo on Class 10 aptitude test report
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
