After the teacher failed to read, the District Magistrate told officials present there:
She should be suspended immediately. She is a teacher and can’t even read, she can’t read English,”
The teacher tries to clarify but was interrupted.
So what, you are a graduate. I didn’t ask you the meaning, anything. I didn’t ask you to translate this, I just asked you to read.
Twitter was disappointed with the teacher's performance as well as how the situation was handled by the District Magistrate:

Imagine the plight of students in such schools.
We talk of demographic dividend.
That's why our education system is so poor and private schools are changing high fees.— Sudeep Sagar Uppal 🇮🇳 (@ssagaruppal) November 30, 2019
Because of these kind of teachers there is unemployment in country.

Who is to be blamed here? Certainly not the teacher, who appointed her? Who trained her? Who passed her through teacher training courses? How old is our teacher training process?— Rahul Jain (@Rahuljain094) November 30, 2019
