  1. Is being teacher a crime?Will teacher be not paid enough? My dad is science teacher he teaches in class 9 -10.But he advised me teacher is far worst job. He is not even getting his salary in lockdown.My motivation of being teacher is completely down after this words from my own dad.

  2. I hope that government schools have been paying full salaries, in bulk amounts every 3-4 months, though the teachers have not fully responded to learning needs of pupils because of the pandemic.
