The authorities of a school in Pirojpur decided not to allow any politics in the educational institution yesterday, two days after a Chhatra League leader of the school beat up one of the teachers at his home. The managing committee of Sreeramkathi UJK High School in Nazirpur made the decision in a meeting with local union parishad chairman and other influential people. Last week, five boys, led by class-X student Shah Amanat Shanto, president of Chhatra League in the school, assaulted Assistant Teacher Santosh Dewry while he was giving accounting tuition to some students at his home in Sreeramkathi, said locals and other teachers of the school.
