Among the host of changes the University administration is implementing for the year 2013-2014 is a Teacher Review System (TRS), which requires students to compulsorily rate their teachers on an annual basis from 1 to 10. The least rated teacher in every college will be dismissed from their job. The guidelines issued by the office of the Vice-Chancellor direct all colleges to conduct this review right after the year-end exams.

Students across the DU campuses are excited about this initiative of the University, for a change. “It will make college like Bigg Boss’ house! I hope my college can add the provision of someone with a baritone announcing the eviction of the least rated teacher on the PA system,” says an enthusiastic first-year student. Another says, “It will be easy to trade good ratings with attendance. Long live the VC!”

We also came across scores of students who were upset they’ll have to attend college now to know their teachers’ names and faces since the review is compulsory.

There is unrest among teachers following this ruling. “It is merely a bargain the University is trying to strike with the students for the autocratic imposition of FYUP, but why are we being the bali-ka-bakra?” cries a teacher.

Meanwhile, dramatics societies of colleges have started adopting this issue for their upcoming plays. A writer from a well-known college’s dramatics society tells us, “Plays on patriarchy depicting why and how it needs to be eradicated are becoming stale, but this issue acts like a perfect replacement. It’s essentially the same thing but it’s more relevant in today’s times.”
