PANJIM: The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has urged schools to ensure that the ill-effects of bad habits and need to impart good values are taught to students while teaching the chapter on tennis ace Maria Sharapova, who has been banned from playing the sport after failing a drug test.

PANJIM: The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has urged schools to ensure that the ill-effects of bad habits and need to impart good values are taught to students while teaching the chapter on tennis ace Maria Sharapova, who has been banned from playing the sport after failing a drug test.

A statement issued by the organization states that the Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education has decided to remove the lesson in the next edition of the Class IX Beehive English textbook and has instructed schools through a circular that while teaching the lesson moral values and ill-effects of taking a bad path must be stressed. “The heads of schools should be vigilant to see that these suggestions stated in the circular are being followed very strictly,” HJS State Convener Manoj Solanki said.

Following a two year ban on Sharapova by the International Tennis Federation, the HJS had demanded that GBSHSE and NCERT remove the chapter from the text books. Herald was the first to report Goa Board’s instructions to schools.
