Crushing Fail: A teacher’s obsession with Candy Crush ends in his suspension!

Addiction to the mobile game Candy Crush cost a public school teacher his job.

The teacher has been suspended for playing Candy Crush on his phone and talking on the device during work hours.

The incident came to light when district magistrate Rajendra Pansiya went to the school to conduct a random check and found dozens of errors in the students’ copies, from the first page to the last.

Later, a feature on the teacher’s phone that tracked hours spent on apps revealed he was spending nearly two hours playing Candy Crush during school hours.

“Teachers should focus on monitoring classwork and homework of students and ensure that they receive quality education. Also, the use of mobile phones is not a problem, but their use for personal purposes during school hours is not right,” the district magistrate told reporters.

Pansiya reviewed six pages of six students’ copies and found 95 errors, nine of them on the first page.

He expressed his displeasure over this and checked the phone of Assistant Professor Priyam Goyal.

The Digital Wellbeing feature on the teacher’s phone revealed that out of the five-and-a-half hours of class, Priyam Goyal spent almost two hours playing Candy Crush, talked on the phone for 26 minutes and used social media apps for almost 30 minutes.

The district magistrate reported the matter to the state education department, which took cognizance of the matter and suspended the teaching assistant.
