‘Forced to resign’ as teacher, transwoman says she was ostracised by colleagues and abused by students
Jane Kaushik, 27, could not contain herself when she received her letter of appointment as a teacher in a private school in the Mohammadi-Kheri area of Uttar Pradesh. After scores of schools rejected her application because of her Trans identity over the past few years, one institution finally agreed to hire her and “provide an amiable working environment”. She booked her train tickets immediately.
But the moment she reported for duty with her documents at the boarding school in Lakhimpur Kheri district, she was told that the only way she could continue was if she made sure that no one in the school — neither staff nor students — found out about her transgender identity. Badly in need of a job, Ms. Kaushik agreed. “But I cannot hide my body, the way I look,” she said. Within a week, she was called to the principal’s office and “forced to resign” because some students and staff had “discovered” that she was a transwoman.
