40 Students Were Beaten By Their Teachers On School Premises

Date:

In Haryana’s Fatehabad district, 40 students were beaten with sticks as a punishment by the teachers on the school campus.

The students were beaten horribly and have succumbed to injuries all over their bodies.

The story behind:

The parents filed a police complaint against authorities of a government school in the Tohana area of Haryana’s Fatehabad district.

The protest was because at least 40 students were allegedly beaten with sticks by some teachers on Monday.

Out of the 40 students beaten to violence, ten students are admitted to the hospital to have sustained severe injuries.

The parents of the accused students filed a joint complaint against the three teachers named Mange Ram, Rajni and Charanjit Singh, stating that the mentioned teachers thrashed the students inside the school premises.

The complaint said that one of the teachers, Charanjit Singh threw off casteist slurs against two Scheduled Caste students.

The alleged teacher, Charanjit Singh, was threatening his students that he will rusticate them if any student mentioned the incident to their parents.

Charanjit Singh often threatened to ruin the student’s future by fabricating them in a case of molestation against a female teacher.

The parents are now appealing to the police to take strict measures against the teachers who committed this heinous crime.

Policies based on Corporal Punishment? Why should this form of punishment stop?

Different countries have varying laws and regulations that are formulated when it comes to corporal punishment.

In India, corporal punishment in schools, other educational sectors, day-care centres and alternative child care institutions is strictly not practised.

Prohibitions and strict laws will formulate if corporal punishment takes place at home.

The 2013 National Policy for Children states that the state ensures that no child is subjected to any physical punishment or mental harassment solely for educational purposes.

The form should be taking measures to implement and promote positive engagement to impart discipline to provide children with a good and enjoyable learning experience.

Corporal punishment is prohibited in schools under the Right to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009 (RTE Act).

Article 17 states the following measures:

(1) No child shall be subjected to physical punishment or mental harassment.

(2) Whoever contravenes or disagrees with the provisions of sub-section (1) shall be liable to disciplinary action under the service rules applicable to such person.

The 2010 Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Rules provides and ensures the implementation of the Act.

The main objective is to raise awareness about the rights in the Act along with the procedures for monitoring implementation.

The policymakers also look into the complaints mechanism when the regulating officials do not provide the rights of a child.

The Human Resources Development 2014 guidance issue states- an Advisory for Eliminating Corporal Punishment in Schools under Section 35(1) of the RTE Act 2009.

The Act’s main provisions include setting out the national law and its relevance to corporal punishment in schools.

This Act also considers the international human rights standards to promote positive child development and not resorting to corporal punishment.

The role of national bodies in implementing the RTE Act states: “This advisory should be used by the State Governments/UT Administrations to ensure that appropriate State/school level guidelines on prevention of corporate punishment.

The advisory is responsible for checking any complaints that are framed, disseminated, acted upon and monitored instead of being ignored is also an essential requirement.
