Cases of child beating rise in government schools

Complaints of corporal punishment — like a teacher slapping or beating a child — in government schools across India have increased by more than 271 per cent in the last three years, official data shows.A total of 144 cases have been reported from various parts of the country in the last three years, the Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) has informed Parliament.There were 28 complaints in 2014-15. The number was 12 in 2015-16. It has gone up to 104 in 2016-17.Most cases have been reported from the state of Uttar Pradesh: 25 in 2016-17 and 13 in 2014-15.While the spike raises concerns about the safety of children in schools, officials attribute it to better reporting of cases. “Children have been made aware… to report when they are beaten up or slapped by teachers. Such cases were not reported before,” said a senior government official.The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has issued guidelines to schools to ensure safety of children in schools. This has been communicated by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to schools affiliated to it.”The Board has regularly issued circulars/guidelines to its affiliated schools to curb corporal punishment and mental harassment. For corporal punishment, the Board has incorporated a provision in the affiliation by-laws to prevent cruelty towards children. Under Rule 44.1 (d) of affiliation by-laws of the Board, the school managing committee has been empowered to place an employee under suspension if he/she is charged with cruelty with any student or any employee of the school,” Minister of State for HRD Upendra Kushwaha said in a written reply in Parliament.

No sports facility is 100 govt schools

Ashutosh Kumar, a class VII student at Government Co-ed Senior Secondary School in north-west Delhi’s Rohini, wants to refine athletic skills as he aspires to win an Olympic medal for the country. However, the 12-year-old is not getting the opportunity in the absence of a working sports ground in his school.For Kumar, son of an e-rickshaw driver, enrolling in a private school with a well-equipped playground is a distant dream.”I don’t have interest in studies. I want to pursue sports as a career option. Our school doesn’t have a playground where I can practice. I asked my parents to change my school but they can’t afford it,” he said.Even as the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led Delhi government talks about creating a sports university and provide specialised training to tap sports talents, as many as 100 government schools in the Capital do not even have sports grounds, reply to an RTI filed by DNA revealed.Under the Right to Education (RTE) Act, 2009, it is mandatory to have a playground on school premises. And, in the absence of space, the schools have to make adequate arrangements in a nearby park/playground.”No such effort has been taken by the school authority even as we don’t have a sports ground,” said a faculty member at Government Boys Senior Secondary School, Mangolpuri.The Delhi government recently constructed two new swimming pools – one in Mayur Vihar Phase-2 and another in west Vinod Nagar – and a world-class hockey stadium in Boys Senior Secondary School in Ghumanhera village.”What will they do in the absence of trained teachers? 50 per cent of the sanctioned posts for Physical Education Teachers are lying vacant,” said Ajay Veer Yadav, general secretary, Government School Teachers Association and a physical education teacher at a school in Karol Bagh.As per a recent data, of the 864 sanctioned posts of post-graduate teacher (PGT) Physical Education, 636 are lying vacant. Also, among graduate teachers (TGTs), supposed to teach up to class VIII, of the 2205 sanctioned posts, 901 are lying vacant.Officials at the Directorate of Education (DoE), however, cited lack of space to construct sports grounds in these schools. However, teachers said the government should focus on arranging cluster sports grounds.”The government can make cluster grounds for two-three nearby schools. But no such efforts are being taken at their end,” Yadav added.Around 100 government schools in the capital do not even have sports grounds Of 864 sanctioned posts of post-graduate teacher (PGT) Physical Education, 636 are lying vacant in government schools. Of 2205 sanctioned posts graduate teachers (TGTs), 901 are lying vacant.

SC dismisses plea seeking one nation, one syllabus for children aged 6-14

The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a plea seeking ‘one nation and one syllabus’ for children aged 6-14 years throughout the country.A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud said that a common syllabus is not possible and dismissed the petition. Senior advocate Sajan Poovayya, appearing for primary school teacher Neeta Upadhaya, wife of BJP leader and advocate Ashwini Upadhaya, said that introduction of common education system will advance the objective behind the Right to Education (RTE) Act.To this the bench said that court can’t do this and common syllabus can’t be introduced. The petitioner had sought a direction to the Centre in spirit of the Article 21A of the Constitution and to establish “One Nation-One Education Board” system. The plea had saidthat introduction of the new system would substitute the existing multi-board system like Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) board and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).Also readGovt to track children with Aadhaar to bring down number of out of school childrenIt also sought a direction for introduction of a common textbook having chapters on the Fundamental Rights, Fundamental Duties, Directive Principles and the Great Golden Goals as set out in Preamble of the Constitution and make its study compulsory for all the children aged 6-14 years throughout the country. Upadhaya had said that Article 21A of the Constitution makes education a fundamental right of children but the executive has not introduced common education system in spirit of the provisions.The plea said that injury is caused to the children because prevailing education system does not provide equal opportunity to all the children in spirit of the Article 16 and Preamble of the Constitution, as syllabus and curriculum are very different.

Bengal BJP writes to HRD Ministry complaining about ‘anti-national’ maps in schools

In a letter written to the Union Human Resource Development (HRD) minister, the West Bengal state BJP has alleged that maps circulated recently during school examination in the state showed parts of Jammu and Kashmir as belonging to China. State BJP general secretary Raju Banerjee in his letter has alleged that the maps given to students of Class X not only showed parts J&K incorrectly, it also excluded Arunachal Pradesh from India. ‘The map has been authorized by West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE), a board now run by members nominated by Government of West Bengal and works under Department of Education. The water mark of WBBSE is evidently present in the backdrop of this anti- national map. It is informed that this map has been supplied to the schools by Teachers Cell of Trinamool Congress’, the letter read.The letter further alleges that ‘anti-national’ map was not a clerical error. ‘We feel this is a quite planned action to spread divisive idea against the integrity of the country. The young school students can be the best target to teach them wrongly(sic) about the map of the country. We, therefore appeal to you, to take up the issue with the Government of West Bengal’, the letter read.State education minister Partha Chatterjee, however, refuted the allegations and said that BJP leaders were showing maps that had been tampered with. He showed a map of the WBBSE and said it did not have any such mistakes and added that other than the watermark, all WBBSE maps have a unique code.“I have asked WBBSE to initiate a probe into it. They would get in touch with the schools concerned where the allegedly distorted maps are being circulated. The person alleging such changes will also be under the scanner of the investigation,” he said.

Girls made to clean toilets in Tamil Nadu govt school

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A new controversy has erupted over a government school in Thiruvallur district where girl students were forced to clean toilets. The event came days after four girl students committed suicide in Vellore after being scolded by teachers for poor performance.A video of a weeping girl student cleaning the toilets with a piece of cloth was widely circulated via WhatsApp. In the video, a girl student in uniform scrubbing a toilet floor can be heard asking another girl to fetch some water and pour it on the floor.After the suicide of four girl students on Friday, this is the third incident of teachers allegedly abusing the students that has come to light.The toilet-cleaning incident happened at the RM Jain Government Girls Higher Secondary School which has over 1,000 students. “The headmistress of the school has forced girls to clean the toilets with bare hands. If the students refuse to clean, they were asked to kneel down and were hit on the head. Most of the students were under severe stress because of the humiliation meted out to them by the headmistress,” N Dinesh, Thiruvallur district secretary of Students Federation of India who had complained to the district collector in this regard.The chief educational officer of the Thiruvallur district told DNA that his officials conducted an enquiry on the complaint and forwarded the report to the higher authorities to initiate action against the school. “We spoke to the girl students who appeared in the video. They told us that HM asked them to clean the toilets,” the official said.

Bihar teachers up in arms against ODF patrolling

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A Bihar government order asking school teachers to prevent open defecation in their areas by patrolling in their wards or Panchayats has stirred up a controversy as teachers are up in arms against the administration saying that the directive is an ‘insult’ to them.The instructions were issued by the Block Development Officers of Aurangabad’s Deo and Muzaffarpur’s Kurhani. The order asked 200 odd secondary school teachers to visit the villages every morning and evening to keep people from defecating in the open as part of Bihar Open Defecation Free (ODF) campaign. They were also instructed to ask locals to use toilets, and photograph those who refuse to listen to them, and send it to senior officials.The teachers, who are already overloaded with work, are not happy. “The paperwork and teaching for Class 10 and 12 exams are underway. Besides, we also have to participate in campaigns against dowry and child marriage, and promote alcohol prohibition. Is it humanly possible to visit villages every morning and evening for ODF work now?” a government schoolteacher said.The Bihar Secondary School Teachers Association, has lodged its protest with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar demanding him to withdraw the order. “We do support the ODF campaign. But compliance with the latest order would mean compromising our dignity and endangering our safety,” the association wrote in its letter to the CM.An association functionary said, “The Central government stresses on not engaging teachers for non-academic activities, but the state government has a diametrically opposite take on it. And after all this, they expect the Board exam results to be top class.”The directive has drawn flak from several quarters. Rashtriya Janata Dal president Lalu Prasad Yadav said the Bihar government was making arrangement for getting the teachers thrashed. “At a time when education is in shambles in the state, such order is bizarre,” he said.DIRECTIONSThe order directed secondary school teachers to visit villages twice a day to spread awareness about ODF.
It also instructed them to take pictures of those who refuse to comply and send it to senior authorities

Bihar teachers unhappy with order to take photos of defecation

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A controversy has arisen over directions to school teachers in certain Bihar districts to dissuade people from defecating in the open and click pictures of those who refused to pay heed.Orders issued by block education officers asked teachers to do rounds in various wards and panchayat areas in the mornings and evenings and ask people to use toilets.They were also directed to click photographs to shame those who insisted on relieving themselves in the open.However, teachers were not happy with the extra load of work.”Teachers are already overworked. They are used in a number of non-teaching works like census, preparation of voters’ list etc. This new order on open defecation is not only an addition, it is also an insult to their dignity,” general secretary of Bihar Secondary Teachers’ Association Shatrughan Prasad Singh said.State Education Minister Krishna Nandan Prasad Verma, however, defended the move, saying “Teachers are intellectuals and can perform the task of convincing people not to defecate in the open much better than others.””Moreover, the teachers do not have to keep a tab on those defecating in the open throughout the day. They will have to take some time off in the mornings and the evenings.This will not affect their teaching work,” he said.Achieving open defecation free (ODF) status has become a priority in Bihar in view of the Swachch Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Seven Resolves of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, both of which aim at providing every household with sanitation facility.

Parents want principal arrested

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Angry protests were seen outside the Kaushalya World School on Friday morning, as members of the African Association demanded the arrest of the school principal on Friday morning. This was with regard to an 11-year-old Nigerian boy — a student in the school — who had been allegedly sodomised by 38-year-old man earlier this week. The school principal later held a meeting with the association and assured the members of the safety of their children.Police, too, stated that they were taking all steps possible to reassure the community. “Some members of the African Association spoke to the school management today and expressed concern over the sexual assault on the Nigerian student. They demanded action against the school principal,” said Girish Kumar, Station House Officer, Surajpur.Around 40 members of the African Association had staged a protest outside the school and raised slogans against the school and the principal. The protesting parents further alleged that the school authorities had tried to defend the accused. “We feel that the administration had been hiding the accused earlier. The principal and the owner should be arrested following this. We have not been given any assurances about the safety of our children. How can we send our children to school with such incidents happening inside the school premises?,” said Bukola, a member of the Nigerian Association. Other members of the association stated that they were not sure if they would let their children continue to study here“My nephew also studies here but now I am not sure he will continue here or not. We have been left traumatised after the incident. Earlier, we used to tell countrymen in Nigeria that India is treating us well but now we do not feel it,” said Lawrance, a member, who only gave his first name. However, when DNA contacted Mukta Mishra, the Director Principal of the Kaushalya World School, she denied having defended the accused and stated that the protest was a “misunderstanding.”“They thought that I have been hiding inside the premises and do not want to meet them but that is not the case. I am extending my full support to the victim’s family. It would be incorrect to say that I am defending anyone, we are ready to cooperate in the police investigation,” she said. On Thursday, the District School Inspector has sent a notice to the Kaushalya World School stating that they have found the safety measures as per the Central Board of Secondary Education norms unfit. The school administration has been given three days to reply, otherwise, the school’s license will be cancelled. Reacting to this Mishra said, “The incident is a shock for us. We have also sorted the things which are not there in the school according to the CBSE norms and will be sending them a reply and requested them for an inspection again.”IN PROTESTAround 40 members of the African Association staged a protest outside the school and raised slogans against the school and the principal.

Blue Whale Challenge: After Haryana student’s suicide, police confiscates 5 phones of his friends

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Amid rising concerns over the Blue Whale Challenge, the Haryana police have confiscated mobile phones of five friends of a 16-year-old boy who committed suicide on Saturday.The police have tracked 11 friends of Karan Thakur suspected to be in the grip of the deadly game and seven are from the DAV Senior Secondary School where he was studying, reported Indian Express.The police contacted their parents and got their mobiles confiscated. Along with Karan’s phone, they have been sent to the Digital Investigation Training and Analysis Centre in Gurgaon to analyze the data and retrieve deleted information.Police told the daily that they took a decision to get the mobile data examined by experts in Gurgaon.The report also said that the Panchkula police have issued an advisory on Tuesday, which said: “Reach out to your kids before the Blue Whale does”. The five-point advisory asks the parents to monitor their children’s online activity.Schools have also been asked to observe any visible marks like cuts or wounds on the body and verify the precise cause.In the last few months, the deadly online game has claimed several lives. Last week, a 12-year-old boy was found dead on railway tracks in Uttar Pradesh.The Blue Whale Challenge is reportedly a suicide game in which the player is given certain tasks to complete over a period of 50 days and the final task leads him or her to commit suicide.The player is also asked to share photos after finishing each challenge.Admitting to being the driving factor behind the suicides of youngsters playing the game, Philipp Budeikin, who claims to have created the game, says that the victims were just ‘biological waste’.”Victims were ‘happy to die’ and I am ‘cleansing society’,” Budeikin told police when he was arrested in May this year.A 17-year-old Russian girl has also been arrested by police for allegedly being the mastermind behind the Blue Whale Challenge, that encouraged players to commit suicide.

Centre to use Nirbhaya Fund for school safety measures

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>As a fallout of the Ryan International School incident, where a 7-year-old child was found murdered in the school’s washroom, the Centre will now utilise a corpus from the Nirbhaya fund to train drivers and other non-teaching staff in schools to ensure safety and security of children. This is the first time that money from the Nirbhaya fund will be used for children. Official sources said that the decision has been taken looking at the increasing number of crimes against children in schools. The decision was taken at a high-level meeting of officials from the Ministry of Human Resource Development and Ministry of Women and Child Development on Monday. Officials from CBSE, NCPCR, KVS and other organisations were also present in the meeting. A six-member committee consisting of secretaries from Ministry of Tribal Affairs, Minority Affairs, WCD, HRD, Social Justice and Water and Sanitation will look into the implementation of schemes. Among the major initiatives that the government plans, is establishing POCSO booths in each school equipped with the Childline helpline number (1098) where a child can lodge complaints of any deviant sexual activity or any form of sexual harassment. Details of the eBox facility, an online platform where children can lodge complaints online about sexual harassment, will be printed by the NCERT on textbooks, along with details of POCSO to make both children and their parents aware about the existence of a POCSO committee in schools. “The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has in the past also sent various circulars to schools to maintain POCSO committees and display it properly in school corridors so that they know that such a committee exists. The same rule will be re-asserted in view of latest incidents,” said a senior official from CBSE. Apart from this, the NCPCR will issue guidelines for routine security and safety audit of schools. The role of parent-teacher associations will also be increased inside the school management to strengthen the security and safety inside the school.Komal, a movie developed by NCERT on child sexual abuse, will be shown to children in schools as a part of educating them about good touch, bad touch. The movie, which is available on the official website of NCERT as well, shows what child sexual abuse is through the life story of a young school girl abused by her neighbour. Gender champions, children above 16 years of age screened by the school committee to create awareness of gender-sensitive campaigns, will also be deployed. As per a set of directives sent by the NCPCR to schools in 2016 for the safety and security of schools, the verification of all staff members, affidavits by newly selected candidates that they have not been accused of any offence under POCSO, gender sensitive curriculums, etc were part of the safety audit. A two-member committee constituted by CBSE had fixed responsibility of the 7-year-old child’s death on Ryan International School, Gurugram. It said that the death could have been averted had the school been more ‘cautious’.

I would like to substitute it by some other poem on school.I have attached one for your consideration by an Indian author.”Confirming the same, Manan Choksi, the executive director of the school, said, “Blake’s poem focuses on the downsides of formal learning and shows how going to school on a summer day takes away the joy. The boy in this poem is more interested in escaping his classroom. When CBSE is taking a step forward and asking for suggestions, schools, according to me, should not restrict to pointing out syntax errors but semantic errors as well.”

NEET 2017 exam not to be nullified: Supreme Court

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> The Supreme Court today refused to “nullify” the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) 2017 exam, saying it would affect over six lakh candidates who have passed the test to join medical and dental courses.A three-judge bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra said it would be “very difficult” to disturb the results of NEET as around 6.11 lakh candidates, out of a total of 11.35 lakh aspirants, have cleared it and the counselling process was on. “We cannot pass an interim order like this. The admission process must continue. There are over six lakh students,” the bench, also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and M M Shantanagoudar, said. “In any case, it is very difficult to disturb the result,” it said while refusing to accept the submission of counsel appearing for the petitioners who said that three sets of question papers were given to the candidates in the exam in Andhra Pradesh.The counsel contended that NEET 2017 examination has to be “nullified” and conducted afresh.Additional Solicitor General Maninder Singh, appearing for Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), opposed the contentions saying besides English and Hindi, the exam was conducted in eight vernacular languages for the first time. “The level of difficulty of questions were the same in all the languages. We will put it in affidavit that there were two sets of question papers. Around 1.48 lakh candidates have given the exam in vernacular languages and it was to avoid leakage of question papers,” Singh told the bench.The petitioners argued that the all-India ranking was given in the NEET exam which postulates that every candidate should get the same question paper. “What has been done is completely unlawful. How can there be all-India ranking when students are given different sets of question papers,” the counsel asked. However, the bench said it would first go through CBSE’s affidavit and asked the board to file it within three days. At the fag end of hearing, the counsel for petitioners referred to an order of the apex court on June 12 saying the declaration of result and admission shall be subject to the decision in the matter pending before it.However, the bench said, “The order is there. We are not vacating it. We will not pass any order today”. The bench has listed the matter for hearing on July 31. The top court had on June 12 stayed the Madras High Court order which had restrained CBSE from publishing the results. CBSE had declared the result on June 23.

ICSE’s Class 6 textbook sparks row over mosque depicted as noise pollutant

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Days after singer Sonu Nigam sparked outrage on social media saying he was woken up by the sound of azaan from a mosque, a similar case of a Class 6 textbook taught in Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (ICSE) schools depicting mosque as a source of noise pollution has come to the fore. The image has sparked outrage on social media, prompting people to start an online petition against the textbook’s publishers. Reacting to the outrage, the publisher later apologised and promised that the picture would be removed in subsequent editions.The ICSE, however, maintained the Board does not publish or prescribe textbooks, and that schools had to deal with the issue. Gerry Arathoon, chief executive and secretary of the Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations, said, If any book with objectionable content is being taught at certain schools, it is for schools and publisher to ensure such a thing the does not happen.The science textbook, published by Selina Publishers, has a chapter on the causes of noise pollution. The picture, shared widely on social media, shows a train, car, plane and a mosque, all with symbols depicting loud sound, next to a man grimacing and shutting his ears.In his apology on social media, publisher Hemant Gupta said: “This is to inform all concerned that we will be changing the picture in subsequent editions of the book.”Gupta said the diagram on page 202 of its publication, Integrated Science, consisted of “a structure resembling a portion of a fort and other noise producing objects in a noisy city”. “We do apologise if it has hurt the sentiments of anyone,” he said.There have been several incidents of controversial content being found in school textbooks in recent months, after which Human Resource Development Ministry has been insisting that all schools use only National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) books.Excerpts from a Class 12 Physical Education textbook taught in some Central Board of Secondary Education schools had kicked up a furore for defining a figure measurement of 36-24-36 as the “best body shape for females”.A Class 4 environmental science textbook that suggested killing a kitten as part of an experiment went viral on social media, forcing the publisher to withdraw it from the market earlier this year.

Nepal concludes 2nd phase of local polls with 70.5% turnout

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Millions of Nepalese today voted in the second phase of the country’s first local-level polls in two decades as the Himalayan nation took a crucial step towards cementing democracy amid political turmoil. Authorities recorded a 70.5 per cent voter turnout, slightly lower than the 71 per cent recorded in the first phase on May 14. The elections were largely held in a peaceful and fair manner in all the polling centres, despite some sporadic incidents at a few places, Chief Election Commissioner Ayodhee Prasad Yadav said. The counting of votes will start as soon as the ballot boxes reach the counting centres, he said. The highest, 80 per cent, voter turnout was recorded at Bajura district while the lowest was reported from Bhojpur with 61 per cent. The voting began at 7 AM in a total of 8,364 polling centres and concluded at 5 PM. Voting in two polling centres in Bajhang district were halted due to clashes between the cadres of Nepali Congress and Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist Leninist), according to the EC. In ward number 9 of Rolpa Municipality, the voting was halted after a voter poured acid into a ballot box. According to police, the acid destroyed 10 ballot papers. Deputy Superintendent of Police Ram Prasad Gharti Magar said they were investigating the case. Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba cast his vote at the Asigram Higher Secondary School, the polling station in Ruwakhola in Dadeldhura district of far-east Nepal. He said the local villagers were excited to participate as the second phase of local-level elections were held in peaceful, free and fair manner. Deuba assured that the Constitution’s full-fledged implementation would take its course once the local government was established, and that the development works would move forward efficiently, rapidly and transparently. In a brief statement, Deuba said the elections were held so that the villages’ governments are established by the villagers themselves. Meanwhile, Nepal media reported that at least four persons died, apparently due to natural causes, while casting their votes. More than 6.4 million people are eligible voters in the 35 districts of Provinces 1, 5 and 7 that have gone to polls in the second phase of polls to elect more than 15,000 local representatives. Though the local polls were earlier scheduled for two phases, the second phase had to be postponed twice — and a third phase had to be declared — in a bid to accommodate the dissenting parties, including the Madhesis, that are yet to commit to the polls to be held in Province 2 on September 18. In the first round of polls held on May 14 in Provinces 3, 4 and 6, voter turn out was recorded at 71 per cent. All the political parties including the Madhesi parties are taking part in the elections. The Nepal government had earlier this month postponed the date of elections in the disputed Madhesi-stronghold Province 2 by nearly three months, adding a third phase in the polls that will take place in September. The Rastriya Janta Party Nepal, the key Madhesi party, have fielded their candidates as independents in the election. The Election Commission said 62,408 candidates were contesting the second phase of elections. Votes were cast secretly under the first-past-the-post electoral system on the basis of one post, one vote pattern. The Ministry of Home Affairs said yesterday that the government had made fool-proof security arrangements to ensure that the second phase of local level elections took place in a free, fair and peaceful environment.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Delhi HC pulls up CBSE, says if there are errors in totalling, mistakes possible in evaluation

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Referring to a news item claiming that the CBSE made mistakes in the totalling of marks which was corrected after verification, the Delhi High Court said there could be “errors” in evaluation of answer sheets.According to the news report, some students who had sought verification of their board exam marks saw a substantial increase of 35-45 marks in their scores. “When there are so many errors in totalling, then how many would there be in evaluation,” a bench of justices Sanjeev Sachdeva and A K Chawla wondered after referring to the news report.It directed the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to place before the court the decision of its governing body and examination committee to do away with its re- evaluation policy. The bench also asked the board to bring its marking schemes for the various class XII subjects, for re-evaluation of which students have moved the high court.

The petitions by the students, who recently gave class XII board exams from Delhi and one from Saudi Arabia, have challenged the scrapping of the re-evaluation policy of the CBSE.They have also sought parity with 150 Odisha students whose answer sheets have been ordered by the Orissa High Court to be re-evaluated. However, the CBSE told the Delhi High Court that it is seeking review of the Orissa High Court order and till now has not declared any re-evaluated results in that state.It also said the news article regarding the totalling errors was written in a sensationalised manner. The CBSE also told the bench that under its new policy of providing photocopies of answer sheets, if students find any discrepancy in totalling or evaluation, the same can be brought to the attention of the board which will look into it and take suitable action.

Students file online petition, demand biannual NET exams

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In April 2017, the Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar had hinted that the government might consider holding National Eligiblity Test (NET) only once in year as the number of students appearing for the bi-annual exams had reduced.While the HRD minister did not give a clarity on whether the exams will be held this year, the University Grants Commission (UGC) had confirmed that the July edition of NET will be conducted this year. But according to a notification published by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) dated June 6, the NET exam will be held on November 19, 2017.An online petition in this regard, started by a certain Kawalpreet Kaur, currently has support from more than 1000 students across the country, demanding the NET to be held twice a year. The petition reads, “ there seems to be a break in the practice of conducting NET twice in a year. CBSE had earlier expressed its unwillingness to conduct the NET exam twice a year as has been so far. After a protest from the student community, the UGC released a press statement saying that the CBSE has been asked to conduct NET exam in July 2017. But to our utter shock, we’ve now come to know that the notification published by CBSE dated 6th June declares that NET exam will be held on 19th November 2017. It is extremely unfortunate that the UGC after releasing press statements has withdrawn from accountability.”Students are not only demanding the restoration of the bi-annual exam, but also want the restrictive six per cent cap for NET qualification to be removed. Petition also states, “We have also been informed of the alarming move by the UGC to reduce the number of students who will qualify the NET exam. It has been reported in news papers that the UGC has decided to reduce the cap of students qualifying for NET to 6%.”

The final plan has been approved by the ministry of Finance, and will soon be sent to the Cabinet for approval.According to sources in the ministry, the agency will have people from the private sector as well including experts in particular subjects and IT experts to make sure that the tests are conducted online, in a hassle-free manner.Subject experts will create a question bank that will be used for the exam. “Creating a question bank, ideating and managing the online system are the key points that we are looking at when we talk about NTA,” said a senior official in HRD ministry.The official added that once it gets the Cabinet nod and things start moving, the NTA should be able to conduct some tests in the coming year.To start with, the government first wants to create a structure which is reliable and efficient before deciding what work needs to be allotted to the NTA. The announcement of creating such an agency was made in this year’s budget by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.While the agency will gradually take on most of the competitive exams that are conducted in the country, the CBSE will extend help in the initial days. “We want to first build a structure that is reliable so that all institutions are comfortable in joining hands with us. Entrance tests for IITs and IIMs will also be conducted by NTA but at a later stage,” the official added.

An Act to establish the Jharkhand Academic Council was enacted by the Jharkhand State Legislature and assented to by the Governor of the State on 26.12.2003, which was known as Jharkhand Academic Council Act 02.7.2003.The Jharkhand Academic Council was established for holding and conducting examinations at the end of Intermediate, Education, Secondary Education, Sanskrit Education and Madrasa Education and for prescribing courses of studies for such examinations and for recommending for recognition of Intermediate Educational Institutions, High Schools, Sanskrit Schools and Madrasas to the State Government and for carrying out such other or duties assigned to the council by the State Govt from time to time.With the establishment of the Jharkhand Academic Council, the Bihar Intermediate Education Council Act, 1992, the Bihar School Examination Board Act, 1952 (adapted as Jharkhand Secondary Examination Board Act, 2000) Bihar Sanskrit Education Board Act, 1981 And Bihar Board of Madrasa Educaiton Board Acts, 1981 were repealed.The Jharkhand Academic Council started functioning in a rented house in Rameshwaram where previously the Jharkhand Intermediate Council functioned, and the Secondary portion continued to function in Zila School Ranchi campus. The search for suitable accommodation for JAC continued unabated till at last the Council was housed in a portion of the Birsadih Club on rent. The present office was inaugurated by the hon’ble Chief Minister Sri Arjun Munda on 13.12.2003 under the Chairmanship of the then HRD Minister Sri Pashupati Nath Singh.Under the dynamic leadership of the State Govt. all the branches of education Secondary, Intermediate Sanskrit (Madhyama) and Madrasa wer brought under the single umbrella of Jharkhand Academic Council with the sole intention that all the branches of learning got equitable and unified attention so that they may grow into mighty oaks and no branch gets etiolated and languished in cold shade of neglect.Another leap forward was taken when the CBSE curriculum was introduced from the primary stage to the Intermediate stage to enable our students to partake in the main current of the national education-programme freely and naturally. The CBSE has been kind enough to recognise all our examinations and to issue a no-objection certificate in regard to implementation of the CBSE curriculum Even the COBSE granted recognition to the examinations conducted by the Council and as a result of this other Boards / Councils in India have started recognising our Examinations.In order that our teachers do not have any difficulty in teaching CBSE courses, some Orientation Courses and Workshops were conducted in collaboration with some eminent publishers.It is a matter of pleasure that the State Govt. allotted 4. acres of land in the vicinity of the Project School, Bargaona in Namkum block and the foundation stone was laid by Hon’ble Chief Minister Sri Arjun Munda on 2.9.2004. The matter of appointment of Architect is under active consideration.

Student in HC for re-evaluation of Eco answer sheet

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A school student today moved the Delhi High Court alleging faulty evaluation of her Economics answer sheet in this year’s class XII board examination. The student wanted the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) authorities to re-evaluate her answer sheet. Justice C Hari Shankar, however, was not inclined to pass any direction on the ground that the CBSE had discontinued the practice of re-evaluation of marks for all subjects from 2017. The judge said he has sympathy for every child, but he could not pass an order as there was no specific challenge to the CBSE’s October 2016 notification, discontinuing re- evaluation. “In view of this, it appears to be prima facie difficult to grant any relief,” the court observed. On this the counsel for the girl informed the court that recently the Orissa High Court had directed the CBSE to re- evaluate the answer sheets of 18 class XII students who had moved a plea alleging faulty evaluation. Taking note of this, the judge directed the counsel for the CBSE to secure a copy of the court order and to place it before the Delhi High Court on June 15. It also asked the counsel for both the parties to inform it if there was any disclaimer on the CBSE’s website that the “photocopy of an evaluated answer book shall not be challenged by any examinee in the court of law or make any claim on this account in any forum”. The girl has approached the court seeking direction to the CBSE for a re-evaluation of her Economics paper and to supply her with a copy of the answer sheet. The CBSE’s counsel in court had vehemently opposed the re-evaluation of answers as the process has been stopped as a policy decision.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

SC tells CBSE to declare NEET results by June 26

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Bringing relief and cheer to medical aspirants, the Supreme Court on Monday stayed a Madras High Court order and directed the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to declare the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) results by June 26.The apex court’s decision comes as a welcome move as any delay in the results would have disrupted the admission process. Once the results are announced, the board will focus on counselling and admission of almost 12 lakh students who took the test in English and eight other vernacular languages.However, the entire process after the results will be conditional to the SC’s ruling on various petitions that are still pending before it. The court has also directed the high courts not to entertain any more petitions related to NEET.”The high court should not have easily and liberally interfered with the schedule,” a vacation bench comprising justices Prafulla C Pant and Deepak Gupta said responding to the high court’s May 24 order.In response to the court’s ruling, the CBSE announced that it will open the results of NEET for challenge for two days before declaring the results.”The images of OMR answer sheets and responses to the questions marked by the candidates who had appeared in National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (UG), 2017 will be displayed for challenges by the candidates only for two days instead of three days mentioned in the information bulletin,” an official statement from the board read without announcing any specific day for the results.The Madras HC had granted a stay on the results on a batch of petitions which stated that the test questions in the English language was different than those in the vernacular languages. According to the petitions, there was a vast difference in the difficulty level of the questions in different languages. Similar pleas were filed in different courts across the country which also sought for the May 7 tests to be scrapped and a fresh test to be held with uniform questions.The CBSE had then approached the SC on June 9 seeking a stay on the May 24 order. However, representing the CBSE, Additional Solicitor General Maninder Singh argued that though the question papers in the regional languages and English were different, the difficulty level was maintained.The CBSE added that around 150,000 students had given the test in regional languages while the rest of the students chose English. On the different question papers, the CBSE had said that in the event there was a leak, the entire test would not be compromised and the damage would be limited.The CBSE’s NEET replaced a web of tests conducted for admissions to under-graduate medical (MBBS) and dental (BDS) courses as well as post-graduate (MD/MS) programmes in government and private colleges. Though, a few colleges created under separate laws still hold their unique tests, the NEET results are accepted by all.Display of OMR sheets will be open from June 13 to June 14 and students can challenge the responses based on the answers from June 15 on June 16. Candidates can check the scanned images of their OMR sheet and answer keys by logging into their account using their user ID (registration No.) and password on NEET’s website.
The board has also warned that the candidates who wrongfully challenge the responses will be liable to criminal action.
The decision of the CBSE in the matter of challenges shall be final.

Following SC order, here’s when NEET result will be out

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) today set in motion the process for declaring the result of NEET-2017 after the Supreme Court gave a go- ahead to the board.The apex court today stayed a May-24 interim order of the Madras High Court, which had restrained the CBSE from publishing the result of the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET)-2017.Images of OMR answersheets and aspirants’ responses to the questions will be displayed on the CBSE website for challenge by students only for two days, instead of three as mentioned in the information bulletin, the board said.”The OMR answersheets and responses will be put on display on June 13 and candidates can challenge them till 5 PM on June 14,” an official statement said.The answer keys will be displayed on June 15 and can be challenged till 5 PM on June 16.
ALSO READ SC orders declaration of NEET result, paves way for admissions to MBBS and BDS coursesThe CBSE will announce the result of the national medical entrance examination within a week of the completion of these two processes.In staying the Madras HC order, the Supreme Court paved the way for the declaration of results of the exam taken by around 12 lakh students aspiring to join medical and dental colleges across the country.The top court said it was inclined to grant a stay on the high court’s order which was indirectly “diluting” the schedule for NEET-2017 earlier fixed by the apex court.

Govt proposes NEET-like exam to recruit judicial officers

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The government has proposed to the Supreme Court a NEET-like examination to recruit judges to the lower judiciary. The proposal comes close on the heels of several states, including some ruled by the BJP, opposing the formation of an all-India judicial service, a 60-year-old idea. There were vacancies of 4,452 judges in subordinate courts in the country as per the figures released on December 31, 2015. While the sanctioned strength is 20,502, the actual number of judges/judicial officers in subordinate courts is 16,050. “Adoption of the model followed by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for conducting the National- Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate medical courses could also be explored. “As per the process followed by NEET, the CBSE is responsible for conducting the entrance test, declaration of result and preparation of an all-India rank,” reads a letter written by the Secretary (Justice) in the Law Ministry to the Secretary General, Supreme Court. The ministry has suggested various models to the apex court so that vacancies in the subordinate courts are filled up fast. Besides the NEET model, the Law Ministry has also proposed that a “centralised examination” could be held by a “recruitment body” for selection of candidates and it can work under the supervision of the Supreme Court. It also proposed that the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) can also be asked to hold an exam to recruit judicial officers. The UPSC, it said, can modify its procedures and practices in consultation with the high courts to hold the specialised test. The Secretary (Justice) has also suggested that some of the features followed by the Institute of Banking and Personnel Selection could also be followed to recruit judges to lower courts. The letter is a follow-up of a meeting held on April 8 between representatives of the government and the judiciary to discuss speedy justice where the issue of vacancies in lower courts also came up for deliberation. During the meeting, chaired by apex court judge Adarsh Goel, who heads the Arrears Committee, it was suggested that an alternative methods of recruitment, such as creation of a central selection mechanism, could be introduced. At present, various high courts and state service commissions hold exams to recruit judicial officers. “While there has been a gradual increase in the sanctioned strength of the subordinate judiciary…the working strength of judges is still low due to delay in filling up vacancies. This indicates that the high courts and state public service commissions are facing difficulties in filling up vacancies, which in turn contributes to delay in disposal of cases and a rise in pendency,” the letter states. The letter has since been sent to the states for their views. The matter may come up for hearing in July after the court’s summer break is over. The Centre’s plan to create a national-level judicial service, on the pattern of the All-India Civil Services, was first discussed in 1960 but the plan has not taken off due to continued differences between the stakeholders. Seven states, including BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh and Arunachal Pradesh, have opposed the formation of an all-India judicial service. Another BJP-ruled state, Maharashtra, wants recruitment for the all-India judicial service (AIJS) to be done in a particular manner which the Law Ministry feels is “not in consonance” with the provisions of the service included in the Constitution. According to a Law Ministry note on AIJS circulated to members of a parliamentary consultative committee attached with the ministry, the governments of Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Manipur, Odisha and Uttarakhand want major changes in the proposal formulated by the Centre.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

He topped class 12th exam in Gujarat; now to become a monk

Now he is set to become a Jain monk. Varshil, whose father is a government servant, emerged as one of the toppers in general stream of Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board examination, the results of which were declared two weeks ago. “Though I scored high marks, I don’t want to pursue the usual path where people run behind earthly possessions. My goal is to attain inner peace and eternal happiness. That will be possible only when I leave behind everything and become a Jain monk,” Varshil said, speaking to reporters here. His family is supporting his decision, said Varshil, who will receive `diksha’ (initiation) of monk-hood at a grand ceremony in Surat tomorrow. “Since childhood I used to think a lot about real happiness. Then I met my guru Kalyan Ratna Vijayji Maharaj, who made me understand fine nuances of Jainism and other aspects of leading a happy and meaningful life,” he said. “There is no end to the human greed. Those who are having thousands of rupees try to earn lakhs and then want crores. There is no end to it. But Jain monks who do not have anything except inner peace and knowledge are happier than these people,” he said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

CBSE tightens noose on private schools charging ‘unreasonable’ fees, seeks data

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In a bid to tighten the noose on schools charging “unreasonable” fees and levying “hidden” charges, the CBSE has sought data from private schools about their fee structure and increase in fees in recent years.The move comes weeks after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had warned private schools against turning into “shops” by selling uniform and books in their premises. “We have told schools that they should not charge unreasonable fees. The charges should be reasonable and there should be no hidden costs as that is the more irritating part for parents,” Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said in an interview.”We have sought data from schools about their fee structure and increase in fees. Many schools have sent it and the data is being analysed. Schools which haven’t sent it have been sent reminders and penalised,” he added.The minister, however, did not clarify about the penalty measures for schools found guilty of overcharging and with hidden costs in their fees structure. Overcharging by schools and increase in fees every year has been a subject of concern often raised by parents.Gujarat had last month introduced “Gujarat Self-Financed Schools (Regulation of Fees) Bill, 2017” to regulate the exorbitant fees charged by schools. The bill empowers the Gujarat government to constitute four ‘fee regulatory committees’, one each for the state’s four zones, to determine “fees for admission to any standard or course of study in self-financed schools”.Fees structure proposed in the bill for primary, secondary and higher secondary schools is Rs 15,000, Rs 25,000 and Rs 27,000 per year, respectively. Schools that wish to charge more will have to approach the regulatory committee, which will have jurisdiction over all private schools, whether affiliated to the Gujarat board, the CBSE or international boards.The bill had also caught interest of several states and also the Centre with education ministers from Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra and Javadekar asking for copies of the bill from Gujarat Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama. “There are private schools which are charging Rs 250, Rs 2,500, Rs 25,000 and Rs 2.5 lakh also that is a choice which has to be made by parents.”We value private investment as it contributes to the GDP but schools should not be overcharging,” Javadekar said.
