Cbse gets tough on bullying in schools
Cbse has gone tough on ragging and bullying in schools. It has laid fresh guidelines to curb such incidents. It is interesting to notice that cbse has suggested a graded response mechanism to address such cases of bullying. It further adds that a comprehensive list of guidelines may be incorporated for the school management with actions and penalties against such misconduct.
These actions may include verbal / written warning, suspension from attending of schools/classes , withholding of results, cancellation of school/ board results, imposition of fines and as strong as expulsion from school in case of rare circumstances.
Cbse has taken into consideration incidents like suicide attempt of a Bihar chief minister’s son after he was allegedly ragged in a school in Gwalior and many more such incidents. The board has also urged schools to keep a complaint/suggestion box to monitor feedback regularly. It further states that it is primarily a responsibility of schools to monitor and stop such incidents and implications of neglect will be penalized.
