Online petition favours derecognition of errant schools

Rapes, murders and assaults in the City schools, in recent past, have instilled fear in the minds of parents. One such parent has taken to the online platform to ask the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) board to take appropriate action against schools which did not have adequate security measures. 

On change.org, a petition by a ‘concerned parent’ from Bengaluru has registered the support of over 19,000 people from across the country. The petitioner has sought the CBSE to derecognise schools where children have been attacked, raped or killed because of a lapse in security.

“Even if a student is raped or killed on the premises, the school will not be answerable. Sign my petition to make schools accountable and take responsibility of the safety of our children,” the online petition reads.
