Improvement in Schools
This petition had 7 supporters
I have come across many incidents of security of students at schools, ranging from a slap to a murder. Most of the times, the school managment is found to be negligent on certain issues, such as background check of employees, faulty cctv cameras, absence of essential staff, etc. etc. The recent murder of a 2nd class boy in Gurugram and Rape of a minor girl in Delhi have left me with no choice but to draft this petition.
Even the education system in totality needs to undergo drastic changes but Safety and security of wards comes before the education itself. If the schools are not safe, then where would parents send their wards to study? Schools have become money making machines and it won't be wrong if I use the word "Education Mafia" extorting huge sums of money from parents. But even the real mafia guarantees safety after receiving the protection money, but the schools are bigger mafias than them, it appears.
The govt. department cannot escape because it is the duty of the government to keep checks and balances over the school as to whether they are functioning correctly as per rules or not.
And I would also say here that it is the parents who have made the schools as status symbols and haven't cared about the education.
I want the Govt. shall make and implement necessary directions to all schools whether private or govt.,
A. Every School must ensure that every corner of their school is under CCTV surveillance and the cameras must be functioning at all times and also are monitored always.
B. Every parent shall have a right to a live feed of video of school.
C. Every School must have atleast 3 to 4 security guards.
D. Biometric attendence.
E. Metal detectors.
F. Sufficient support staff.
G. Permanent psychologist.
H. Panic alarms in toilets, or other secluded places.
I. Friendly teachers.
J. Thorough background check of each employee.
And much more so that the future of our country is safe in those halls of education.
