This petition had 340 supporters


GIVEN THE RECENT SPATE OF INCIDENCES IN EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS TIMES NOW URGES THE GOVT THROUGH ITS HRD MINISTRY, LAW MINISTRY ALONG WITH THE WOMEN AND CHILD WELFARE MINISTRY TO FORMULATE STANDARD GUIDELINES WHICH ALL EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS SHOULD MANDATORILY FOLLOW TO ENSURE SAFTEY AND SECURITY OF WARDS. THOSE FOUND LACKING SHOULD BE SEVERLY PUNISHED WITH EVEN THEIR LICENSE/CERTIFICATION CANCELLED. CHILDREN ARE ENTRUSTED TO THESE INSTITUTIONS FOR MANY HOURS IN THE DAY. THESE INSTITUTIONS ESPECIALLY THE PRIVATE BODIES CHARGE SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS AS TUITION FEES. MANY ALSO CHARGE CAPITATION FEES AND DONATIONS. CHILDRENS’ SAFETY SHOULD BE MADE THEIR RESPONSIBILITY. ALL THOSE WHO ARE CONTRACTED/ENLISTED/HIRED BY THE SCHOOLS SHOULD BE VERIFIED BY THE POLICE. ACCESS TO WASHROOMS, CLASSROOMS AND OTHER PREMISES INSIDE THE SCHOOL SHOULD BE LIMITED TO AUTHORISED SCHOOL PERSONNEL ONLY. CCTV CAMERA MONITORING AND REGULAR POLICING OF CORRIDORS MUST BE ENFORCED. SAFETY AND SECURITY OF WARDS SHOULD BE MADE A MANDATORY RATING POINT FOR ALL EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. SCHOOLS FOUND LACKING SHOULD BE CERTIFIED UNSAFE. TIMES NOW URGES PEOPLE TO JOIN THIS PETITION AND COLLECTIVELY RAISE OUR VOICE FOR THE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF OUR CHILDREN.
