NEET or any such entrance examination which give an upper hand to children having access to highly paid coaching institutes is naturally a grave danger to equal opportunities being available for the marginalized section of the society who have limited or no access to such specialized training. Such a scenario, being projected as a mandate to increasing quality of the education thus denied to such section can be nothing but mockery of their capabilities.
The death of Anitha is a stark reminder to such truth and I think it is a grave violation of the rights of the child to equal opportunities and equal education.
We severely condemn the lack of empathy and rationale on the part of the Central and State Governments to do so. NEET, must by all means vanish. Not only NEET, this raises the same question for all the other examinations that claim to tap quality human resource into the Government workforce or Higher Education. Have such tests been inclusive of the marginalized children is clearly a question brought to the forefront now. As responsible systems, it is our duty to bring this under the scanner and do justice to the departed child.
In addition, the commissions must ensure that enough mechanisms must be put in place to ensure that such injustice does not happen to child petitioners or any children, in the future pushing their tender minds to take such extreme measures.
NEET must go. So, must we reconsider all other such eligibility tests. Equal education and equal opportunities and a correspondingly equal creation of opportunities must be ensured. Tamil Nadu State Commission For Protection of Child Rights must suo motu petition the National Commission, the Government of India and the State Government to assess the issue and do justice to the marginalized children.
