The schools affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) cannot interview parents and students during admissions and cannot subject students to mental harassment. The board has amended rules so that the schools fall in line with the latest provisions of Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act.
"The CBSE has become one of the first boards to officially declare that screening process are banned and have made corporal punishment and mental harassment an offence," said a senior official from the CBSE board. Over 10,000 CBSE schools have been told to implement the changes. There are about 36 CBSE schools in the city. The board has sent circulars to all heads of its affiliated schools and has asked them to start following the rules from the next academic year. The new rule says: "The school should not subject any child or parent or guardian to any kind of screening." With the RTE laying emphasis on inclusive education and creating a stress-free environment for the children, the board has made addition to the rule. The amended bylaw says: "He/she will be charged with cruelty/physical punishment or mental harassment towards any student or any employee." The new rule on syllabi change for middle school has been amended so that schools will have to request for approval to change syllabus.
