Even though the Right to Education act prohibits the use of physical torture in government schools, it remains a disturbingly widespread practice across the country to beat students to discipline them. This report documents one such incident, where a teacher severely beat students from classes 8, 9 and 10 during Independence Day celebrations.
Call to Action: Please call the District Collector of Jajpur on +91 6728222330 and ask him to take action against the teacher who beat up children.
Applauds for our Community Corresspondent Satya Banchor! He acted as a strong catalyst in bringing about this change in the lives of the poor tribals.
