BENGALURU: Parents of a class 2 girl student have filed a complaint with the child rights commission against a city school for issuing a notice stating that the child will be given a transfer certificate owing to her “negative behaviour”.
Defending the school’s decision, trustee Santosh E said they had no other option.
“The child was being instigated to display negative behaviour by her mother. We tried to make her understand what’s happening in the classroom because of the child’s negative approach. Instead, the mother threatened to file a police complaint against the school and teachers. That’s when we told that we will issue a TC.”
D Shashi Kumar, general secretary of the Karnataka Associated Management of English Medium Schools, said, “There are some exceptional cases where children show negative behaviour.
There was a similar case of a grade 1 child. When it became impossible to handle even after medical intervention, the parents themselves decided to take her out.”
Saying that such cases require medical intervention, he said, “We hope the school arrived at this step after consulting a paediatric psychiatrist.”
