BENGALURU: Authorities of Brigade School in JP Nagar have been accused of ill treating children who were admitted under the Right to Education quota.
Parents of these children protested outside the school on Wednesday. According to the parents, the school management has made a separate section for RTE children, who are taught by ayaas.
The school management denied the allegation and this is when the parents demanded to see the CCTV footage. “If what they are saying is true, then let them show us CCTV footage. Even the kids told us about the discrimination,” a parent said. The parents say their children are being taught a different syllabus and are even made to sit on the floor.
“Everyone should get to know about the reality. Those who were not admitted under RTE get good treatment and even their seating arrangement is different,” a parent said.
Following the complaint filed by parents, an official visited the school on behalf of the Block Education Officer. The parents want the education department to act against the school authorities.
School authorities, however, said they were holding a remedial class for the children but did not elaborate on it. They also added they will hold a meeting with the parents.
