CBSE issues notice to Ryan, threatens to revoke its affiliation

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Saturday issued a show-cause notice to the Ryan International School as to why their affiliation with the Board may not be withdrawn.

The Supreme Court on Friday sought the response from the Centre and all states on a plea by two women lawyers for laying down child safety conditions to protect school-going children from offences like sexual abuse and murder.

A two-member fact-finding committee set up by CBSE following the murder of seven-year-old Pradhuman Kumar last week said it appeared from the sequence of events that Ryan's worldwide was guilty of gross negligence. In a similar drive against errant school vehicles, the Delhi government's transport department seized 250 school buses, including 10 of Ryan International Group of Institutions.

Still, the dangers lingered, mostly in the form of noxious gas from generators serving those who still didn't have power. Key details of the Hollywood Hills incident remain unknown, even after officials delivered an update Thursday morning.

SIT teams yesterday searched the school here for clues to the crime while a CBSE panel also inspected the premises to examine loopholes in security arrangements. In last few days, several other incidents of barbaric treatment and sexual abuse of school children on campus have been reported triggering a nation-wide debate if children are safe in school. CBSE has directed all its affiliated schools to strictly adhere by the order of the board and conduct this test on all its staff members including teachers, non-academic employees, peon, bus drivers, conductor and sweepers within the span of two months. According to M. Srinivasan, President of Managements of Independent CBSE Schools Association, most of the principals have shared their doubt in finding a total result of an individual from a psychometric analysis. It also observed that only three out of five floors of the school building were used for teaching purposes and students had access to unused classrooms and the terrace, which were not locked, compromising their safety. Parent-teacher-student committees should be set up to address the safety needs of the students, and parents' feedback taken regularly. Attention must be paid on stringent checks and verification of hired teaching and non-teaching staff in the school.

The Haryana government has asked for a CBI investigation into the brutal murder of Pradhuman Thakur in the school premises.
