UK Islamic school guilty of sex discrimination for segregating boys and girls 13.10.2017 deccanherald.com
An Islamic faith school in Britain was found guilty on Friday of sex discrimination for segregating boys and girls in lessons, on breaks, and making them walk down separate corridors, in a ruling that will affect other schools with separation policies. Three appeal judges ruled the Al-Hijrah School in Birmingham in central England was discriminating against pupils contrary to the Equality Act, overturning a High Court ruling last year, but added that girl students were not more disadvantaged than boys. Amanda Spielman, Chief Inspector of education watchdog Ofsted, welcomed the ruling, saying it was her organisations duty to ensure children were properly prepared for the future and it was discrimination to keep them apart. "It places these boys and girls at a disadvantage for life beyond the classroom and the workplace, and fails to prepare them for life in modern Britain," Spielman said in a statement. "Educational institutions should never treat pupils less favourably because of their sex, or for any ...

Worried over sexual exploitation of children in India, Rajya Sabha member Rajeev Chandrasekhar on Friday bemoaned that the issue was not a priority for politicians. The lawmaker said while efforts by individuals and the civil society were "well-meaning", the menace has assumed a form that only an "institutional approach" can address. He blamed "years of neglect" by various governments for this. The independent Rajya Sabha member from Bangalore launched a National Action Plan against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (NAPCSEC) during a press conference in New Delhi. "While we talk of girl education and development, the issue of girl safety and their exploitation has never been made part of the mainstream discussion," Chandrasekhar said. "The problem has been that we have not been institutionally organised," he said. Asked why he believed it hasn't been made a political priority so far, the lawmaker replied, "I think there has been a basic reluctance to accept it as a major problem." "But if we as ...
