Book fairs new grounds to warn children about abuse 22.9.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
In light of the brutal murder of a seven-year-old in Ryan International School, the central government is attempting to take steps to ensure children's safety in schools while also spreading awareness about child sexual abuse. To that end, they intend to head to children's book fairs, and according to sources in the Ministry of Human Resource Development, the first such attempt might be made at the Pune book fair organised by the National Book Trust on October 7, which will have posters that will educate children on "good touch, bad touch". A proposal from the ministry in this regard has been sent to NBT, which is yet to take a call. Sources suggested that the ministry was also keen on screening of the film Komal, a short film on child sexual abuse. "We want posters that explain 'good touch, bad touch' at the book fair. It is a children's book fair and the government is trying to create awareness among the children, especially in the wake of the recent incidents of violence. Also, since parents will also ...

Teens risk suicide, drugs and AIDS due to gender "straitjacket" 20.9.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Gender stereotypes put girls as young as 10 at risk of HIV/AIDS and depression, and lead boys to abuse drugs and commit suicide, a major study across 15 countries said on Wednesday. Children around the world - in liberal and conservative cultures - internalise damaging beliefs that boys are aggressive troublemakers, while vulnerable girls need protection, at a much younger age than previously thought, the research found. "Before this study, there was a general belief that at 10 or 11 years of age, (adolescents) were not clued into any issues around gender norms and values," Robert Blum, director of the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute, said. "Young adolescents do not live in the world of childhood... they live in a transitional era where they're acutely aware of what's going on," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. The U.S.-based university and the World Health Organization interviewed about 450 adolescents over four years in countries ranging from the United States and Belgium to Malawi and ...

Supreme Court issues notice on plea over safety of schoolkids 16.9.2017 DNA: Opinion
The Supreme Court on Friday sought the response of the Centre and all state governments to a petition seeking framing of 'non- negotiable' child safety conditions and implementation of guidelines to protect school children from sexual abuse and murder. Taking up the petition filed by two women lawyers — Abha R Sharma and Sangeeta Bharti — a bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud issued notices and sought responses within three weeks. The court directed that the petition be tagged with the petition filed by the father of seven-year-old Pradyuman, who was killed allegedly by a bus conductor at Gurugram's Ryan International School. In their PIL, the two lawyers have raised the issue of children "being exploited and subjected to child abuse repeatedly within the boundaries of schools", and demanded that Central and state governments notify a set of 'non-negotiable' child safety conditions for schools. They have also sought implementation of existing guidelines of ...

Ryan murder aftermath: CBSE issues new guidelines, puts onus on schools to ensure safety of students 14.9.2017 DNA: Popular News
Placing the onus on schools for safety of students on their premises, the CBSE on Thursday issued new security-related guidelines to be implemented by the institutions, failing which they would face derecognition. The guidelines come amid increased concerns about safety of students in school premises following the killing of a seven-year-old student in a Gurgaon school and the rape of a five-year-old girl by a school peon in Delhi. Safety audits, installation of CCTV cameras, police verification, psychometric evaluation, constitution of parent-teacher-students committees to address safety needs of the students and taking regular feedback from parents are among the measures prescribed by the board. "The onus for safety and security of children in school campus shall solely lie upon the school authorities. It is a fundamental right of a child to engage and study in an environment where he/she feels safe and is free from any form of physical or emotional abuse or harassment," the CBSE directive states. It ...

The Indian politician needs to visit school like 'an ordinary parent' to assess child safety: Kailash Satyarthi 13.9.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
In the aftermath of the recent violence and rape incidents being reported in various schools across the country, Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi has urged politicians to go back to school, as an ordinary parent, to assess and understand how schools can be made safe for children. Satyarthi lamented the growing lack of safety and security mechanisms in schools, which leads to growing instances of rape, child abuse and molestation in school premises. The Nobel Laureate said, "I urge all of the political community in the country to go to school as an ordinary parent. See things on your own, feel the environment, question them. Schools are supposed to be an institution of learning and a haven for our children. It should not be a place of torture." "Unless we do not wake up to the dire need to take strong action, our children will continue to suffer. We will fail to make India safe for our children," he added. He was speaking at the Bharat Yatra march which reached Chennai on Wednesday. The Bharat ...
