State Govt issues guidelines for private schools in Bengal
In light of the recent untoward incidents in some private schools in Kolkata, the State Government yesterday issued a set of guidelines for such schools in Bengal to follow.
The guidelines were the result of a meeting between the State School Education Department and representatives of private schools.
1. All schools must put up adequate number of CCTV cameras. No area of a school, other than the bathrooms, should be outside the range of CTV cameras.
2. Girls’ schools must have adequate number of ayahs. This is particularly important for schools with male teachers to observe.
3. In school buses for girls, there must be female attendants alongside male attendants.
4. As long as there are students in a school, there must be security personnel too.
