Ragging has always been a problem on college campuses. But the Central Board of Secondary Education feels that ragging in schools is just as rampant and immediate steps need to be taken to address the problem.
A circular to this effect has been sent to schools across the country, asking them to strictly follow certain guidelines that would help address the problem. When city schools re-open later this week, a series of activities will start to ensure that all the pointers in the circular are met.
From detailing punishment for an offender or group of offenders, quantifying the number of counselling sessions that every child has to go through in a year, setting up wellness clubs, bringing out anti-ragging manuals and training peer mentors/educators to mentioning ragging as a crime in school diaries, the circular clearly mentions anti-ragging measures that schools need to take immediately.
