Denial of student’s entry to Mundali JNV protested

Friday, 08 November 2019 | PNS | ATHAGARH

Shreeman Das, a Class-XI student of the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV) at Mundali, was denied entry to the school on November 3 merely because his father had not submitted a copy of an affidavit pertaining to discipline.

Principal Ramraj Singh gave his father a sample copy of the affidavit and asked him to bring his child with the affidavit.

On Thursday, his father came to the school with the affidavit but found that the Principal was absent. His father met Vice-Principal who sent him to meet the Housemaster. The Housemaster asked him to come on Monday as the Principal was out of the station. Subsequently, the parent contacted the Principal over mobile phone. The Principal said his ward won't be allowed to school today (Thursday).

 As the student was deprived of education for the last four days, his father went to the Godisahi police outpost and lodged a written complaint against the arbitrary decision of the School authorities and subsequently sat on a dharna at the main gate of the school, demanding entry of his son to the school.

Police, local Sarpanch and media persons reached the school. After they held discussions with the authorities, the student was given entry to the student and his father asked to submit the affidavit.

Sources said school authorities turned hostile to some students and their parents as they had earlier demanded before the Principal to develop quality of teaching with provision of smart classes and made allegations of poor performance by some teachers. This is not the lone case. At least other four students of Class XI in Science stream were not given permission to enter the School whose parents are yet to come to defend.

Meanwhile, some locals have demanded that the school President and district Collector interact with the students, who have been denied entry to the school and deprived of classroom teaching and take action accordingly.
