Dattatray Jagtap, chairman of Konkan division of the Board, filed a complaint with Vashi police in the neighbouring Navi Mumbai.

Inspector Chetan Kakde of Vashi police said that Navi Mumbai Crime Branch and Cyber Crime Cell were also taking part in the probe.

“We have identified the WhatsApp group (where the leaked paper was shared first) and its members,” said Navi Mumbai police commissioner Hemant Nagrale.

The members of the group seemed to be based in Mumbai, police sources said.

Jagtap told PTI that students were admitted inside the exam halls at 10.20 am, while the photographs of the question-paper began to circulate after 10.46 am, so “it can’t be called a leak”.

No re-examination of Marathi and Secretarial Practise subjects would be held, he said, appealing the students not to panic.

Sex Education To Be Made Compulsory In England Schools

Schoolchildren in England will be taught about safe and healthy relationships from the age of four as part of broader compulsory sex education, the government said today. Children will be taught about sex at an “appropriate age” but parents will still have the right to withdraw their children from these classes. Until now, sex education has been compulsory only in government council-run schools and not for privately-run schools and academies. The latest guidance on age-appropriate lessons has a particular emphasis on what constitutes healthy relationships, as well as the dangers of sexting, online pornography and sexual harassment.

Sex Education To Be Made Compulsory In England Schoolsa

“The statutory guidance for SRE [Sex and Relationships Education] was introduced in 2000 and is becoming increasingly outdated. It fails to address risks to children that have grown in prevalence over the last 17 years, including cyberbullying, ‘sexting’ and staying safe online,” said UK education secretary Justine Greening.

All children from the age of four will be taught about safe and healthy relationships, Greening said.
“Parents will continue to have a right to withdraw their children from sex education. Schools will have flexibility over how they deliver these subjects, so they can develop an integrated approach that is sensitive to the needs of the local community; and, as now, faith schools will continue to be able to teach in accordance with the tenets of their faith,” she said.

The announcement follows a widespread campaign by charities, MPs and local authorities, calling for SRE to be made a statutory for all schools.
The UK government is to table an amendment to the Children and Social Work Bill that will make “age appropriate” SRE part of the national curriculum in primary and secondary schools.
British Prime Minister Theresa May has lent her backing to the new changes.

“There is a threat online and that threat we would all recognise has grown. That does mean that now is the right time to look at how we can ensure children have the access they need to the teaching in those subjects,” a No 10 Downing Street spokesperson said.

UP: Online process for RTE admissions to begin from Feb 25

The four-phased online process for admissions under the Right to Education (RTE) for the new academic session (2017-18) in Uttar Pradesh will begin from February 25, officials said.

RTE

The lottery for applications submitted between February 25 and March 15 in the first phase would be held on March 25. The lottery for forms submitted between March 16 and April 15 in phase 2 will be drawn on April 25.

Likewise, the lottery for phase 3 for forms submitted between April 16 and May 10 would be done on May 15 while the lottery in final phase for forms submitted between May 11 and June 15 will be done on June 25.

Schools will be required to complete the admission process for phase one by April 1, phase 2 by May 1, phase 3 by May 18 and the final phase by July 1, sources said.

Last year, chief minister Akhilesh Yadav directed the basic education department to introduce the online system, saying it would help in completing the admission process, which otherwise runs up to July, faster.

Yadav felt that the online system would draw more admission forms and more children from economically weaker sections would be able to get admissions.

At present, the process is manual and RTI activists say the online system would improve capacity, efficiency as well as transparency.

“If somebody who is not computer savvy, he or she may collect RTE application from the office of Basic Shiksha Adhikari, fill it and submit it. The onus is on BSA to upload it and do the needful,” Samina Bano, RTE crusader, said.

Bano said if parents have any difficulty or queries regarding the application process, requirements or any grievances in getting or submitting the forms they may give a missed call on a helpline number 8000 96 7874.

“The call automatically disconnects after a ring. Our office calls back within 36 hours,” she said.

UP has a potential of six lakh admissions each year under RTE’s section 12(1)(c). With over 20,000 admissions in the state in the last two years, the present manual system for application and its processing is cumbersome leads to delays.

Last year, more than 15,000 students enrolled in schools across 49 of 75 districts in UP under RTE that mandates 25% reservation for children from economically and socially disadvantaged sections in private unaided institutes.

Against 21,789 applications, 15,626 students were given admission by privates schools. The number was more than 3 times compared to 2015 when 4,400 poor children got admission in over 500 private schools in only 26 districts. The total number of children admitted in 2012, 2013 and 2014 was only 108 in the state.

Delhi govt challenges court order staying nursery admission rule on neighbourhood criteria

The AAP government in Delhi on Thursday approached the Delhi high court, challenging a single-judge order that stayed its nursery admissions notification compelling 298 private schools, built on public land, to adopt only neighbourhood criteria.

Delhi Government

Filing an appeal before a division bench, the Delhi government contended that the single judge was wrong and erroneous and sought setting aside of the February 14 order.

Justice Manmohan in his February 14 order had said the Delhi government’s January 7 notification was “arbitrary and discriminatory”.

The notification issued by the education department of the Delhi government had made “distance” the primary criterion for admission of tiny tots.

The court had questioned the Delhi government’s decision to impose the neighbourhood restriction to only those schools that are built on Delhi Development Authority land.

The notification accorded priority to students living within a radius of one km from the school concerned. In case the seats remain vacant, those living within a distance of 3 km will get the chance for admission.

There are 1,400 private unaided schools in the capital, of which 298 are built on land allotted by the DDA.

The court’s judgement came on petitions filed by two school bodies — the Action Committee of Unaided Recognised Private Schools and Forum for Promotion of Quality Education along with a few parents to challenge the guidelines.

Earlier, the high court stayed the government’s nursery admission notification that made it mandatory for private unaided minority schools t o admit students, in the unreserved category, on the basis of neighbourhood criteria.

3 Important Concepts for Educators to Teach

Educators always have and always will hold one of the most important roles in society. Whether you are an elementary school teacher or a college professor, you are in a position to influence though and encourage critical dialogue. Nothing could be more important in times of political unrest, and there is no denying that our current political state qualifies as such. In order to fully realize your potential and maximize the impact you have on your students, you should be deliberate in plans to communicate important topics. Doing so can make all the difference in students’ views of political responsibility.

These three concepts are vital to the classroom and to students’ knowledge. If you truly want to make a difference in the lives of those you teach, empower them to engage critically with their government and society. They will be better equipped to do so after learning these ideas.

The Role of Citizens

Many people have fallen into the dangerous assumption that their vote and their input does not matter in the outcome of events. This has led to nearly half of all citizens who would be eligible to vote neglecting the opportunity to do so. This infographic illustrates effectively why votes do matter. In it, the past several elections are explained and it is revealed what an influence swing states have on the results. Regardless of what state you live in, however, students should be encouraged to be politically active and invested in the governmental processes they have a say in.

The Impact of Activism

Many people are also discovering the power of activism and the impact it can have. Another infographic illustrating the rise of millennial activism shows that more young people are getting involved and advocating for the issues they care about deeply. Political involvement is at the root of such efforts, so in encouraging your students to be informed, you should empower them to speak out, too. Building up the next generation of change makers is the only shot we have at making the world a better place, and as a teacher, you are in the role to do so.

The Political System

In order to exercise rights as a citizen and make an impact through activism, one must understand how the political systems in the country work. This is the only way to navigate them effectively. As an educator, you can give your students the power to achieve both of the aforementioned tasks by acquainting them with the basic structures and processes that govern our nation. The more students understand, the better they will be able to use these systems for good. You can directly encourage the development of these goals through education and access to vital information.

No matter what political stance you maintain, you surely want the next generation to be informed and empowered when it comes to making political decisions. As an educator, you have much ability to ensure this happens. Keep these three concepts in mind if you want to leverage your position and use it to teach students about important political ideas.
