A child rights body of the Delhi government has found that 151 schools in the city do not have special educators for children with special needs and issued show-cause notices to them. In its notice, the Delhi Commission For Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) has warned these schools of strict action if they failed to appoint a special educator within six weeks of the notice.
The DCPCR said the schools either have to certify within 15 days of the receipt of the notice that a special educator is already engaged in the school or appoint one within six weeks of the notice.
"In case, the school is unable to appoint a special educator within the given time, the school is directed to show a cause of the same, failing which the commission would be constrained to recommend to the board (CBSE) the initiation of disaffiliation of the school," the notice read.
The notice mentioned that the Central Board of Secondary Education had in 2015 directed all affiliated schools to appoint special educators to ensure quality education for all children, including those with special needs.
