Maharashtra Education Dept Holds Three-Day Training Session On Child Rights for Teachers

Teachers across Maharashtra had to attend a three-day training session on child rights and protection compulsorily as per a circular issued by the Maharashtra Education Department. This training was conducted between October 20 and 22 to raise awareness about the teachers’ role in ensuring the physical and mental well being of the students. 

The state Education Department had also asked schools to maintain 100% attendance of their teachers. Officials later said that the event saw good attendance while adding that those who missed it can rewatch the entire video online.

“Ensuring the physical and psychological wellbeing of children is the responsibility of the state government. Teachers have to ensure that the rights of students are protected, and should spread the word in their respective schools,” the circular read. 

Despite the teachers being asked to be present, some faced issues setting up the video link. “Many were not able to register despite trying multiple times. Even the video link which was given to teachers did not work,” a teacher at Andheri’s Hansraj Morarji Public School said.

“Right to education is a very important right of students, and when they are not able to join online learning, it is a violation of that right,” another teacher said.
