I need some advice urgently. I would be obliged if someone guides me as to what to do. My child has been detained in Std II by a repurted ICSE affiliated school.
My wife has been seriously sick for the last two years and had to be admitted in hospitals several times. As a result the child's studies were badly affected. And though, I took utmost care to help him with education, he obviously did not perform brilliantly in the class tests.
And he has been detained in Std II by the school management on the grounds that he did not pass four compulsory subjects on the basis of year average.
The child is smart and good. But, somehow, did not perform well in the class, on paper. Well, I must tell you, he also wets the bed once or twice even now. Need I tell you that he is only 8.
I tried to convince the school teacher and the principal. But, he is adamant on being a strict administrator and even ridiculed me.
I have two questions.
1. Can a school detain a Std II child in the same class, if it is affiliated to ICSE.
2. Does it not violate my child's right to education.
Please someone advise me urgently as to what should I do to save my child from psychological trauma. The school is re-opening on Monday and he is already preparing to join his friends, who all will move to Std III, while he would be kept in the same class.
I am pretty helpless. For no fault of his, the school is bent upon destroying a child. Sorry, I have come to know that this is a usual practice in ICSE schools in Jamshedpur.
Will some lawyer friend help me with some advice? I will always remain indebted for any advice.
Thank you in advance...
