Parliamentary panel for removing ‘No Detention Policy’

The Department-related Parliamentary Standing Committee on Human Resource Development has backed the government’s proposal to abolish the ‘no detention policy’ in schools. In its 300th report on the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (Second Amendment) Bill, 2017 tabled in both Houses of Parliament, the panel has recommended allowing states their discretion in deciding about detaining a student in class 5 or or class 8 or in both classes, or not to detain in any class till the completion of elementary education. However, it has asked the Central government to issue common guidelines to the states vis-a-vis detention of a child.
