Management of Padma Seshadri Bala Bhavan (PSBB) Senior Secondary School including its principal Friday appeared before the Tamilnadu Commission for Protection of Child Rights in connection with a sexual harassment case.
This is the second time the school authorities were appearing before the commission after its Commerce teacher G Rajagopalan was arrested based on complaints from girl students.
Commission chairperson Saraswathi Rangaswamy said the inquiry lasted for three hours. “The management cooperated well. Once the inquiry is completed, a report will be sent to the government. Till then we may not be able to disclose the details,” she said.
Meanwhile, a communique from the school management to parents asking them to be present during the online classes evoked criticism. In a circular, the management of the school said: “To make our online classes more secure, as a new initiative this year, we would request parents to come forward to be present during the online classes of their respective wards. A monthly roster would then be made and shared. The volunteer could log in at a time convenient to them on the specified date”.
