CBSE has carried out a survey to embrace views of both teachers and students on the ragging issue in schools. The board has conducted the survey after an issue of ragging has come in limelight recently. The main aim of survey is to cover all perspectives on ill - treatment, ragging as well as physical assault faced by the students. The officials of the Board stated that the questions were set for both students and teachers. These questions were sent to them through email. Students and teachers were asked to express their views.
CBSE has collected information based on questions concerning students’ conduct, counting use of foul language, ragging & related activities, and is expected to come up with deterrent measures.
As per officials of CBSE, students were interrogated about:
• The number of times they were verbally, psychologically and physically ill-treated by other students
• Places at which such incidents occurred, such as cafeteria, in school corridors or bus stops
• Whether they reported the incident to their parents, teachers or heads of their school
• If they overlooked the incident after being ragged, or took any measure to prevent such incidents in future
CBSE has also included teachers in the survey & interrogated them on the kind of misbehavior they have noticed about other students arraying from clashes between students to bullying each other or resorting to obnoxious language.
