Chandigarh to have dedicated sports trainers for disabled students
May 23, 2018
The Chandigarh administration has told the Punjab and Haryana High Court that disabled students at government schools are trained in sports and other activities by physical education teachers and special educators.
This came up when the court was hearing a petition filed by disabled children in the state. The Chandigarh administration has claimed that it is making all possible efforts to provide facilities for disabled children for sports and recreation. Various activities are planned according to the budgets that are sanctioned.
The bench asserted that private schools must also come forward to show the facilities that have been made available for disabled students. All the details must be provided to the court at the earliest.
Many private schools have given the number of disabled students in their institutions. But none have given details about the nature of the disability.
25 special educators are appointed under the centrally sponsored scheme of Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan and Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan in 114 schools. All of them are on contract basis at private schools. But there are no special educators in government schools.
