Bombay High Court rules in favour of learning disabled student
The Bombay High Court has ruled in favour of a student with a learning disability who failed Class 10 exam by one mark.
The court set aside the state education board's decision to fail her and award her minimum passing marks.
The court said the board should look at encouraging such students.
The student had appeared for her SSC board examinations in March 2016. She had passed in all the main subjects, but was given a 'D' grade and declared failed in an optional subject. On going through the answer sheet, she discovered that the answer to one of the questions was as per her textbook but was marked as wrong.
According to the Maharashtra government policy, an LD student who fails should be given grace marks of up to 20.
