Madhya Pradesh education board told to set up facilities to students with disabilities
March 2, 2017
The Madhya Pradesh Human Rights Commission has directed the state education board to pay attention towards the needs of students with disabilities appearing for examinations.
The commission has said that the government has failed to provide adequate facilities to children with disabilities. The board has been asked to create a list of students who require writers and extra time during exams.
The commission said this after a student complained that he was not given a writer even after asking for one. He was unable to clear the exam because of this and has been appearing for the same exam since 2013.
