Mumbai: Authorities of a school in suburban
Andheri here have sought behaviour certificates, sworn in
before a magistrate, from the parents of class nine and ten
students of the institution.
The demand is part of the process to develop good
human resource and to ensure the best behaviour of students
inside and outside the school, director of Prime Academy
school Chaula Joshi said.
"We want our students to follow certain discipline and we
want them to be good human beings when they go out of the
school," Joshi said.
"We wanted parents to take up and share responsibility
for the good behaviour of their wards as these students are
the future leaders of the country," she said.
The five-year-old school holds classes from the nursery
to SSC level.
"We are getting children from well to do families also
and we have observed that due to undue freedom enjoyed by the
students at home, they behave badly in the class and sometimes
they are rude and disrespectful to teachers," said Joshi.
She complained that rules in the school calender are not
followed by the parents and some of the older students behave
like rowdies. Students from lower classes are also affected
because of this, she added.
Joshi said that most of the parents had expressed their
willingness "fully cooperate" with the step.
