Mumbai: The Bombay high court has directed a Nashik school to allow a 14-year-old boy, who was suspended for aggressive behaviour, to continue studying in the institute. The boy has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The court also directed the school to conduct a special training programme for about a week since the child has not been attending classes for the past two and half months. A division bench of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice M.S. Sonak was hearing a writ petition that challenged Wisdom High International School’s decision to debar the student. Last Tuesday, the court had said that such matters would have to be handled with some sensitivity and asked for the school’s principal and the boy’s teacher to appear before it.

On November 30, the parents, headmistress, class teacher and psychologist of the school met the Chief Justice in her chamber and decided that there was a congenial atmosphere for the child to return. Therefore, for about a week from December 5 2016, it was decided that the child shall attend classes and the school shall make a separate training programme for him to compensate the loss of classes he had undergone for the last two and half months. The Chief Justice, the teachers, the psychologist and the parents decided that the child’s mother would accompany him from December 5 to December 12.

They also decided that from December 13 onwards his father should act as a shadow teacher to assist not only the child but also the school administration to cope with the situation so that by the beginning of next year things would be normal for the petitioner in the school. The court has kept the matter for further hearing on January 17.
