The video of the students shamelessly bullying and mercilessly thrashing a fellow-student in the classroom of Kendriya Vidayalaya, Muzaffarpur, has gone viral on the social media and is being met with shocking reactions.
It has been reported that the sons of a notorious
gangster of Bihar, who is serving a jail term, had beaten their
school mate in the classroom and threatened the victim not to report
the matter to the authorities or else he would face dire
consequences. It is also been reported that the victim has not been
beaten for the first time but had been keeping quiet.
However, this time the incident got recorded and
after it became viral, the officials of Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan
rushed to the school and have instituted an inquiry into the
Calling the incident horrible, a netizen said that
'Imagine this happened in Kendriya Vidyalaya and no teacher around!
Bullying and ragging is legally banned! What a shame!'
It has been seen that school violence and bullying
makes the victim to get in a severe state of distress leading to deep
psychological, social or physical trauma.
When the schools with conscious effort create a
social learning environment in which there is mutual trust, hardly
any bullying occurs in schools. Not only the incident should be
inquired into but also the failure of the school management should be
looked into since schools are accountable for ensuring self-esteem
protecting learning environment for all children.
The incidents of bullicides have been reported
from schools due lack of supported classroom supervision and systemic
failures. The education system needs to wake up, I believe.
