TED NewsDesk, New Delhi. Union Education Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal launched the ADOPT-CSS, a digital programme for teaching and non-teaching staff on child safety and security. This online programme will guide 80 lakh teachers and non-teaching staff of India to ensure school children’s safety.
“At the same time, it will also help to make the school environment fully supportive, useful, and comfortable for children. Any new policy, any new programme, is built on top of this structure. The ADOPT-CSS will prove to be a milestone in ensuring a safe environment for children in schools.” he added.
The Union Minister also spoke about how the new National Education Policy 2020 will carefully track students’ learning levels as well as their participation in schools and bring back those children who have left their studies in the middle.
He added that our Constitution provides an essential structure for protecting early childhood through various provisions like child education, the right to live their life with dignity, and the right against exploitation.
