TN Firm Against Misbehaviour in Online Classes

Tamil Nadu Government has decided to invoke the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act on those who misbehave during online classes. There will be a helpline for students to report instances of harassment. The government will frame guidelines to prevent sexual harassment of children in online classes after certain instances recently reported in Chennai schools, Mr MK Stalin, Chief Minister of Tamilnadu said. A committee comprising the commissioner of the school education department, police officials of the cybercrime wing and a crime against children, academicians and IT experts will be constituted. The online school recordings have to be periodically monitored by a committee consisting of the parent-teacher association of schools. A 59-year-old teacher from one of Chennai’s prestigious schools was recently arrested on suspicion of sexual harassment during online classes and charged under POCSO.
