MADURAI: The district collector U Sagayam on Monday ordered an enquiry
by the Inspector of matriculation schools, Madurai, into a complaint
submitted by a dalit boy alleging that his school had failed him in
violation of government norms.

In his petition, T Alageswaran (10) son of Thavamani, has said that he
was a student of the fifth standard in Maha Nursery and Primary
School, but was unable to attend school beyond the second term due to
family problems, which led to his mother leaving their home. He has
alleged that even after he went to school, the principal of the school
Lakshmi and another staff Babu humiliated him in front of the other
students. However, he had got a seat in a bigger school for the sixth
standard, through a friend of his father, but his previous school had
refused to give him the Transfer Certificate for the purpose. They had
demanded Rs 6680 as fees to hand over the TC. Hence a complaint was
lodged with the Pudur police who contacted the school and asked them
to hand over the TC to the student. But, the petitioner has alleged
that the school has failed to promote him to the sixth standard which
was against the government norms. EOM
