  1. It’s the teacher who can mend any deviant student. Parents have given up & for reasons, find themselves helpless. Here, the school can rescue a student going the other way..Schools cannot & should not refuse admission to such students. The order must be revoked instantly, otherwise you are setting a bad precedence. The CEO has not taken a good step, it’s mere cowardice wh ich our brave teachers have been ordered to follow. Schools are not for the better students only. Remember, you cannot escape responsibility
