0 14

Asserting that NCERT’s gender-neutral teacher training manual will deny equal rights to children of diverse biological needs, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) sought rectification of “anomalies” in the document.

It also claimed the text of the manual suggests gender-neutral infrastructure for children that does not commensurate with their gender realities and basic needs.

The new manual for teachers aims to educate and sensitise them towards the LGBTQ+ community and different gender orientations.

It highlights practices and strategies to make schools sensitive and inclusive for transgender and gender non-conforming children.
