Starting education in an educational institution, the child enters a group of peers and gets acquainted with his first teachers. In addition to the study of new subjects itself, there are many more situations in which the child finds himself for the first time and may be confused. What rights of the student should the educational institution ensure in order for the child to be comfortable in the school curriculum? Let’s figure it out together with the lawyers of PRAVOCARD.
The most important and simplest right of a student is his right to education. The teacher cannot deprive the student of the opportunity to attend those other lessons, even if the teacher has difficulties in communicating with the student. In the event of serious incidents, the issue of attending classes can only be decided by the head teacher or principal of the school.
Unfortunately, sometimes there are situations when the teacher can punish the student in the presence of the whole class or hold a public trial with the student. Such a teaching process can be traumatic for the child and is a violation of his rights. After all, a child, like all citizens of Russia, has a legally enshrined right to respect for human dignity, and this must not be forgotten!
Each student has the right to contact the class teacher, school psychologist or school principal to discuss problems that have arisen in the learning process. The child has the right to receive assistance, receive clarifications and answers to questions that arise for him and his parents.
The student has the right to be provided with learning conditions that guarantee the protection of his health. If, for medical reasons, full-time education at school is not possible, then remote classes should be organized.
The student’s right to rest during the learning process is legally enshrined. There are breaks between lessons and holidays. Weekend homework has been canceled for elementary grades.
Educational institutions often offer students additional, optional classes. However, the student has the right to independently decide on attending these lessons. The teacher does not have the right to force the student to attend additional sections or circles that are not included in the curriculum.
Forbidden by law and forcing students to work, which is not provided for by the school curriculum. The child can decide on his own to support the school and help with his work, or to refuse. At the same time, consent to work must also be provided by the student’s parents.
The entire process of teaching a student should be aimed not only at obtaining knowledge by the child, but also at organizing comfortable conditions for the student. The use of physical or psychological pressure by a teacher is unacceptable! If in the process of teaching a teacher violates the rights of a student, then he should be removed from teaching.
