Some more about special education

I have been writing about a child with special needs whom the formal education system in the form of public schools in Delhi have been giving a difficult time, for some time.

But there is hope yet, and it comes from an unlikely source. The child was finally removed to a government school which is usually looked down upon. The teacher now only pushed the child to perform better but actually restored his faith in himself and he has actually performed reasonably well in class and been sent up to the next class. So much for our public school/private school divide.
