Bombay HC comes to aid of girl with learning disability

Mumbai, Aug 23 (IBNS): The Bombay High Court on Tuesday directed the Maharashtra's State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education to pass a girl with learning disabilities, according to media reports.

The girl was detained in SSC because she had failed to obtain minimum marks in an optional subject, Information and Communication Technology.

However, the Court ruled that in keeping with the state's policy to support students with special needs or learning disabilities, the Board should consider Bhamisha Singh's satisfactory performance in the compulsory papers, award her the minimum marks required to pass in the subject and declare her as having passed her SSC exams.
