Convent of Jesus & Mary (CJM) girls high school Vadodara has suspended six students of Classes X and XII for a week for allegedly using ‘abusive’ language on social networking site Facebook. It is alleged that the suspended girls were found using ‘abusive’ language on the school’s Facebook page while commenting on the selection process of the head girl.

The controversy began when some students alleged that a teacher and some school authorities had conspired with some other students to rig the election of the head girl. The issue escalated after students backing the elected candidate replied using strong language. The matter was brought to the notice of the school’s principal who reported it to the district education officer S P Chaudhary.

Acording to reports, the district education officer has already ordered an inquiry into the incident. “We have initiated action against the students, but in such cases it’s the responsibility of the parents to keep a check on the students when they are using such networking sites and also using objectionable languages there,” Mary Dsouza, principal, CJM School Vadodara, has said.
