Therieh, member secretary NSLSA said that teachers needed to know the rights of the child to be able to protect the children. She said that to deal with the issue of children inside the classroom teachers needed to be aware of the relevant portion of laws made for the students. Pointing out that 44% of children face sexual abuse, she urged the teachers to identify the students and the problems they were going through. Mezivolu T.
