The National Council for Combating Discrimination has fined a school in Romania on Friday for discriminating a pupil suffering of Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), which is a first for Romania.
It is ”I.L. Caragiale” school from Pitesti, where in 2016 more 7th grade pupils had staged a protest with their parents in protest against a colleague diagnosed with ADHD.
The pupils protested in the school lobby, displaying messages against the allegedly aggressive boy, asking that the boy should be transferred to another school, arguing the boy is physically and verbally aggressing them and even threatening them with death.
Two years after the incident, CNCD decided to fine the school and the Arges School Inspectorate for the school headmaster statements and for the inspectorate lack of initiative. Fines worth RON 5,000 and five warnings have been given.
