first_imgLate Congress leader, ND Tiwari with his son Rohit Tiwari were embroiled in a legal paternity battle for six yearsGoogle ImagesRohit Shekhar Tiwari, the son of late Congress veteran ND Tiwari, died under mysterious circumstances in New Delhi on Tuesday. He was declared brought dead at Max Hospital in Saket.According to police, a call was made to the PCR from his Defence Colony residence that he was bleeding profusely from his nose.”We received an emergency call from the residence of Rohit Shekhar Tiwari at 4.41 pm this afternoon. An ambulance brought him to Max Hospital, Saket, where he was declared brought dead at the hospital emergency. As per the established procedure, we have informed the authorities. We express condolences at the passing away of Mr Tiwari,” said a statement issued by the Max Hospital.Rohit’s mother Ujjwala said that he was depressed for a long time. “There are a few people responsible for the same. I will reveal the names of the people who caused him depression,” Rohit’s mother said.The initial police probe has revealed that no external injuries were there on Rohit’s body.Who was Rohit Shekhar Tiwari?The 40-year-old, a resident of South Delhi, came to the limelight through a long drawn paternity battle with his biological father ND Tiwari, who was the former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. ND Tiwari had refused to accept Rohit as his son which made the battle hog the media limelight for years. In 2007, Rohit had filed a paternity suit against ND Tiwari which was withdrawn due to some technical errors. He filed it again the following year. It took the veteran Congress leaders six years to accept Rohit as his biological son after continuous denials.The former UP Chief Minister even refused to give his blood samples for DNA profiling although both Rohit and his mother Ujjwala had submitted their samples in 2012. The late political leader even did not acknowledge the various state court rulings against him and the matter eventually went to the Supreme Court.Finally, ND Tiwari submitted his blood samples at his residence in Dehradun in 2013 which proved his biological link with Rohit. He ended up accepting Rohit as his son. ND Tiwari died last year at the age of 93.Rohit, during the years of his paternity battle with his father, had famously said, “I am not the illegitimate son. He is my illegitimate father. And his troubles have just begun.” Former Union Minister ND TiwariIANSlast_img read more

Black Students More Likely to Face Discipline Less Likely to Receive Treatment

first_imgjhunter@afro.comTwitter: @hunter_jonathan Black students face harsher punishments than their peers and are less likely to receive mental health attention for their problems, according to new research.According to the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights, Black students are expelled and suspended three times more often than White students. And a new study published in the journal Sociology of Education found that school districts with large Black populations were less likely to consider offering counseling services compared to predominantly White school districts. School districts in which a large portion of the students were Black would usually report incidents to law enforcement officers—not the case in majority White school districts.The study, entitled “The Social Structure of Criminalized and Medicalized School Data” examined how “district level racial/ethnic and socioeconomic compositions” affect the method of discipline implemented on students.  The study was conducted by David Ramey, an assistant professor of sociology and justice at Penn State University. Ramey examined data from 60,000 schools in more than 6,000 school districts, and concluded that that the increased incarceration rates in minority communities results in a criminalized view of students when they misbehave.According to the study, unlike White parents, the families of Black children are less likely to blame their behavior on medical or psychological causes.“The legacy of the Tuskegee experiments has left many Black families skeptical of medical and mental research, particularly contested and controversial issues like ADHD,” Ramey wrote in his report.Ramey also noted that research suggests that teachers view Black boys’ misbehavior as the result of bad parenting and cultural deficiencies, and are less likely to attribute minority students’ acting up to a behavior disorder.“White kids tend to get viewed as having ADHD, or having some sort of behavioral problem, while Black kids are viewed as being unruly and unwilling to learn,” said Ramey.According to The Daily Best, Black students with learning disabilities are three times more likely to be suspended than White students with learning disabilities. Ramey suggests that the current discipline structure of American schools is flawed.“There’s been a real push toward school safety and there’s been a real push for schools to show they are being accountable,” he wrote. “But, any zero-tolerance policy or mandatory top-down solutions might be undermining what would be otherwise good efforts at discipline, and not establishing an environment based around all the options available.”last_img read more
