Minister for General Education V. Sivankutty has asked the Joint Commissioner of Examinations to look into two complaints in connection with admission of children to schools and submit a report.

The complaints have been raised by two parents about a school in Thrissur and another in the State capital.

One of the complaints alleged that the school Principal spoke to the mother of a child in an insulting manner during her visits to the school in connection with the admission.

Another pertained to reluctance of the head of a school to admit a child with communication issues to upper primary.
