Inspection of RTE infrastructural norms compliance by schools to begin soon

Views: 806

The primary education department of the Kolhapur zilla parishad (ZP) has formed 12 inspection squads in the district to improve infrastructural norms under the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2009 in private schools.

The squad comprises a block development officer (BDO), a block education officer (BEO) and an education expert, who will visit the respective private schools in their talukas. The squads will have to submit their report to the primary education officer by April 30.

The district has as many as 280 private schools of which 145 have complied with all the 10 RTE infrastructural norms, including boundary walls, toilets, water facilities and kitchen sheds. The remaining 135 schools too need to comply with the norms at the earliest. We are sure this inspection drive will act as a catalyst for that said Kolhapur ZP primary education officer Smita Gaud.

On the likely action against schools that fail to comply with the norms, Gaud  added that many of the schools were not able to comply with the norms for a year. We need to take a review of the situation and identify exactly where they are failing. A report regarding the same will be sent to the state directorate of primary education officials for their take on the issue. The higher authorities will then decide the nature and quantum of action against errant schools.
