Madras HC stays Govt Order on formation of School Management Committees

The Madras High Court Bench here has stayed the operation of a Government Order issued by the School Education Department on December 26 insisting that all aided schools in Tamil Nadu constitute school management committees (SMC) for planning, monitoring and implementing the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan reported the Hindu.

Justice V. Dhanapalan granted the interim stay on a writ petition filed by Rehamania Higher Secondary School, represented by its manager and correspondent S.S. Hassan Aboobacker, at Melapalayam in Tirunelveli district.

The school claimed that the exclusion of school managements from the SMC amounted to interfering with the right of minorities to administer educational institutions.
