Kerala Gvt to Reimburse Cost of Education to Economically Backward Section

The Kerala High Court asked the government to consider reimbursing the cost of education borne by those from economically backward sections, for getting their wards educated in the self-financing schools affiliated to the CBSE and ICSE boards.

The court said that only a section of the people is able to afford education for their children in the expensive private schools. So the government could think of a reimbursement as it is not running schools affiliated to the CBSE or ICSE boards. By providing financial assistance to the students belonging to economically backward sections, the government would save on the expenditure for opening new schools for such students.
