Education Department takes unaided schools to task

Educate girls for free, unaided schools toldTaking unaided schools to task, the education department has sent them circulars, asking them to apply for the approval of their newly appointed school staff; following which the schools will have to face de-recognition. Furthermore, the unaided schools have also been asked to provide free education to girl students till they complete standard 12. Faced with this situation, the unaided school forum have recently sent a legal notice to principal secretary of school education. S.C. Kedia, secretary of unaided school forum said, “The department asked the unaided schools to apply for approval of staff and to provide free education to girl students. We have slapped them with a legal notices on 19 January and 2 March this year respectively. How can they force the unaided schools to follow their instructions when these schools are not asking for any grant from them. Most of the schools were upset over this.” B.D Phadtare, deputy director, school education, said, “The reason behind asking approval of staff from unaided schools is to decide their school fees. This approval will not only help the non-teaching staff but also to teachers from unaided schools. If tomorrow any injustice happens with any teacher or non-teaching staff in these schools, they will at least have some proof to show that they are approved from education department. On top of that the unaided schools will not show fake staff and ask more fees from parents.”
