The Government of Maharashtra has decided to open 100 international schools to provide quality education to students.
School Education Minister Vinod Tawde has announced it in the State Assembly session in Nagpur. The announcement has been made on the same day; the government adopted the amendment in the Maharashtra Self Financed Schools Act. The amendment will allow private companies and the corporate sector to open schools on no-profit-no-loss basis.
Tawde said, “Even today, private players have made inroads in school education. We have only simplified the process.” He assured that the interest of students, including fee regulation, would be protected, and state language Marathi would be promoted in these schools.
According to the State Government, the decision of opening the 100 international schools by the government will help the children who cannot afford similar education in private schools.
