Shivamogga | Govt schools facing student shortage due to RTE: MLA

Shivamogga: JDS MLA YSV Datta said implementation of Right to Education (RTE) Act in Karnataka has pushed many government schools on the verge of closure.

Speaking at a programme of Private School Teacher’s Forum at Shivamogga on Tuesday, Datta, said the state government has been paying around Rs 500 crores to private schools every year for admitting students under RTE quota. This has led to the shortage of student s in government schools. Several states have not implemented the Act to protect government schools there, but in Karnataka, the situation is completely opposite, Datta said urging the government to reconsider its stand on RTE. He also urged the government to review its faulty rules framed for regulating private educational institutions.
