Tamil Nadu | Private schools demand early RTE reimbursements

Tamil Nadu Private Schools Association has urged the State Government to not delay the reimbursement of fee for students admitted under the Right to Education Act and pay those by September every academic year.

Resolution

The Association made the demand by way of a resolution it passed at a meeting held in Coimbatore on Saturday.

It also wanted the Government to grant recognition for three years and permanent recognition for those schools that were 10 years old or more.

For other schools, the Association said the Government should give more time to comply with rules.

Syllabus

The Association said that the Government should not compel private schools to achieve the target for admitting students under the Right to Education Act, upgrade the Samacheer syllabus on a par with Plus One and Plus Two syllabi as there was a wide gap.

It also sought uniform syllabus across the country, as suggested in the draft of the National Education Policy.

Other demands

The other demands the Association made included the issue of ESI issuing notices to schools when a case in this regard was pending before courts and coming out in the open on the minimum land required for private schools, as the survival of 900 plus schools was dependent thereon.

The Association also sought reforms in the way the Government conducted the Plus Two exam – pooling of three neighbourhood schools to a centre among others.
