Representation of elite private schools and government schools are always ensured while making education policies. But budget private schools are kept away from this process, said NISA
GN Bureau | January 6, 2017
National Independent Schools Alliance (NISA) has demanded active representation of budget private schools in the policy making process.
NISA members on Thursday met Anil Swarup, secretary, department of school education and literacy, and raised various issues including autonomy of schools, return of Inspector Raj, RTE reimbursement, no detention and teacher's eligibility took precedence.
Kulbhushan Sharma, NISA president, said, "Representation of elite private schools and government schools are always ensured while making education policies. But budget private schools which have more than 90% stake in education sector are kept away from this process. This is the reason rules go against BPS most of the times."
Rajesh Malhotra, vice president, NISA and co-ordinator of its Delhi chapter said, "The RTE prescribes the schools to renew their licenses every 3 years which is forcing the return of Inspector Raj in this sector. We have to make endless rounds to the authorities' office which is giving more leeway to corruption."
NISA represents 55,000 schools from 23 state associations.
