Haryana govt should immediately open all schools, says NISA chief
National Independent Schools Alliance president Kulbhushan Sharma on Friday demanded the immediate opening of all schools from nursery to 12th standard to bring school education back on track in Haryana.
Addressing the journalists in Chandigarh, Sharma said that for the last two
years, the schools are facing the wrath of Covid-19 pandemic, and
students have already suffered a lot
“When the director of World Bank Education has said that schools should
not be closed in the name of infection, over 70% of children in the country have been affected by the closure of schools,” said Sharma.
Sharma also demand that the Haryana government should exclude the schools which take annual fee from 20,000 to 35,000 from the purview of Fee Regulation Act
“The government issued a guideline recently, in which private schools were asked to submit Form-6 online by February 1. But till now the window for filling Form 6 has not started on the portal. Hence, it is impossible to fill the Form-6 in such a short time.
Similarly, the government has given some relief in the rules related to land, giving relief to the schools running before 2003.
But the land standards for village schools and city schools are different,” he said.
