Pvt Schools Say They Will Think About It,
In a major move towards implementation of the Right to Education [RTE] Act, the Patna administration on Sunday directed all CBSE/ ICSE-affiliated schools in the district to reserve 25% of the available seats in class 1/ nursery sections for children belonging to weaker sections of the society.
Patna DM Jitendra Kumar Sinha issued the directive at a meeting with principals/ representatives of these schools. As many as 75 schools were represented in the meet. Official sources said and added they were also directed to inform the administration about the number of seats available in these sections in their respective schools.
We will take a call on it later, Notre Dame Principal Sister Tessy told on Sunday evening. Loyola’s Brother Felix and Don Bosco’s Mary Alphonso echoed Sister Tessy. Very genuine and law ful stand taken by state govt towards weakers section of children for good education, must appreciated, but implementations looks no easy.
