The Nagpur Education department has given a serious wrath to the schools which had denied admissions under Right to Education (RTE) Act. The deputy director of education of Nagpur Division, Anil Pardhi issued a show cause notice to 291 schools in the city which have refused to take admissions of the students who come under the 25% quota set by the RTE. The schools were provided with a deadline to answer concerning the same and failing which would cause them dear and de-recognizing the schools were on the cards. Apart from the 181 schools, on which the decision is pending by the education department, 110 schools have submitted to the department and have started taking admission of the students.
Those 181 schools which have not yet started taking admissions after the showcause notice would face certain action that would be taken up by the department of education. DDE Pardhi is regarded as the man of action and he has a clean image and a face of an action man. His decisions have made quite a few changes in the overall education system and have raised many a school’s performance.
Education department insisted the schools to intake students both from primary and pre-primary level under the RTE Act. He even further said to schools that at first the schools should initiate admitting students at their original entry level while the secondary level could get discussed later and resolved mutually.
