The National Association for Parents and Students Rights (NAPSR) alleged that about 21 schools based in the city are running with an expired affiliation. They said that the department concerned is sleeping over the matter.
The association further stated that the education department, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), and State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (SCPCR) have failed to rise to the occasion to stop such schools from running. They further alleged that repeated complaints have failed to yield any result on the matter. They called for stern actions in the interest of the students.
The association’s president, Arif Khan said, “The matter is related to the interests of the children and their future. It is an imperative for all concerned to take stern steps to stop such practice,” he said.
He further said that they would write a letter to the Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, the State Education Minister, SCPCR, education department and CBSE regional office on Monday, informing them of what is going on.
“If they continue to sleep over the matter, we would do something ourselves to stop it,” he added.
