'Schools violating RTE to face derecognition'

All schools must extend 25 per cent of reservation to children belonging to economically backward communities under the Right to Education (RTE) Act, said Block Education officer K Jayaraj.

He was addressing a gathering at an awareness programme on Right to Information Act at the Santhosh Education Institution in the town on Wednesday.

He warned that the schools found violating the Act will face derecoginition.
He further said that admission process in the schools should be transparent and should be mentioned on notice board and websites.

He called upon the School Development and Management Committee to be active in this regard. They should oversee the process to ensure that the recommendations of the Act are implemented in letter and spirit at the schools.

Those willing to obtain admission under the RTE can apply between January 7 and February 5. The applications should have details of caste and income certificate, residential proof and such.
