Pvt schools flout order

Private schools seemed non-serious about the Directorate of Education’s order to fix boards bearing details of education officers at the entrance of their institutions. Some of them have not complied with the order whose last date was Friday.

Though private schools were found saying ‘they came to know about it only on Thursday’.When Deccan Herald asked Greenfields Public School in Dilshad Garden in the evening why there is no board at the entrance gate of the institution, an employee said, “We got to know about the order on yesterday (Thursday). Anyway, today is Friday and by Monday, the board will be fixed.”

The education officer of zone six in Dilshad Garden said the school falls under his area. “We have asked the private schools to comply with the orders and if they are not then DoE should take the action,” he said.

A senior official with in the DoE said the department will look into the matter and take action against those found flouting the rule. An aid of education minister said the issue will be taken up seriously.

The board was not found at the entrance of the Salwan Public School in Rajinder Nagar. The staff present at the school said they did not know about such an order.

On Wednesday, the DoE had ordered all education officers to get a flex board fixed with their names and numbers at the entrance of the schools falling in their zone.

“The education officers should ensure that grievances of parents are redressed in time,” the order states. “Education officers of all zones are directed to get a flex board fixed at the main entrance of each unaided private recognised school falling in their jurisdiction displaying their landline and mobile numbers,” the order says.

According to DoE, the flex board should be of a minimum five-feet high and its base colour must be blue. “It should have the name of education officer, zone number, officer address, office telephone number (landline) and mobile number,” the order says.

The step has been taken to crackdown on schools flouting the new guidelines. The DoE has issued show cause notices to schools found flouting the guidelines on Saturday last.
