KUSMA to move court against REA

The spokesperson of the organisation also noted that they would challenge a few provisions of the Act in the court of law. "We are planning to move the court soon. Some of the clauses mentioned in the Act can create impediments for the normal functioning of the schools," said GS Sharma, President, KUSMA.

Sharma was addressing the media after a meeting of its members here. Members from various parts of the State attended the function which analysed certain sections of the Act asking unaided schools to pay salaries equivalent to basic government pay scale.

"Matching salary to government scale is not feasible as it entails steep increase in the fee structure beyond the paying capacity of lower middle class parents. In turn, managements would progressively improve the salaries of teachers and administrative staff," said Sharma.

Textbooks

In view of the confusion in the production and distribution of textbooks for classes from grades 1 to 10 and a consequent inordinate delay in the supply of the books to schools, a proposal was mooted to take up the responsibility for the production and distribution of textbooks for the ensuing academic year. The conclave also saw a session on the various provisions of the Right to Education Act.
