STATING THAT various new rules by the School Education Department are aimed towards eliminating the existence of private schools, the Private Schools’ Association of MP is gearing up to oppose the new rules including that of inclusion of term marks in final results and conduction of class IX and XI exams on board pattern.
The Association has convened a meeting on Wednesday at the Coffee House at Board Office square at 4 pm to decide on the future course of action.
The ‘anti-private school’ issues that are to be discussed during the meeting include board pattern exams for class IX and XI, inclusion of term marks for class IX and XI students in final results, valuation of results of class IX and XI at block level, issue of surprise inspections and others.
The Association president Surendra Singh Baghel has said that the department is slowly increasing the pressure on students in the name of improvement of results and coming out with such rules that threaten the existence of the private schools.
He said Association could consider proposal of including term marks for class X and XII students. The association is also opposing Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education’s decision to consider the students of those schools with temporary affiliations as private students.
