Bangalore: Karnataka education department has announced a month-long drive against all schools that are running without affiliation. The announcement came in the wake of the arrest of the secretary of the school where a three-year-old girl was allegedly raped, on charges of cheat.
The school was visited by the officials of the education department and the status of affiliation was probed into. The kindergarten section which was being run without the approvals was ordered to be closed.
The parents will be helped in shifting their children to other private schools. The block education officials who seem to have turned the blind eye to the violations of norms will be charged.
According to the Karnataka police statement, "We have already issued notice to block education officer and also to the DDPI but as far as my knowledge goes, this BEO is new, he has only been there 3 to 4 months, after we'll get reply, we will take action."
When asked about the month long drive Karnataka police said, "In one month, we want to take up this drive. There are some 5,000 to 6,000 schools in Bangalore. So we will send a 3-man committee to check such status of affiliation and have to check the degree of violation... 100 per cent we have to take action against the management, closure of schools is one option."
