After receiving the order state government and divisional deputy collector to curtail fees, the directors of educational institutions who run English medium schools are very unhappy.
While expressing their anguish on Saturday, they criticised the government’s decision. They have also warned to launch agitation against the government.
Addressing a press con ference on Saturday, the founder president of Maharashtra English School Trustee Association (MESTA) Sanjayrao Tayde Patil alleged that the government did not take the directors of education institutions into confidence while taking this decision.
The government in a way has done contempt of the Supreme Court’s verdict. He said that the government did not take various issues into consideration while taking the decision.
The divisional deputy director of education of Nagpur Dr Vaishali Jamdar has issued an order of lowering down fees by 25 per cent. This decision was taken one sided. Dr Jamdar did not consult senior officers of the education department before making the decision. He demanded that Dr Jamdar should be suspended and warned of an agitation against her.
Tayde Patil also came down heavily on minister of state for school education Bacchu Kadu. He said that Bacchu Kadu did not fulfill the duty of being minister of state. “On one hand Kadu speaks about taking action against schools citing guidelines, but his own school is violating rules blatantly.
