51 ‘unauthorized’ private unaided schools have been identified in the Bengaluru South and North education districts.
Story so far: The Department of Public Instruction, in an ongoing effort to identify schools operating illegally has discovered 51 schools. The department has also sought explanations from the schools.
- If the explanations submitted by the schools are not satisfactory, they will be shut down.
- Students of schools that have been closed due to these reasons have been shifted to nearby schools.
No renewals: Officials stated that the schools are functioning without renewing their affiliations thereby violating the Karnataka Education Act. Some schools have also shifted their location without notifying the department. Additionally, some schools have been teaching syllabi of other boards without possessing a no-objection certificate.
