Directive to pre-elementary level schools

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 13 - With a view to streamline the operation of un-aided private schools imparting education at pre-elementary level and bring their functioning in line with the directions laid down by the judiciary, the Kamrup Metro district administration has directed all such schools in the city to submit their details and get registered with the office of the district�s Deputy Commissioner.

An order in this regard was issued today by Dr M Angamuthu, District Magistrate of Kamrup Metro.

�... it has been brought to light that there are no laid down guidelines for un-aided private schools imparting education at pre-elementary stage i.e., at the stage of nursery and kindergarten (KG). Such schools have mushroomed all over the city without adhering to any objective norms which may be detrimental and at times deprive a child from his/her right to education,� said the District Magistrate.

He added that childhood care and education of children until they complete the age of six years has been made a directive principle.

�... keeping in mind Article 45 of the Constitution and keeping the spirit of Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 and in the absence of statutory rules or administrative guidelines, a few directions were issued by the Hon�ble Gauhati High Court in PIL No 94/2013,� he added.

�... to effectively implement the directions of the Hon�ble Gauhati High Court... do hereby direct all pre-primary un-aided private schools running within Kamrup Metro district to submit their details in prescribed format for registration in the office of the Deputy Commissioner, Kamrup Metro district,� said the order.

It added that the format for registration is available in the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Kamrup Metro and also in the district�s official website.
