AISF threatens to close down all unrecognised private schools in Manipur
The All India Students Federation (AISF) on Sunday threatened that all unrecognised schools currently running in Manipur will soon be closed down.
“The federation is all-prepared to shut down all such schools across the state,” AISF state secretary Khundrakpam Rameshwor announced during a press meet at the federation office here.
The left-wing student union leader also noted that four attached-private schools have been found functioning without proper infrastructure in Imphal East and Imphal West and drew the attention of the state government in initiating action against these institutes.
Rameshwor warned of going over the state-run schools allowing attachment to such unrecognised institutes in the state.
He said the state has increasingly seen an emerging trend of mushrooming of private schools as students opt for private schools for better education as the government-run schools provide poor quality education.
In July last, Manipur Assembly passed two bills to regulate establishment and management of private schools and coaching in the state.
But, the Manipur Private School (Registration and Regulation) Bill, 2017, and Manipur Coaching Institute (Control and Regulation) Bill, 2017 had triggered strong protest from private schools. They dubbed the Manipur Private School (Registration and Regulation) Bill 2017 half-baked and irrational bill.
