Now the situation seams to be as the schools, government and the poor children are caught between them. With only a single week left for schools to get registered under the Tight To Education (RTE) Act, most of them are still regretting away from this.
According to the sources, among the 1000 schools in Bangalore North, only 375 have approached the department to be recognized under the RTE. Similarly out of 270 schools in Bangalore rural, only 81 private schools have volunteered to register.
The official sources of RTE said "The registration is under process and we are hoping that all register by October 31, 2012. Our BEO's are keeping track of the registered and unregistered schools and action will be taken against those who fail to register by October 31. We are doubtful about the schools which refused ti take RTE students for the academic year 2012-13. We are keeping an eye on such schools too."
For the schools, there are one too many issues to be sorted out, like free reimbursement, uniforms and so on. HV Venkateshappa, DDPI Bangalore rural said "By this time, we were expecting all schools to comply with the order".
Well, with just a week to go, we shall soon get to know the status of schools that have been registered and not registered to the RTE Act. But still, the questions remains as, Why other schools (Remaining schools that have not yet registered) are stepping back?
