Schooling without learning
Contrary to popular perception, the vast majority of private lakh schools in India are low-speed facilities. Only about 16,000 of them are ‘elite’ secondary schools affiliated with the Indian Council of Secondary Education and the Central Board of Secondary Education. According to the National Survey of 2014, the average rate in rural India was Rs. 300 per month and the average tariff in urban India was Rs. 416 per month for all private primary schools and high private and low costs taken together. However, there are variations between states; In Uttar Pradesh, the average share in rural and urban India was Rs. 117 and Rs. 250 per month, respectively.
However, in public schools, per student spending on teacher salaries are alone around Rs. 1,300 per month. Meanwhile, children at private school budget achievement levels are not worse (and perhaps a little better) than those in public schools, having adapted their family history.
Despite a better value for money (learn unit cost), thousands of private schools with low rates are forced to close in India. According to media reports and investigations on the right to information, by March 2014, about 4,355 private schools were closed and another 15,083 had received notices of closure, which affects the rights of education almost 39 lakh children .
The reason: the requirement of the right to the Education Act (TEN) would require all private schools to obtain government recognition in accordance with the rules set out in the TEN RTE Law and State Act. By good measures, many additional conditions were added in government orders “recognition” United (GO). For example, a U.P. GO On May 8, 2013, it notifies about 40 different conditions that a private school must meet to obtain recognition.
Simultaneously with the closure of private schools, many government schools are also closed due to lack of demand from dysfunctional schools where teachers are often absent. Meanwhile, the population of children in school age increases by 3.8% per year, according to the 2001 and 2011 censuses.
