'Provide admission under RTE'

Sarvajananga Hitharakshana Vedike members have urged education department to cancel the recognition of Rainbow Public School, which has denied admission for RTE children, citing the reason of shifting school.

About six children had obtained seat under Right to Education at Rainbow Academy School, Bogadi in 2013-14.

With sudden shift over of school to new premises, the DDPI is providing education for six children selected under RTE separately. Opposing the move of DDPI, hundreds of activists, including the parents staged protest in front of Deputy Commissioner's office here on Monday.

'Conducting classes separately for six children will severely affect the growth of children. The children have to study accompanied with other children. Its high time the DDPI should transfer the six children to new premises of school or should cancel the recognition of the school,' said Rakshana Vedike President Venugopal.

“When the parents have approached DDPI HR Basappa, instead of enrolling the children to new school, he has decided to run school separately for this children. Before giving permission for closure of school the officials would have thought about the children enrolled under RTE,” he added.

Citing the reason of lack of facilities, the school has been shifted to new premises at Maratikyathanahalli Village, three km away from the Bogadi, and has been named as Rainbow Public School. When the parents have went for admission for the year 2014-15, have come to know the school has been shifted to new premises.

When the parents have asked the management of the school to provide admission in the new school under RTE, the school management has denied admission stating the school not comes under RTE for this year. And, there is no provision to transfer or Shift the children to other school under RTE, said the protestors.

“We are ready to send our wards to the new building. The school administration demand Rs 40,000 fee for admission to UKG. How is it possible for a poor parents to enroll children. With the earned little money, its hard to manage family. Then how can we bear the education expenses,” added parents.

The parents said that without any prior information the school has been closed, and they are encountering several challenges to enroll their wards back to school from last one month.
