To Streamline Quality Education UP Govt Approves New, Toughened Standards For Private Schools
Lucknow, January 3 (TNA) In what seems to be a serious move to standardise and streamline quality education in private schools, getting recognition from UP Board would not come easy. This, as the proposed new standards and conditions, have been approved by the government.
The government has given a green signal after rejecting the suggestions and objections brought by the board regarding the new rules saying that they are not justified. Under the new conditions, now 3000 square meters of land will be required to open a school in the urban area, which was only 650 square meters earlier.
Similarly, 6000 square meters of land will be required in rural areas, which was earlier 2000 square meters. Apart from this, the deposit amount has also been increased manifold. Along with this, it has also been made necessary to have smart class, computer class and various resources.
According to an order issued by Principal Secretary Secondary Education Deepak Kumar, these changes are being set for quality education under the minimum standard National Education Policy-2020. That's why the proposal to amend the regulations of the Board of Secondary Education has been approved to give recognition to the schools without finance.
The Government has given instructions to the Chairman and Secretary of the Board of Secondary Education, Uttar Pradesh that the notification of standards and conditions should be published in the Gazette as per provision in Section-16(2) of the Intermediate Education Act-1921.
