CBSE can’t dictate private unaided schools: NISA
For harassing schools and imposing penalty of Rs 50,000 for not furnishing confidential information, National Independent Schools Alliance (NISA) is likely to move court if the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) fails to withdrawal of the illegal circular immediately that imposed fine for not furnishing information.
“The basic purpose of setting up the CBSE is to conduct examinations, provide certifications and maintain the standard of education in affiliated schools. However, the board is continually deviating from its purpose and continuously intervening in the operations of the schools,” shared Kulbhushan Sharma, national president, NISA.
He added that sometimes the board tries to intervene in the appointment of the principals, else pressurises for installing of CCTV in school buses and that CBSE is going beyond its jurisdiction and encroaching into constitutional rights of schools. It is known that CBSE has issued a circular CBSE/AffJ4D/Circular/2017 seeking confidential data pertaining to the day-to-day operations of all affiliated schools. Dr. Amit Chandra, National convener of NISA, says that according to the bylaws, the role of CBSE is limited to conducting the examination.
