Private schools across the country observed BLACK DAY in protest of discriminatory policies against safety of teachers, principal, school management, drivers and support staffs. More than 60,000 schools across the country affiliated with state, CBSE and ICSE boards observed Black Day on the call of NISA. Schools from Delhi, UP, MP, Bihar, Assam, Nagaland, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Kashmir, Himachal, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra, Kerala and Tamil Nadu had maximum participation.
Teachers, drivers, school’s management are behind the bar and schools have closed down in the name of safety. Students’ education is in stake. NISA and all its member associations have sent a representation to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and expecting to get his kind attention to bring Teachers Safety Act and reform the education system which is not safe for teachers and school management.
The National Independent Schools Alliance (NISA) is a platform that brings together budget private schools (BPS) from across the country to give them a unified voice to address their concerns about regulatory challenges and to facilitate quality improvement in schools. As of today, NISA represents 60,000 schools from 30 state associations which cater to the needs of 22 million children at an average of 400 children per school.
