Corporate schools make inroads in districts

Staff Reporter

KARIMNAGAR: Thanks to the invasion of corporate schools in various parts of Karimnagar, several traditional and old private schools are on the verge of closure due to dwindling numbers of enrolment of children this academic year.

The private educational institutions have alleged that the district educational authorities have accorded permission haphazardly for more private schools in town without considering availability of basic requirements and infrastructure.

While most parents are shifting their children to Hyderabad for quality education and more exposure, the rural masses have started showing more interest in government schools following the introduction of English as the medium of education.

There are several instances of villages in Sircilla, Mustabad and other mandals in the district passing resolutions to enrol their children only in government schools and oppose private schools.

Dwindling numbers

In some of the old reputed private schools, the student strength had dwindled considerably causing concern among the managements.

They said that in the Godavarikhani coal belt alone about 50 schools closed due to non-availability of students.

He also said that parents preferred to send their kids to government schools owing to the frequent bandhs of private education institutions because of the student and political organizations.

He reminded that during the last academic year there were 35 bandhs due to Telangana agitations.

Wrong methods

He said that the government was also terrorizing the rural masses with the cancellation of ration card, non-release of pensions and denial of house sites, if they did not send their children to government schools and instead chose private educational institutions.

He also alleged that some private educational institutions, which were resorting to illegal practices to secure top marks in the SSC examinations, were making hay while sun shines by claiming to be reputed institutions of education.
