The State Government has prepared ground to shut down 330 unrecognised schools operating in Krishna district. Criminal cases would be booked against the managements, if the unrecognised schools were opened after summer vacation, District Education Officer (DEO) D. Devananda Reddy warned.
The DEO said that in all 220 unrecognised schools were there in Krishna district and 110 schools were running in Vijayawada city. The district administration would close down all the unrecognised schools as per Right to Education Act, he said. Stating that the parents would face trouble, if their children were admitted in unrecognised institutions, Mr. Reddy asked them to admit their wards in recognised schools only.
The list of the unrecognised schools has been displayed in the Deputy Education Officer's office in the district and a copy of the list was also uploaded on to www.dyeovijayawada.yolasite.com, for giving information to the public.
Besides, the officials would enlighten the people through media and brochures, he said.
