The order says schools should spend 95 p.c. of earning on improving standards

NELLORE: The All-India Youth Federation (AIYF) has asked the Government to implement its order with regard to primary education (GO 1 of 1994 ) in letter and spirit.

The GO, which stipulates that all school managements should spend 95 per cent of their earnings only to improve academic standards, has been kept in abeyance for a variety of reasons.

“The time has come now for the Government to implement the order with a view to checking private school managements from commercialising education in the State,” AIYF State council general secretary G. Eswaraiah told reporters on Thursday.

Moreover, the Government should also take private school managements to task for violating norms on many fronts besides initiating action against all those District and Mandal Education Officers, who failed to check managements from collecting donations from parents. “Parents face problems arranging for donations,” he said.

The AIYF decided to stage dharnas at all district collectorates in the State on June 30 demanding filling of 2.5 lakh vacancies. The AIYF leader alleged that the Congress had failed to implement its election manifesto and unemployed youth were the most affected in the three-year Congress ‘misrule’. He wondered as to why the unemployment dole promised for jobless youth in the Congress manifesto had not yet been implemented in the State.

Protest plan

The AIYF would conduct classes for its activists from June 23-27 in Hyderabad. It would also lay siege to all AP Vaidya Vidhana Parishad offices in July demanding quality medicare for common man. The federation would also conduct ‘cycle jata’ in September and cover 1,400 km to highlight various issues, Mr. Eswaraiah added.
