25% reservation for poor students in English medium schoolsThere is a rule of India govt to provide 25% reservation for the poor students who will to study in private English medium schools. The 25% reserved poor students will get the total expenditure over studies from the state and central govt. After implementing this guideline, most of the English medium school tried to enhance their fees; however Odisha School and Mass Education Minister Pratap Jena suggested to the school owners to not enhance the school fees, as the govt. will bear the whole expenses of these 25% poor students. On this regard, in current budget it was declared that central govt will bear 65% and rest by the state govt. However, state govt feels 35% is a very big burden for them; due to which Odisha School and Mass Education Minister Pratap Jena approached to central to make it 90:10%.
First of all, we've to watch when this is going to be passed by either central or state govt.
Second thing, how the 25% poor students will be counted or marked. Is it'll be according to their family income/BPL or APL card holders or any other criteria for them. This will be the prime matter, because in this concert there is also some chances of corruption in education. Let us see in the coming future. Comments please.
