Class 10 students of eight unaccredited schools of Karnataka were provided relief by the state’s High Court (HC) via its interim order directing education department officials to issue hall tickets to them.
Justice P Krishnabhat heard the writ petition filed by these eight schools in this regard. He issued an interim order directing the commissioner of the Department of Public Education and the Director of the Karnataka High school Examination Board to issue the hall tickets on an immediate basis.
The counsel of the petitioner said that these eight schools were registered under sections 30, 31, and 38 of the Karnataka Education Act, 1978. A renewal of their accreditation has been suggested. He also stated that the action taken by the Commissioner of the Public Education Department had taken away the rights of the students, and the prohibition to download the hall tickets had affected their mental health.
Shantin Niketana High School in Vivekanagar, Shanti Niketana High School in Nilasandra, Eejipura’s Modern Education Society, Brilliant High School in HSR Layout, Bommanahalli’s Johnson High School, and Richmond Town’s SN English School, are included in the list of the unrecognized schools in question.
Commissioners and directors have been instructed by the HC to give admission letters to the students of these schools to enable them to write their class 10 board exams.
