Monthly Newsletter | July 2019 | Volume 03


To all our readers...

 

With pleasure I present the third edition of the School Serv newsletter to our readers.

 

All eyes remain on the budget that will be allocated to education in the upcoming union budget 2019-20, but that lies with the future. Currently, the National Education Policy promulgation is deservedly making headlines. NEP has remained in news for both promises it made and the controversies it created. The clauses that were disputed are being negotiated upon and the final resolution will only come with the final draft, submission of inputs for which will close on July 31st.

 

Other important subjects that garnered attention pertain to the issue of vacancy of the RTE Quota seats in the private schools.

 

I hope that the current issue will prove informative for all you readers. I am inclined to request you all to take time to participate in a dialogue so that this platform we have devised evolve in a way it is intended to. I believe my appeal will bear fruit.

 

Happy Schooling !
