The Chhattisgarh High Court has granted permission for 72 model schools to be run under the Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) mode. The High Court yesterday revoked its earlier stay to the state Government’s decision to adopt PPP mode for 72 schools running under the Mukhyamantri Adarsh Vidyalaya Yojna.
The stay had been granted in response to a PIL objecting to the PPP mode, an official of Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Mission (Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan) said in statement today.
During the hearing yesterday, the High Court at Bilaspur withdrew its earlier stay and allowed to run schools under PPP mode in the development blocks which are backward in terms of education, he said.
The HC also directed the School Education Department to ensure compliance of Rights of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act so that chidren from underprivileged sections too could get into the model schools, he said. These schools will have CBSE curriculum with English as the medium of instruction.
