Tiruchirapalli, Nov 15 (UNI) Tamil Nadu Transport Minister K N Nehru today called upon the management of private schools to function within the rules and regulations prescribed by the government.
He was participating in the centenary celeberation of former chief minister C N Annadurai, the international year of education and 35th state conference and presentation of Nallasiriyar Virudhu, organised by the Tamil Nadu Matriculation Schools Association and Tamil Nadu Nursery and Primary Schools association here.
Addressing the gathering, Mr Nehru pointed out that the teachers training institutes (TTI) run by Private trusts and individuals were admitting students more than the strength sanctioned by the Government and collecting a huge sum as donation.
At the time of final examination, the government had allowed the sanctioned students strength to sit for the examinations, while some students were not allowed and they were the ultimate sufferer, he said and wanted the private school management to desist from such malpractices.
Stating that the state government was ready to solve the problems faced by private school managements, the minister sought their cooperation to help the government to carry out development works for educational institutions.
He said the state government had allotted Rs 8,400 crore during the current fiscal for implementing various educational activities.
Forest Minister N Selvaraj, speaking on the occasion, wanted the private school managements to accord equal importance for Tamil medium of instruction in their schools.
