New Delhi, June 06: Soon private schools may have to drop the word 'public' from their names.

A key clause in the draft national education policy by the K Kasturirangan Committee states that, " private schools will not use the 'public' in their names, in any communication, documentation or declaration of status. This change will be effected by all private schools within three years. Public schools will only be those which are funded publicly."
