New Delhi, Jul 8, 2015
Many minority run educational institutions have misused the privilege of autonomy granted to them by the Constitution, feels an RSS affiliated body, which is now considering legal options to change the criterion that defines such institutions.
The Bhartiya Shikshan Mandal, an RSS body working in the field of education, also seeks setting up of a "statutory autonomous authority" comprising largely of educationists and teachers for regulating teaching in the country.
Speaking at a press interaction here, Mukul Kanitkar, joint organising secretary of the Mandal, said that minority institutions were given autonomy so that the spread of education among these communities would increase.
"But there are many minority institutions whose management comprises minorities but among students the number of majority community is more. Despite that, they don't implement RTE, they don't implement government's public welfare policies. Such misuse has happened," he told reporters.
