A committee to decide the Pratibhashali Shikshak will be constituted in each taluka comprising taluka primary education officer (TPEO) as the convenor, block resource co-ordinator (BRC) as member and cluster resource co-ordinator (CRC) of the pay centre as member secretary.
It’s not just the teachers, though. Even those who monitor them will be handed GPS-enabled tablets and tracked through geofencing by which an alert will be triggered when a mobile device enters or leaves a specified area.
Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama said that the existing fee charged by the private schools was high, which was the entire premise of enforcing the Gujarat Self Financed Schools (Regulation of Fees) Act 2017.
The principal of one of these schools revealed, “Among all other facilities, a safai kamdar and a watchman are the basic facilities that these school have not been provided. Many a times, we are forced to ask students to keep a watch at the school gate.”
