ETT institutes seek participation of stakeholders in drafting reforms

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Nov 21: Jammu Private Schools & ETT Institutes Association (Progressive) has expressed its reservations over the much hyped initiatives of the School Education Department for reforms without taking stakeholders into confidence.
The Association strongly pleaded for participation of stakeholders in drafting and implementing the proposed regulations of JK-BOSE for affiliation of ETT course and suggested that ETT institutes running with regular schools may be considered for regular functioning with some exemptions.
For a justified treatment to the ETT stakeholders, ETT institutes having 70 percent infrastructure as on date need to be considered for regular functioning with 70 percent intake while giving at least two years time to come up. Similarly, ETT institutes having less than 70 percent infrastructure as on date also be given two years time to come-up as a first and last chance, the Association said in a statement.
The Association alleged that ETT promoters who raised the required infrastructures were being victimized in one way or other by confusions created by the authorities. “Working of the State Universities and the State School Board is disturbed due to time to time unwanted political interventions. Ruling class first uses its subordinate authorities as per wishes to suit their vested interests and then directs for overnight reforms in one stroke at second step. Elementary Training Institutes of the State are victims of this treatment of political and administrative machinery of the State Government,” the Association alleged.
