In the wake of the Ryan Murder case, the Haryana government has decided to constitute a regulatory body which will look after the security of the children in the private and government schools along with the education standards.
Additional chief secretary (Education) of Haryana KK Khandelwal said "the students' security in schools is a major issue".
“The regulatory body will work similar to vigilance bureau of electricity to keep an eye on mismanagement in schools. The body will be entitled to conduct surprise checking in schools and recommend for cancellation of license and penalties under the Haryana Education Act to the ministry concerned,” he said.
The state has 23 districts and over 25000 schools out of which more than 13500 schools are private. The government is also thinking about introducing scouts and guides in the schools in order to encourage the children to take self-defense courses.
Khandelwal further added that "the Haryana education minister will table a new act in the next assembly session to keep a tab on fee structures of private schools."
“The new act is part of the Haryana Education Act and the regulatory body will have the power to use it against schools if they found them under below standards on the education front,” he added.
