1000 B Ed and D Ed colleges have been issued a show cause notice for failing to submit requisite data through affidavits. According to a senior Union Human Resource Development Ministry official NCTE has already issued 1,000 showcause notices to stop affiliation with NCTE and thereafter, these colleges will not be able to admit students for B.Ed and D.Ed courses.
Anil Swarup, Secretary, School Education and Literacy, in the ministry, informed that 3,000 more showcause notices will be issued soon. He observed that the biggest mafia in the education sector are some B.Ed and D.Ed colleges … some of them exist in name only. He said the NCTE engaged the Quality Council of India for quality assessment of these colleges, so that they could be “star rated”.
According to Anil Swarup- The system will likely be in place within this financial year and the rating will happen thereafter. The Centre had not yet thought about pre-school. Since there are other ministries involved in it, it would be too soon to say much about pre-school.
Speaking on the incident of a four-year-old girl being assaulted sexually during the school hours, he said: “It is very unfortunate. We have been pressing upon the states and the schools to have surveillance system. “Elaborate instructions have been issued by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to (its affiliated) schools. The rest is in the state’s domain.” Citing legal provisions, Swarup said the registrations of schools were to be determined by state governments.
