“The government will consider provision of grants for non-granted schools (except English medium) across the state from the new financial year,” said State Education Minister Vinod Tawade in Legislative Council here on Wednesday, adding that such schools to be granted are 2013 (779 primary and 1234 secondary) in the state, and they would be placed under control of government.

The issue of grant to permanently non-granted schools (leaving aside ‘permanently’ word) was pending over years. After the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance government came to power, certain teacher-MLAs and teachers’ organizations were repeatedly raising the issue of salary-grant for immediate redressal. Even meeting with Bina-Anudan Kruti Samiti representatives were held in this regard, informed Tawade.

The Minister opined that teacher is important factor in teaching system, and so he discussed with the State Finance Minister and the Chief Minister for sorting out the problem. He appealed to various teachers’ organizations to withdraw their agitation for closure of schools, as their problem would be redressed soon.
