COIMBATORE: A State-level monitoring committee from Chennai has reviewed the processing and status of the 25 per cent reservation meant for economically and socially weaker section in private schools in the district under the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2009, on Tuesday.
A top official of the three-member monitoring committee said that it was a regular process similar to sessions that were held last year.
The visit of the monitoring committee took place after the school education department received a series of charges from parents on schools violating the RTE norms.
On Friday, parents from various parts of the district staged a protest at the office of the Chief Education Officer alleging irregularities in schools regarding the issue of application and admissions given under the RTE quota.
Chief Education Officer A Gnanagowri said that the monitoring committee will go through all data regarding the RTE admissions in the district and a report will be prepared based on the assessment.
This year, schools in the district have 4,433 seats under the RTE quota. Until June 4, various schools have given admissions to 3,313 students under the RTE quota in the district, with 1,120 seats lying vacant.
