KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday issued a notice to the Cabinet sub-committee headed by the Education Minister, which prepared the controversial list of Plus-II schools that was struck down by the court.
Justice P R Ramachandra Menon issued the order on a petition filed by the Government Higher Secondary School, Perikkalloor, Wayanad, challenging the State Government’s order declining Plus-II batches for it.
The petitioner challenged the fresh list published by the Cabinet sub-committee, surpassing the six-member committee headed by the Higher Secondary Education Director.
Meanwhile, 10 schools moved the court, challenging the State’s decision to alter the list. The court extended the interim order to all the petitioners.
Plus-one Admission Put on Hold
T’Puram: In the wake of a High Court order, the Higher Secondary Directorate has decided to temporarily put on hold admission to newly sanctioned Higher Secondary Schools and additional Plus One batches allotted to existing schools.
The new admission schedule will be published after a fresh Government Order on the admission is issued, a press release from the Higher Secondary Directorate said.
The High Court on Monday directed the State Government to sanction Plus Two courses and additional batches only to those schools recommended by the Higher Secondary Education Director-headed six-member committee, ignoring the recommendations of the Cabinet subcommittee.
