Case of Gurukul Manas Academy of Mahidpur Road, complaint reached to Collector
In this, the parents have written that due to Corona epidemic and economic recession in the state, the education department has decided to open schools from 9th to 12th. In such a situation, Rakesh Pandya, the director of Gurukul Manas Academy in Mahidpur Road, is conspiring to expel Dalits and poor children from school.
Parents have alleged that the school operator has called and served notices to the parents of all children of the dalit and poor class. In which the operator has written that the children will be taught only after depositing the entire fees for the upcoming year 2020-21 in one lump sum. Children will be thrown out for not depositing fees.
Palak Dilip Parmar, Ghanshyam Jat, Gerdhan, Vishal says that he also went to meet the moderator in this regard and asked for help but the school principal told us verbally that this school will now only teach children of Brahmins and Savarnas. Dalit children will be expelled. Parents also submitted a copy of the notice given by the school operator to the collector. Also urged to take action.
