Office bearers of CBSE Schools Associations across India will meet and discuss various issues confronting functioning of CBSE schools, including non representation of Management on the CBSE board, in Coimbatore on Saturday.

“Despite representations for the last 25 years, the Government has not heeded to the appeal by the Association of Managements of Private Schools (AMPS) of Tamil Nadu to have a management representative in the board, so that it could help while formulating new policy or change the system,” AMPS general secretary A T B Bose told reporters.

Though principals of some schools were made Board members they do not have any say in policy making as the management and decisions were often taken without taking inputs from the management, he said. AMPS was instrumental in representing the issues faced by the management in a formal and professional manner with the concerned departments, he said, adding that when the autonomy of CBSE schools was at stake, the association had found solution by approaching the judiciary.
