Fee regulation Bill unjust: Himachal pvt schools

 

The Himachal Pradesh Private Schools (Regulation of Fee and other Related Matters) Bill, 2021 is unconstitutional and unjutst as it deprives the school managements of a chance to seek justice from courts, said Dev Raj Verma, president of the Private Schools Management Association, here today.

Verma said that the private schools charged a monthly fee of Rs 1,000 to Rs 2,500 per student while the government was spending over Rs 6,000 on every student but still the private schools performed better than the government schools. If the Bill was passed, a large number of teachers of the private schools would lose their jobs and students would lose the opportunity of better education, he added.

He said that it was unfair to have only one representative of the private schools in the six-member committee. He added that the Bill proposed only a six per cent annual hike in the fee while the inflation rate was higher than it.

Proposal to Include The Great Barrier Reef On The World Heritage List In Danger

 

 

The UNESCO World Heritage Committee recommends that Australia’s Great Barrier Reef be included in the list of “in danger” World Heritage Sites.
It was suggested that it be added to the list due to the impact of climate change.

 

It is the world’s most extensive and spectacular coral reef ecosystem, with over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands.

The coral reef is located in the Coral Sea (Northeast Coast) off the coast of Queensland, Australia.

It can be seen from outer space and is the world’s largest single structure composed of living organisms.

This coral reef structure is made up of billions of tiny organisms called coral polyps.

Polyps are microscopic, soft-bodied organisms.

Coral reefs have a hard, protective limestone skeleton called a calicle at their base, which forms the structure of the reef.

There are tiny algae called zooxanthellae in the tissues of these polyps. Corals and algae have a reciprocal (symbiotic) relationship.

In 1981, it was designated as UNESCO’s World Heritage Site.
