The board will view the matter seriously if schools do not adhere to the board’s decision, stated a notification issued by secretary Dr S Mangijao Singh. The board may take up appropriate actions at any moment, including withdrawal of recognition or affiliation given to the school, it added. 

The move came after the Kangleipak Student Association (KSA),  a student body, recently raised the issue of schools allegedly violating the rules of studying prescribed textbooks.

In a release, KSA had demanded BOSEM to take stringent action against those schools violating the rules of studying prescribed textbooks.

It stated that many schools are prescribing more books and such violations give extra burden to the student community.

KSA alleged that the motive behind prescribing extra books is not to impart education but to commercialise the education sector. Many private schools are in nexus with publication houses of other states and schools to earn extra money by making such extra books compulsory, it stated. Commercializing the education sector only brings hurdles to parents and students both, it added.
