Though the academic year has commenced, non-availability of textbooks is haunting schoolchildren again.
This problem has been confronting students every year, particularly since 2003. However, the education authorities have failed to respond to the problem by ensuring that all textbooks are made available on time, said M.V. Chavan, president, the Belgaum Association of Parents, while submitting a memorandum to the Deputy Director of Public Instruction (DDPI) here on Wednesday.
He said the association filed a writ petition in the Karnataka High Court on May 29 in this regard. The court has asked the Government to submit its position in the matter.
Thus, the association has urged the DDPI, Belgaum, to declare to the public the exact position of the availability of textbooks and when they would be made available to students
