 S.Y. Halingali, Deputy Director of Public Instruction on Friday warned the administration of St. Jospeh’s Canossian Convent High School of de-recognition if it did not commence the process of admission to first standard at its Kannada Higher Primary School by Saturday morning. This warning was under the instruction of DC N Jayram it is said.

The Kannada medium school run by St. Jospeh’s Canossian Convent has not begun the new admission process for the new academic year 2016-17. Hence Pro Kannada organisations had protested.

The Hindu Writes – Mr. Halingali, who visited the school, said that the school administration had been warned and advised to commence admission process immediately, failing which all the schools under the St. Joseph’s High School would be de-recognised. He said the school administration was denying admissions to first standard at the government-aided Kannada medium school, which was illegal.

On the other hand the school cited reasons that they have not commenced admission for want of teachers. Out of the 7 teachers 5 had resigned last year.
