City Schools Shows Indifferent Attitude Towards School Bus Safety Norms
The schoolbussafetypune.org site, launched a year ago, was supposed to contain details of the school principal, school bus driver, an RTO officer, school bus contractors, a parent, an education officer, and a police officer per school. And its aim is to bring all the stakeholders concerned with the child safety on one platform.
It was found that 15% of city schools have not updated details about the school transport committees, school buses, or driver and attendant in the site. Most of the school officials think it as a burdensome task and they say that it requires extra time and effort.
For tackling this issue, RTO and education department organised a joint workshop with representatives from 1100 schools on 1st July. C Chavan, Assistant regional transport officer, informed that education officers have been appointed for sending notices to errant schools and meanwhile RTO takes strict action against school buses without permits.
