Pinemount, other public schools come under separate directorate
Shillong, July 19: The Cabinet has decided to bring the Pinemount and other public schools under Directorate of School Education and Literacy (DSEL).
Chief Minister Conrad Sangma told reporters after the cabinet meeting that the Pinemount and other public schools had been historically under the jurisdiction of the Directorate of Higher & Technical Education (DHTE).
Since all the schools up to class XII are under the DSEL, the public schools should come under DSEL.
“Therefore, a decision was taken in the xabinet that the Pinemount school and other public schools should also come under the jurisdiction of the DSEL instead of the DHTE,” Conrad said.
