Tawi, Dec 26: The Jammu and Board of School (JKBOSE) has asked affiliated private schools to implement the curriculum and textbooks prescribed by the board from the ensuing academic session for all classes.

“A writ petition was filled before the High Court of J&K and Ladakh, by Private Schools United Front, challenging the notification regarding the implementation of textbooks published by JKBOSE by all the private schools for Classes 6th to 8th in the first phase,” reads the notification.

JKBOSE said that the writ petition was dismissed by the High Court, which in its order has observed that the board is well within its rights to make it mandatory for all the private schools to prescribe textbooks published by it.
