In a bid to counter the frequent closure of educational institutes, the Private Schools Association of (PSAK) has collaborated with three IT companies, an said today.

The PSAK has tied up with Tech Avant-Garde, and companies, PSAK G N told reporters.

said the association felt that during the last few years, the situation in has turned really bad for the sector with weeks and even months of forced closure of educational institutes happening per year.

He said there were no efforts by the government or any one else to help schools to operate smoothly, despite everybody agreeing that is a vital part of the society.

"Restrictions, curfews, violent situations have become part of our day to day life now. We are unable to provide quality to students as our schools get closed even at a small pretext. At times, we cannot even operate buses due to fear of violence," claimed.

"It is in this regard that we are trying to use IT enabled services to counter frequent closure of schools," he added.

He said the services would not only counter closure of schools but also provide global quality education to students.

"We are living in a conflict zone that we cannot help. But what we are trying to do is to isolate the education sector in a way that it remains largely unaffected," he said.
