Nursery Admission blues

Mon, Jan 14, 2013 at 4:07 PM
Khaas Aadmi Vs Aam AadmiBoth Delhi Government and the private schools are making fool of the aam aadmi in the matter of nursery admissions in private schools in 75% paid seats. Delhi Government has issued nursery admission guidelines on 15.12.2010 permitting the private schools to make their own admission criteria which is without any authority to law and also contrary to the provisions of RTE Act, 2009. In view of the clear provisions in RTE Act, 2009, no such guidelines were at all required to be issued. These guidelines have been issued at the instance of the private schools in order to benefit them. The private schools are only taking advantage of these illegal and unauthorized guidelines dated 15.12.2010. These guidelines have given leverage to the private schools to continue with the dynasty rule of providing admission to the children of KAAS AADMI against those of AAM AADMI. Such an arbitrary and discriminatory criteria would deprive majority of children of their right to equal participation in the admission process. Parents must understand that unless we have a just system in place, their exploitation would continue. Therefore, we all must demand a just system in place.Ashok Agarwal, Advocate
