School arbitrariness continues in the nursery admission process for the academic session 2023-24 in Delhi’s private schools. Even after strict instructions from the Directorate of Education, 380 schools have not yet uploaded their admission standards on the website of the school and the link provided by the Directorate. Due to non-uploading of standards, parents are not able to know the basis of admission in these schools.
The Directorate of Education had given time till November 28 to the schools to upload their standards to bring transparency in the admission process. It has been five days since the application process started, but the schools are not taking the Directorate’s instructions seriously. Out of 1728 private schools, only 1344 have issued admission norms so far. Among the schools which have not issued standards, there are many renowned schools in the city.
380 schools doing arbitrary
380 schools are doing arbitrary. Parents say that the schools do not want transparency, so they are delaying the uploading of standards. The Directorate should take action against such schools.
Most of the violating schools are from West Delhi (B) area.
West Delhi (B) zone has the maximum number of 63 schools that have not uploaded the standards in violation of the guidelines. There are 237 private schools in this locality. On the second number is the area of North West (B). Where as 55 schools have not uploaded the standards. A parent told that they have to enroll their son in a private school located at Pusa Road, but they are yet to know what will be the criteria for admission there. Parents seeking admission in a school in Palam are also getting worried. As the date of application is getting closer, the worries of the parents are increasing.
