Nursery Admission: Framing admission criteria gives schools unguided power: HC
The High Court had on Monday said that its decision on the PIL would also affect nursery class admissions for the academic session 2013-14.
Earlier, the NGO’s counsel Ashok Agarwal had said he wanted the law to be settled on the issue and would not want the ongoing admission process to be affected by the court order.
The NGO alleged: “The power given to schools to lay down admission criteria is contrary to Section 13 of the Act which says that there would be no screening process of either parents or of kids and no child would be discriminated against. It also provides that admission would be taken by way of draw of lots and neighbourhood would be the only criteria.”
