Order on petition will affect nursery admission for 2013-14: High Court
Separate guidelines cannot be framed by schools, it alleged, adding that despite the law being clear, schools have been formulating their own guidelines and according preferences in the admission process on various discretionary grounds.
The court’s observations on Monday made schools look afresh at their admission plans.
Usha Ram, principal of Laxman Public School, said the school had started calculating points for more than 3,000 applications that it received. “We will keep everything ready and wait to see if changes need to be made,” she said.
Madhulika Sen, chairperson and principal of Tagore International School, said: “Every year, decisions are taken and systems are changed during the admission season. This becomes very frustrating for parents.”
“The review of admission procedure should be done before admissions are opened. Our entire schedule for the end of the academic year gets uprooted,” she said. The point of view of schools, she said, should also be taken into consideration before arriving at a decision.
