Leaving little room for private schools to take decisions independently, the guidelines have been issued to streamline the admission process. The guidelines prohibit unnecessary screening of their guardians during the process. Earlier, the school authorities would ask unnecessary questions from the guardians over their personal issues and economic conditions. Keeping this in view, the Directorate of Education has prohibited screening of parents during the admission process.

The order specifically mandates that there shall be no management quota in admissions in any private unaided recognized schools of Delhi. This has apparently left the school authorities fuming.

The schools may face stern action if donations pose hurdle during nursery admissions. Even though parents lodge complaints against school authorities, the cases go unheard. But this time, the Directorate of Education has specified that if the schools ask for donations, they may end up paying 10 times the amount they demand for.

Meanwhile, President of All-India Parents’ Association Ashok Agarwal opined that this is a significant step taken by the Directorate of Education, adding that it may pose problem for parents as the burden would finally fall on the parents’ shoulders. He further said that the government must punish such school authorities who demand donations from parents.
