EWS quota & nursery admissions

Public school bodies meet Kiran Walia, discuss EWS quota & nursery admissions
NEW DELHI: Representatives from three different public school committees and associations met education minister, Kiran Walia, on Friday. They have demanded for the fixing the problems created by existing land norms, a code of conduct for parents, a DE (director, education) nominee from private schools, and EWS. The representatives also told the minister that if the department centralizes submission of nursery admission forms for general category, they will all oppose it.

The three groups attending the meeting were Action Committee for Unaided Recognized Private Schools, Delhi State Public Schools Management Association and Federation of Schools. 'We talked to her about the 25% reservation for EWS category, and how the amount Rs 1,190 that the government allows is not sufficient,' says R C Jain, president, DSPSMA. The groups also demanded for a code of conduct for parents, and nomination of a director education from private schools.

'The DEs are always chosen from government schools. Earlier, some were nominated from public schools but that was withdrawn. We want a current or retired teacher or a principal from public school to be nominated,' says Jain.

According to Walia, she has 'already instructed the department to sit with these.' 'They had brought their concerns and some of them were reasonable. We'll try to address them,' she says. One of the concerns that struck her was the issue of 'completion certificates' that take years to obtain but without them, schools aren't recognized by the government. 'Everytime a board exam happens, they run into trouble with CBSE and have to run for permissions,' says Jain. 'We will have to take up their issues with other agencies and, perhaps, give them permission for two years,' says Walia. The schools also discussed the fate of about 2,235 unrecognized schools, teaching about 4.75 lakh students after March 31, 2013.
