12 CLASS FAILED STUDENT HAS A RIGHT OF RE-ADMISSION IN SAME SCHOOL
We are receiving complaints from the students/parents that the schools (unaided as well as government) have been refusing re-admission to the Class XII failed students in Class XII in the academic year 2012-13. We have sent telegrams to such schools requesting them to grant re-admission immediately. If these schools don't respond positively, we shall approach the Hon'ble Delhi High Court.
Rule 138 of Delhi School Education Rules, 1973 provides, "A student who fails at any public examination shall, not, on that account, be refused re-admission in the school or class by the school from which he had appeared at such examination." It is submitted that denial of re-admission of the students by these schools is totally illegal, arbitrary and in violation of the provisions of Delhi School Education Act, 1973 and the rules made there under.
If you find any such case of violation of the right to education, please refer the same to us. We shall provide all legal help free of costs to the aggrieved students.
