DELHI GOVT CLASS XI ADMISSION CRITERIA TO BENEFIT UNAIDED PRIVATE SCHOOLS
The Admission Criteria (2013-14) for grant of different streams to the students in Class XI in Government Schools as formulated by the Delhi Government is not only arbitrary and discriminatory but also motivated and malafide. It has resulted in depriving large number of talented students of commerce/science streams. The Delhi Government's clear intention is to provide only art stream in its own run schools forcing students interested in commerce/science stream to go to private unaided schools. In other words, down grading its own schools and promoting unaided private schools. The economically weaker students have to content themselves with the Art Stream as they cannot afford fee in unaided private schools. The Admission Criteria has been deliberately designed so to benefit the managements of the unaided private schools at the cost of the careers of the thousands of the economically weaker but talented students. The affected students must raise their voice to oppose this arbitrary and anti-students decision of the Delhi Government by way of organizing DHARNA in front of the residence of Prof. Kiran Walia, Delhi Education Minister. Aam Aadmi Party should also take up this issue on behalf of the Aam Students.
