"Creamy Layer" gets it all - Gurgaon Nursery Admissions 2016-17

Parents of children seeking admission in nursery classes for the forthcoming academic session (2016-17) are unhappy about the point-based system that favours certain candidates who belong to the 'creamy layer'.  Certain schools award points to children of parents with enviable professional achievements, are civil servants, or have mentionable "achievement and contribution to society". 

Salwan Public School in Sector 15 has allocated 10 extra points for parents who are civil servants, 15 for their "professional field" and 15 for "achievement and contribution to society by the parents". 

The Shri Ram School has allocated 25 points to an essay under the head of "parents' response".  While the essay prompts themselves can be arbitrary, experts feel candidates can take external help to project themselves as desirable contenders and thus can be misleading. Besides, balancing a ward's educational future on subjective topics seems unjustified to them. Instead, giving score on the basis of proximity to school and or to those with siblings in the same school seem objective because they leave no grey areas. 

Salwan Public School headmistress Savinder Rooprai said the preference to civil servants because they have transferable jobs and the school wanted to support them. "Moreover, the achievements of parents (that are scored) refer to their performance in school and college that should be known to us so that we know what environment the child has at home and accordingly, we can help them after they are admitted. We are not biased against any category of parents and try to admit a varied mix of parents," Rooprai said. 

The director of The Shri Ram School Manika Sharma didn't respond to the TOI's repeated calls and messages.
