हम घोडे और गधे एक साथ नही पढाते हैं और स्कूलों के जैसे - Amity Intl, Saket


Amity Reality Check Part -1
- reports a parent who had live interaction at Amity Intl Saket

Do not know the lady interacting with parents was she the principal or just a teacher but she commented on a question asked by parents why only their school was interviewing kids, she stated "हम घोडे और गधे एक साथ नही पढाते हैं और स्कूलों के जैसे", this is the langugae they speak with children there?

Amity Reality Check Part -2
- reports a parent who had live interaction at Amity Intl Saket

Please do not forget one of the SO-CALLED BEST (in books but we really doubt if they are close to what they say) South Delhi schools.

Amity International, Saket - The process is not transparent at all. They called 100 parents everyday (basis unknown) and asked them to fill a 4-5 pages JUNK/CRAP form (which took atleast 1 hour to fill).

We scored ZERO points (as per their criteria mentioned on school noticeboard) and have never expected a call from them. BUT they called up and asked us to come for verification of dcouments.

In the interaction they asked us many irrelevant questions about our family business. It was proper 10 mins interview on the name of interaction. Although it went very well in our case but to tell you the truth that on what basis they have called us for the verification, our house is 15 KM from the school, no sibling, no alumni, no girl child, no govt servant, no physically chalenged, no SC/ST and not the part of management.

One VERY IMPORTANT thing we missed here is the verifier of documents (apparently a clerk) told us they have called 2000 parents for the interaction. IS THIS FAIR? School only have 60 SEATS and they called up 2000 PARENTS.. ON WHAT BASIS?
1. They haven't taken out any shortlist of candidates for VERIFICATION OF DOCUMENTS
2. There is clearly mentioned on their website that the final admission list will be out on 1st feb, but there is no transparency and NO ADMISSION LIST IS THERE ON WEBSITE.
3. Also i came to know (from a very close relative) that his son has taken admission in January month itself in Amity Intl. As after his interaction ... school called them in 3 days and asked them to deposit fees in next 2 days. This is totally RIDICULOUS, they are not bothered about ANY RULE.

They are just wasting everyone's time and following own method of taking bribe (on name of donation) and giving admissions. How they can tell in January month itself if the child is shortlisted for admission and parents are suppose to deposit fees. Their interaction went till 30th Jan 2008. Still there is no clear list.

Amity Reality Check Part -3
- reports a parent who was in tears when he was talking to me over phone

We have at least 10 parents who have shown interest in filing/reporting a case aginst Amity International, Saket on basis of some analysis they have done. Rule voilations are public but we really don't understand what the hell DOE, Education Minister is waiting for????

Amity Reality Check Part -4
- reports a parent over e-mail on 6-feb-2008

Amity Saket has got a note signed by parents that ONLY Rs. 500 (Caution money) is refundable out of Rs. 33k (without transport) paid in the event a refund is required.
When the government's rule clearly said not more than 1 month can be deducted. Is DOE listening???

Amity International Pushp Vihar has fleeched Rs 800 for parent interaction and child interview. They have not yet declared the result not even an e-mail or any update on site regarding nursery admission?

They stated during interaction they are not taking any kids who are just three years, in nursery.They want kids who are atleast 3 years and 6 months or more. They are only taking 3yrs old in play group. Why did they ask us to fill the form for nursery then. They fleeced the money, took the child alone for interview in seperate room and then stated your child is not fit for nursery, better put him in playgroup. They made us look like complete fools.A child who is going to turn three in March,2008.Being rejected for nursery admission, despite government order not to interview kids are judging our children and giving us complex saying our children are not good enough.

Check the registration form its asks you to list a few drawbacks of the child. How many parents want to judge their 3 year old kids with weakness? We had stated no weakness in the child. Request all parents to not to give up on such schools they need to be taught how sensitive kids are and they need affection and care and not their judgement whether they are good or bad.

Amity International, Saket

Some unnoticed things about this great marketplace: At the time of Form Submission, they asked each and every parent to pay Rs. 300 for the prospectus (confirmed from 20 other parents). Most of them haven't argued and paid Rs. 300 and they handed over their prospectus which is of any use only after admission.

in the market of education, schooling or rather sould i say good schooling is fast becoming a rarer commodity. Even if the child gets admission in a school how can we expect these dim witted morons to teach anything to our kids when the only thing that concerns them is not pairing "Horses and Donkeys".

This is what i say racial abuse...shame is a word which is hiding away from fear that we would apply it on the schools like Amity.
