"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.

Nursery Admissions - Jung Ka Order - what it is, what is changing.....simplified and explained!

Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Najeeb Jung has issued revised guidelines for nursery admissions for the session 2014-15 in Delhi. This is being seen as major change and a koyiey step towards killing misuse of discretionary powers  as some of the private schools has been enjoying those powers ever since first guidelines came out in 2007. (see my post DOE published nursery admission guidelines in 2007)

Mr Jung has scrapped the management quota to ensure admissions are done basis fixed parameters like neighborhood, sibling which makes sense to all, leaving loop wholes. 

Schools who had been selling seats at a cost (aka donations towards 'charities' they operate etc. etc.......pata sab ko hai bolta koi nahin - billi ke gale mai ghanti kon bandhe - tho ko tali :D). We shared few such cases as reported by parents in past years as well, check-out these posts under Seats for Sale.

The new rule/guidelines as approved by Mr Jung deserve appreciation - AAP effect is seen on recent actions (another example we all witnessed was Lokpal getting passed with-in a day that was pending for 40 years, Govt reacting to US treatment with Indian diplomat.....dair aaye durust aaye.....jab jaago tabhi savera!)

The admission process will begin from January 15, 2014 - and I wish all of you Good Luck!

Stay connected as I would be publishing a clear picture on what's what. So no worries we are in good hands of Mr. Jung ;)....

We released 2014 edition of Nursery Admissions Parent's Handbook last night, and we shall wait for few more days to update dates as suggested in the book, but rest doesn't change.
We have updated the handbook to cover new order and its impact. It is the most concise handbook on Nursery Admissions ever. So go ahead and download a free copy. 

Well begun is half done :)
