Spelling Errors Souldn't be a Reason to Deny Admission

Education Information

The DoE  (the Directorate of Education) gave clear instructions to private, unaided schools that admission should not be denied because of spelling errors in the application form filled by the students. It clearly states that not attaching enough documents also should not be a reason. the DoE has extended the last date for admissions under the Economically Weaker Section/Disadvantaged (EWS/DG) category, to April16.

The last date for admission under the 25% reserved category, mandated by the Right to Education Act 2009, was earlier March 31.

Releasing a list of “what not to do”, the Directorate of Education said that it will constitute teams for each district to conduct an inspection of private, unaided, recognised schools to ensure admission of candidates from the category.

The eight points on the list are:

* Don’t ask for Aadhaar number of children.

* Don’t ask for income certificates from EWS category parents who submit a copy of their ration card.

* Don’t ask for income certificates from parents who have been selected under DG category.

* Don’t ask for documents to be attested by a gazetted officer.

* Don’t refuse admission to a child on the ground of how far his home is from the school.

* Don’t ask for the child’s ration card.

* Don’t charge or demand school fee.

* Don’t deny admission on the pretext of minor spelling errors.

There were reports about parents being turned away by schools, which were seeking  ration cards and other documents. 

Each school has also been asked to place a printout of the list of admitted students outside the school gates, set up a help desk, and issue acknowledgement slips to each parent.
