EWS Quota
Court notice to P’kula admn, pvt schools
Tribune News Service

Panchkula, November 13
The district court issued notice to the Panchkula district administration and six private schools here today on a petition seeking the immediate framing of guidelines for implementing the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, for November 18.

Advocate Pankaj Chandgothia and his wife Sangeeta, who filed the petition, said they have experienced the trauma, tension and worry which parents underwent during the admission process, since they are parents to two sons -- aged 9 and 11 years.

He said this tension is multiplied when the administration put up road-blocks in the admission policy of the schools, by way of making certain rules and regulations which are ambiguous, thereby adding more confusion to the already tedious admission processes.

Advocate Chandgothia and his wife had filed the similar petition in a Chandigarh court as well where the UT administration had sought time to file their reply whereas Independent Schools Association and respondents of private schools had failed to file their reply. The case would be coming up for further hearing on November 16. The petitioners contended that there was no clarity about the number of seats, which each school had to fill through the EWS quota.
