If you have enrolled your child in the pre-primary section or Class I of a private unaided school this year, you could be in for much anxiety. First, schools may have to reopen admissions to make space for candidates belonging to economically weaker sections (EWS) and socially disadvantaged groups (SDG). Second, SC/ ST and OBC reservation may be made at the school level. Caste-based quotas usually start from college. On Wednesday, 16th May, 2012 school education department officials said no private unaided school, barring minority unaided institutions, can get away from the Supreme Courts April 12 verdict on the RTE Act.
This means EWS and SDG kids will comprise 25% of a class at the entry level. Much chaos might be in store as schools do not know how to accomplish this without increasing class size or cancelling admissions of confirmed students. Also, though SDG has not been defined, it will in all likelihood include children from scheduled castes and scheduled tribes, OBCs and nomadic tribes, minorities (as defined by the state), and those living in orphanages and childrens homes. SC/ STs and minorities are likely to be part of SDG irrespective of their income.
