Nursery Admissions: Online Petition And Protest Against Corruption In Schools Of Delhi

An online movement is taking a big shape in New Delhi where some of public spirited colleagues and members of legal fraternity have joined hands to fight against corruption existing in the schools of Delhi.

The aim of this movement is to consolidate the hardships faced by parents during seeking admission at schools in Delhi. The education lobby of schools is too powerful that even our government needs hard push to take legal action against them.

Our online movement is primarily requesting the Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh, Chief Minister of Delhi Mrs. Sheila Dikshit and Hon’ble Delhi High Court and Hon’ble Supreme Court of India to interfere and punish the guilty schools and their management and the corrupt individuals.

To consolidate the work that we have already done in this regard, we are providing the links of the following articles:

(1) Right To Education: A Successful Failure Of India

(2) Nursery Admissions: Schools In Delhi Are Openly Flouting Laws And Norms

(3) Nursery Admissions In Delhi-The Legalised Education Mafia

(5) Schools In Delhi That Do Follow And Do Not Follow Laws And Norms

Some of these articles are also available at here, here and here and we would keep on updating the list from time to time.

We hope parents would come forward to share their experience, good or bad, with us so that we can provide a holistic picture to our government and courts.

We also expect our justice oriented courts to take notice of the development happening in Delhi and take suo motu action against the guilty schools and individuals.

We also request the Delhi High Court to consider the averment and material made available in this article as part of the ongoing public interest litigation (PIL) as the court has powers to do so.
