BEO told to allot RTE  seats to four kids without 2nd lottery 23.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The High Court of Karnataka on Friday directed the Block Education Officer, Bengaluru South, to allot seats to four children to Class I under the Right to Education (RTE) quota to another neighbourhood school without insisting that they undergo the lottery again.

Justice L Narayanaswamy passed an order in a petition filed by four six-year-olds who were allotted seats under the RTE at New Millenium School, Cooke Town. The school later rejected their seats claiming that it is a linguistic minority institution and appealed before the high court. Minority institutions have an exemption under the RTE Act.
Third round of lottery

The Commissioner of Public Instruction submitted before the high court that they would conduct the third round of lottery for allotting seats under the RTE Act. The government had previously informed the court that it has closed the allotment of seats under RTE. The third round will be conducted following pressure from parents.

"Under the RTE, all students are promoted up to Class VIII and are suddenly required to clear board examinations in higher grades. This leads to stress among students and high-stakes situations, which result in adverse outcomes like preparing for the test and mass cheating," the plan panel has noted in its suggestion to the government. The government should pilot a system of technologically enabled "examinations on demand", which could test students on "absolute competencies instead of relative marks", and allow them to take and re-take examinations as and when they are ready for it. "This can ...
