Gujarat: Long wait for 2nd round compels RTE parents to be 'okay' with paying fees 12.7.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Disappointed with the state machinery over poor implementation of the Right to Education (RTE) Act and no clarity on the second round of admissions, parents have now started admitting their children by paying fees, out of the fear of losing out on a year. Admissions under the RTE Act have been in a limbo this year with 30,000 seats remaining vacant in the state and although a number of petitions have been filed in the High Court. While the second round of admissions was scheduled to begin from May 29, the same remains postponed till date, even as schools are set to complete a month of the new academic session. Yusufbhai Shaikh, a resident of Juhapura who works as a daily wage labourer, has tried to play safe. Disappointed with the wait for the second round of admissions, he has reserved a seat in NK Girls School near Jivraj Park for his daughter. "I had sent my daughter for KG to the same school. This year, when she turned 5 years, I filled RTE forms, but since schools have begun their session, I ...

All RTE petitions should be heard by one court, says Gujarat High Court 12.7.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
A division bench of Gujarat High Court headed by justice MR Shah on Wednesday observed that all petitions related to Right to Education should be heard by one single court. The court observed that this would prevent conflicting judgements on RTE. The court was hearing two petitions related to RTE, one about the inability of the government to start a second round of admissions and another, a PIL that sought to put in public domain the minority status of all schools. The government pleader told the court that they would move a petition before the chief justice seeking that all RTE matters be heard by a single court. Meanwhile, hearing a petition that sought directions to the state on the second round of RTE admissions that have been put on hold due to a petition moved by minority schools in the state, the bench sought to know from the State why it had rejected the application of 3,170 students under RTE. To the State's reply that they had given additional time for the rejected applicants to provide the ...

Udgam episode: Schools seek cop security in Gujarat 29.6.2018 DNA: Money
Everything was certainly not right about the Right to Education admission this year. One thing among several major concerns is the safety of the schoolchildren. Concerned about the safety of students, especially after two incidents in which two prominent politicians entered the school campuses, the Association of Progressive Schools (AoPS) wrote a letter to the Commissioner of Police (CP) on Thursday. The schools wrote to the cops after the two recent incidents in which Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader Hardik Patel and Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor visited Udgam School for Children and St Kabir school, raising queries about rights of students who were to be admitted under RTE Act. "We have written to the commissioner, seeking protection for the students and the schools. The cases are pending in the Gujarat High Court. We need to be extra careful with the safety of our children if large groups enter the school premises," Archit Bhatt, committee member, AoPS said. "We did receive a representation ...

The District Primary Education Officer (DPEO) has written to Udgam School for Children to admit those kids who have not got admission under the Right to Education (RTE) Act. While acknowledging that the case is pending in the Gujarat High Court, the DPEO, in the letter, stated that if there is no stay on the matter from the HC, the school should admit the children. Eventually, whatever the HC bench decides, will be followed. Mahesh Mehta, DPEO, said, "We have asked the schools – if there is no stay, if they can, they should admit the children as of now." Replying to the letter of the DPEO, the school clarified that it has given admission to children who are over 6 years of age in class 1 and the rest of the kids, under 6 years, have been given admission in senior KG. The reply stated: "Students who completed 6 years have been admitted in class 1, and those under the age of 6 have been offered admission in senior KG.

Schools want UP fee model, Gujarat govt says no 26.6.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
The state government has shot down most of the recommendations made by the Federation of Self-Financed scho-ols with regards to a scheme, as asked by the Surpeme court, to formulate by both the parties concerning the Gujarat Self-Financed Sch-ools (Regulation of Fees) Act. The Supreme court, on April 24, had asked the state government and the school managements to prepare a joint scheme for activities and expenses incurred. The formula if possible should be acceptable to both, the bench said. Going by the order, the federation had sent a list of recommendations to the state government on May 21 which included implementation of UP ordinance of 2018, uniform policy of surplus, etc. However, the state government has shot down and expressed its concerns in most of the recommendations. Till date, the state nor the schools have come to an amicable solution for a joint scheme. The state government on June 19 had written to the Archit Bhatt of Self-financed Schools Management Association stating that they have ...

RTE ADMISSION ‒ 2nd round of admissions on hold: Gujarat High Court 26.6.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
The state government, in an affidavit filed before the division bench of the Gujarat High Court, said that it had put the second round of admissions under the Right To Education (RTE) Act on hold. The affidavit said that the second round was on hold because 178 schools had approached the Gujarat High Court stating that they were minority institutions and hence should be exempted from the RTE act. The government said that 9,843 schools in the state had around 1,12,265 seats available under RTE. Of this, 80,165 seats were already allotted to various students under the Act and 72,294 students had already confirmed their admission. The affidavits said now 32,100 seats were remaining to be filled.

It also said that since some of the schools had moved the high court stating that they were excluded from the RTE, the second round was on hold until the court gave its ...

Hardik Patel, Alpesh Thakor come out in support of RTE kids 23.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
The Right to Education (RTE) Act in the state this year has been a farce. And, amidst the chaos of parents running pillar to post, schools knocking doors of the high court and the government not conducting a second round of admissions, Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor and Patidar leader Hardik Patel plunged into action for the rights of the RTE children. Both the leaders, along with parents, visited Udgam School for Children in Thaltej and met trustees, urging them to admit the children. The school authorities informed them about the age confusion due to which the issue has been cropped up. "Vacant seats will be filled with children of rich parents by taking lakhs of donation. Poor children also have dreams to study in hi-fi schools like Udgam but don't they have any right?" Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) convenor Hardik Patel said. "During elections, the government spent money on banners assuring children their right to study. Whereas today, the school management and the government have joined hands. ...

Gujarat: No school for thousands of kids? 22.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Gujarat government on Tuesday said the question of declaring the second round of admissions under Right to Education (RTE) does not arise as there were no seats left in any school in the state. The public prosecutor said this in connection with a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by one Chandravadan Dhruv, seeking directions from the court to the state that the second round of admission under RTE for 45,532 students be started on priority. The government said it was impossible to give admission to over 45,000 students under RTE as all the available seats had been declared filled in the first round itself. The petitioner argued that the government cannot wash its hands of the responsibility as it was the government's duty to ensure that students from the economically weaker section were given admission under RTE. The petitioner argued that government earlier said it would declare the second round of admissions for the over 45,000 students who were left out. Further hearing has been scheduled for ...
