1. Practically all schools have weightage points for -
i) Neighbourhood, ii) Alumini & iii) Sibling.
All these are understandably good practices.
2. Then we have management Quota followed by
3. Random selection process. which may include subjective evaluation like giving marks for Parents achievement, lottery system etc.
Our suggestions :
Point 1 is ok,
Point 2 shd be eliminated altogether or restricted to 10%.
Point 3: Subjectivity in pt 3 to be replaced with objectivity. Achievement can be categorised as
a) Educated Mother - This will help in bringing up the child.
b) Educated Father.
c) Special qualification like - honours from reputed Institutions.
d) Parents achievement may include - Publication in Papers , Magazines, State level players, cotribution to music, society etc etc.
Lottery system should be the last resort as it unnecessarily brings in the LUCK factor. more
