Private Schools Have Right to Admit Students Based on Their Own Criteria But Can’t be Unreasonable, Discriminatory and Whimsical: Delhi High Court.
The Delhi High Court recently says that private schools can choose their own students. But, the rules they use for selecting students must be fair and not based on personal choices. The selection process must be open, clear, and impartial.
The court made this decision after a case where a young boy wanted to join a private school, in class – 1, under the sibling criteria, but the school refused him because he did not have a fee receipt from his sibling’s school. The court said that the school’s rule was not reasonable, and they must give the boy admission.
The court also said that private schools can make their own rules for selecting students, but the rules must be fair, equal, and clear.
