Considering the Right to Education Act (RTE) admission situation, the education department has decided to extend the admission process under Right to Education Act till July 9.
The admission process under the RTE Act did not get any response from the parents. This is the reason that till June 30, only 3,313 children out of 5,611 were able to get admission under RTE.
The Education Department cited Covid situation behind parents not admitting their children in allotted school. Hence, the time limit for the process has been extended.
Another reason is that the admission process was earlier postponed due to Covid situation. Due to which there was a delay in starting the process. It resulted in loss of enthusiasm of the parents.
This has impinged upon the admission process. Contrary to the claim of the depart ment, parents are refraining from getting their children admitted under Right to Education Act as they were not allotted desired schools. It was expected to happen right after the result of draw.
The parents were expecting that their child would be enrolled in the preferred schools. But this did not hap pen. Parents said that they were not allotted the first five schools in the priority list. So, they are not admitting children to schools.
