See the indian children are very much sacred in expressing their needs, so as for as possible all the children should be ready to express things (RIGHT OR WRONG), but the interviewing of kids should not spoil the education of the child. so instead of strick and formal interviews, they shall have a normal interviews based on the things that they know.
My child has passed through these tremendous sress, which schools pass on to a child & parents. I think these interviews should be banned immidiately and schools should strictly follow neighbourhood policy of 3 km radius admissions. These interviews are basically a harassment for a child and parents.
999 out of 1000 schools in India today have totally failed in imparting any civic sense, environmental sense and moral sense among the pupils. What good is this education system? Aren't the most corrupt in this country are the most educated? If education and healthcare are not the primary responsibilities of the governments, what else are? Because of the absolutely ccorrupt and absolutely incompetent governments, both education and health care have become the two most commercialised and the two most profitable industries in India today. Courts are the only hope for the betterment of life in India today.

It is Great judgement in the decade!Indeed most of the private school management are using of conducting interviews for admiisions to KG classes with selfish motive of extracting huge monies from the mindless parents,who crave for status for admitting thier wards into English mediuum schools.At last Govt has taken very practical & drastic measures to prevent such unnecessary practices.There should not more stress on on homework/tests till the child attains the age of ten.The needs to encouragge to develop crative talents and commonsense which is rare commo- dity in most of present generation.As Rabindernath Tagore said the chlid needs to live in his own way to make good citigen.As responsible citizens of India we need to emphasize more on better useful education for every children for life with better infrastructure and condicive environment.Every one of us should pledge to avoid incidence of Kumbakonam tragedies in future.The errant and greedy responsible concerned officials should be taken to task by action forums,which may bring betterment in the present education system.May I request President of India,Shri Abdul Kalam to work on these lines V K Chakrapani,Baroda,Gujarat
there should be at least some check on the process and syllabus of kids' interviews for preprimary classes.At the tender age of 3 the schools demands that the child should know how to write and read,let alone speak.Sometimes they also demand that hte child should know how to make sentences.Obviously parents are forced to put their child in the playways at least at the age of 2yrs which is a mental harrasment for the child.If the schools are trying to copy the system of USA,they simply put aside the fact that there the minimum age of admitting the child in preprimary is 6 yrs in which the kid's mind has developed a lot.So either the age of admission should be increased or the system of admission should be changed.We welcome the decision of court and hope that the court will keep in mind the small and tender brain of kids while coming to the final judgement.
