Despite CBSE action, parents show faith in NPS institutions
Though the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) disaffiliated six institutions under the National Public School group on Tuesday, there were mixed feelings among parents with many still expressing faith in the institution.

The management was found to have “forged documents” to claim minority status to avoid giving 25% reservations under the RTE Act. One parent from the Indiranagar branch, who did not reveal her name, seemed unaffected by the news of the disaffiliation.

“I am proud of the school,” she said when asked how she took the news of the disaffiliation. The news didn't affect me or my view on the school, the parent said. Another parent from the same branch said she had been asked not to comment on the issue by the management. She however also expressed her faith in the school.

Several parents who spoke to DH said the school has a good reputation and a high moral conduct. As of now, most parents do not believe that this (disaffiliation) is possible.

“We chose this school after a lot of research. Right now, I am not thinking of taking my children out of the school,” the parent added.Yet another parent believed the “school would resolve the issue very soon.”

There were a few others who expressed a sense of despair at the announcement. A parent of a student from another branch said that they were concerned about the future of their children, especially those who are in Class 8 and above.

“There is concern and we understand that there is a compliance issue. We can only be hopeful that CBSE will take cognisance of the children's future. Their (CBSE) action is slightly extreme. Let them impose penalties and let the school function,” the parent said
