Parents in throes of admission woes

Irked by the interference from their higher-ups, principals of Bishop Cottons Boys and Girls’ schools in the City are now eager to give up their posts. The reasons cited are restriction of the powers vested with the principals, and instructions from the schools managements.

Bearing the brunt of this are parents, who, for more than three months had to go through the rigorous process to get their wards admitted into the schools for the next academic year. Having procured application forms for both the schools, many children harboured hopes of getting admitted. But now, many of them feel let down.

A parent, on condition of anonymity, said despite his child possessing the right age and having done well in the interviews, the admission has been denied owing to unexplained reasons. In worst cases, the siblings of the students who are already in these schools too have been denied admissions.

Parents whose wards have been denied admissions due to the extensive interference of the Diocese have decided to come together in support of the school principals.

Most parents have decided to meet at both school premises in support of the principals and against the interference of the board.
