Never tired of counting its diversities, India could add another one: it has schools that could compare with the best anywhere in the world, it also has schools that would send shock waves among educationists and psychologists whether education could be imparted in ‘such’ conditions too. One could see this diversity in its full flow even in the capital city of Delhi. Prestigious public schools attract national attention at the time of nursery admissions. Ever-increasing rush, rising fees, pressures and pulls, and all that is reported extensively in the media. The ‘system’ remains respectful to this class of schools, as it remains unconcerned to the schools run on public funds. Every government claims credit for increased yearly allocation to education; one wonders why its schools are losing acceptability? On the other side, ‘public schools’ continue to fleece the willing parents on one count or the other. Even the court orders on fee-increase regulation can’t check the ‘prevalent practices’.
