    RTE admissions: Many schools go missing in Google Map; parents in terrible dilemma


    The hi-fi Google Map has put hundreds of parents, seeking admissions for their children through RTE, in a terrible dilemma. Many schools have been found missing in the Google Map. The areal distance between the residents of children and schools has to be measured through Google Map. But the missing schools in the high-profile website have put the parents on the edge.

    The online admission process through Right To Education (RTE) for academic session 2015-16 is commencing from February 23. According to RTE guideline, the areal distance between residents of children and schools should be between one and three kilometers for admissions. The distance has to be seen through Google Map. However, questions are even being raised over accuracy of the distance. The parents seeking admissions for children went on measuring the distance between residents and schools through roads. But the distance has to be measured by air route in accordance with the RTE guidelines. Here lies the mess.

    According to RTE rules and regulations, 25 percent seats in private schools are reserved for poor and backward class students. To avoid any major difficulties for parents, the State Government adopted online admission process. Subsequently, the Education Department issued necessary guidelines to schools. The guidelines include opening of assistance centres in all the schools, putting up of banners informing the parents about online process and other arrangements.
