News - Uneven distribution of education streams in Delhi schools

The Delhi HC (High Court) has asked the AAP government and the Centre to respond on a plea alleging an "alarmingly uneven distribution" of science and commerce streams in the Delhi government schools.

A brief about the plea :

On Thursday, a petition was filed before the Delhi HC alleging that majority of government schools in the city are not facilitating science and commerce streams at intermediate level to students.

The Public Interest Litigation pointed out that the distribution of schools offering science and commerce streams is "alarmingly uneven"

The petition was filed by Advocate Yusuf Naqi who said that out of a total of 1,029 schools in the national capital, only 279 offered science stream to class XI and XII students, while commerce was offered in 613 schools

"Depriving them of their right to choose a profession or carry on any occupation, trade or business of her own choice as guaranteed under Article 19(1)(g) of the Constitution of India," said the plea

Notice to CBSE :

Besides, a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar has issued a notice to the CBSE on a plea alleging issues of "non-uniformity and 'cherry-picking' practice" of Delhi government in offering science and commerce streams to students at the intermediate level in the government schools
The bench has asked the city government, the Centre and the CBSE to file affidavits on the matter

Further, the plea also alleged that since only 2 government schools in central Delhi offer science stream after class X, the willing students of this area are required to travel to other districts of the National Capital Territory.

"Though there are government educational institutions offering science and commerce streams at intermediate level, however the distribution of such schools offering science and commerce streams is alarmingly uneven and it is evident from the government records that there are 'shadow pockets' in different regions of Delhi that do not offer science and commerce streams at all, in their academic curriculum," the plea added.

Now, further hearing on the matter will take place on November 28.
