Spending on the children beyond the government aid, Sanatan Dharm Senior Secondary School, Sector 24, has been trying to admit each and every student, against the availability of seats, and free education to upto Class X.
Under the Right to Education Act (RTE), the government-aided schools are supposed to provide free education along with uniforms and books to the students of Class 1 to VIII, but this school has been providing free education to the children upto Class X. As many as 230 students from Class I to X are studying in the school at present, while 200 students are admitted in Classes XI and XII.
In addition to this, the school has also started a pre-nursery-cum-play school, which the management is running entirely through funds from various sources. Like other government schools, SD Senior Secondary School does not admit children on the basis of draw of lots but on the first-come-first-serve basis for lack of seats.
Adarsh Kumar Sharma, in-charge of the school, said, "Our school is completely government aided but there are certain things which the government fails to provide like the uniforms and books in time and we are just making sure that the children studying here are getting all benefits which they actually should be getting. Now it is entirely a school for Below Poverty Line (BPL) children."
"Our school is close to many periphery areas, including Dhanas and Khuda Lahora, which is why we receive more students from these areas. Unlike other schools, we admit every student against the availability of the seats."
