The circular, pointing towards their discriminatory attitudes, states that admitting poor children (as part of the mandatory 25 % reservation in the Act) will be "detrimental to the psyche of all the children". The circular goes on to potray underpriviliged children in a distasteful manner by implying that they could beat up other children and misbehave with girls and the school will have to watch helplessly.
The circular reads:
Kindly do not ignore this circular as it affects your child's future directly
Any child will have to be allowed into school and share the classroom with your child. Eminent psychologists have said that this will be detrimental to the psyche of all the children.
Once this Act is enforced, another child could beat up your child, smoke on the campus, misbehave with a girl or a teacher and the school will have to watch helplessly.
The school has since apologised for bringing out the circular. But what is unfortunate is that this alarmist and discriminatory attitude extends to many private schools and is not confined only to this school.
CACL-K, in the light of these negative attitudes being displayed by many private schools, held a protest on M.G. Road, strongly condemning such institutes and individuals.

Appreciate your work, I think all child have same rights not only in schools but everywhere, I also accept that this discrimination travels to child from their parents, If parents will show their love to all child then their child too.....
The thing is, I have been a self-contained teacher on and off throughout the years in multiple environments in self-contained classrooms in open public high schools, middle schools and elementary schools. school
