Communist Party of India (Marxist), in its party executive meeting, alleged that private schools were refusing admission to their own students at the plus two level on various pretexts despite the government’s standing instruction that all schools should admit their own students in the 11th standard irrespective of  their marks.

 They urged the government to come out with a white paper stating details of admission at the plus two level in private schools.

The party also asked the government to take steps to ensure reservation for socially and economically backward students in all private schools.

The CPM also wanted more funds to be allotted for education in the budget to fill teachers’ vacancies and provide basic amenities to schools like blackboards and proper toilets.

The meeting also demanded that dates be announced for the clerical cadre selection examination, the applications for which had been invited almost six months ago. Around 45,000 candidates had applied for the 567 vacant posts but the dates of the examinations were yet to be announced.
