Subject: Movement for integration
Date: Sat, 1 May 2004 15:58:10 +0530
Dear Friend, Hello,
Please find enclosed hereto a copy of order dated 27.04.2004 issued by the
Govt. of Delhi pursuant to the Orders of Delhi High Court dated 20.01.2004
and 21.04.2004 passed in the PIL filed by Social Jurist raising question of
integration of children belonging to weaker sections in the Public Schools
of Delhi which have been given public land on throwaway prices.
Fortunately, the Supreme Court has also passed similar directions for
implementation of conditions of land allotment to the public schools in the
matters in which I represented the parents of Delhi.
The task of integration of children belonging to the weaker sections in
Public Schools in terms of the conditions of land allotment read with Court
and Govt. orders is quite possible only with the required efforts of all
sections of people of the society. It is an opportunity for every one of us
desirous to fight against inequity in education to contribute our might to
make the integration process a reality.
I, therefore, request you to join with us in this movement by ensuring that
the children of weaker sections living in your locality and/other
localities are admitted by the nearby public schools and such children are
granted freeship. I would also like to have your reaction on this entire
process of integration. Please also keep me informed about the
difficulties, if any, you may face in the process.
I would also like to point out that; in any case, we should never loose
sight of the fact that unless government formal school system is improved,
problems regarding UEE are not going to be solved.

DIRECTORATE OF EDUCATION
OLD SECRETARIAT: DELHI-110054
