Is 1.5 lakh rupees or more justified for the LKG admission?One does not know what is going on in other metro cities. In Chennai, we have this peculiar, but cruel, thing: the going rate is upwards of rupees 1.5 lakh for an LKG admission in a very famous school, situated in the prestigious T.Nagar area of Chennai city.
The pity is that there is a huge demand and the donation is so high. There are parents who patiently wait to get the admission forms and submit the same into this famous CBSE school.
Yes, this is one of the best schools in the country, now having some branches elsewhere too. However, we should not imagine that this is the only good school. There are even very good State Board schools, where there is the English medium, right from the LKG class. There are other CBSE schools, with wonderful play schools as well.
However, the madness continues. There are one or two other branded schools in the same category as the one quoted above, that also charge such huge amounts for a child in LKG. And there is the ridiculous farce of an interview with the parents and the child, who is just three years old.
How can we justify this horrible thing?
