Selecting a school for your child . . .Options for your child

When it comes to selecting a school for their children, all Indian parents want their children to get the best education possible. Finding the right school of course is easier said than done. What might suit one child, may not be the ideal school for another. While searching for an appropriate school, keep in mind that a school that charges higher fee does not necessarily make it more efficient than other schools. Here are some recommendations on selecting a school that you may want to consider: 1. If you have a syllabus in mind that you want your child to follow such as, CBSE, ICSE or IGCSE, then do a search only for schools that offer this curriculum. Once you find the schools offering your desired syllabus you can pay attention to the school that suits you most. 2. School location will naturally play a part in your selection, unless you are seeking a boarding school for your child. 3. Boarding schools in India are quite popular and many young children aged 6 years and up go to boarding schools, Depending on how long your child has stayed away from India, it might be better to start them off in day school, before opting for a boarding school. 4. When visiting schools, Inquire about student teacher ratio and teachers qualifications and background. Schooling is a big business in India. School fees in India can be expensive depending on the school selected. Some schools are quoting fees of Rupees 3 lakh to 5 lakh per year, for children studying in junior classes. Spending 5 lakh per year for a child’s primary education, which if considering a rate of exchange of Rs. 50 per dollar, works out to $10,000 per year! NRIs in many countries such as Canada will find that free education for all children up to high school is indeed a benefit many people take for granted. A large number of middle class parents in India make a lot of sacrifices so as to provide the best education they can afford for their children. Not only do they pay hefty fees but mere procedure of even getting a school admission application form is sold by some schools. Getting a admission application form does not guarantee admission so schools can pass out as many forms as they can as a source of revenue.
