San Francisco education officials have proposed a one-year extension of the lottery-based admission system at Lowell High School.

Superintendent Vince Matthews said there was no time to revert to the previous admissions process based on test scores and grades for the next school year, according to the Chronicle of San Francisco.

“We recognize that in light of the recent court ruling, families are eager to know what the admission process will be to apply to Lowell for the 2022-2023 school year,” Matthews said in a report. “It would be logistically impossible to establish and implement selective admission criteria before the February 4 application, so I recommend that we maintain our current admission practice at Lowell for the coming year.”

The district halted merit-based admissions for 9th graders during the COVID pandemic, saying there were no adequate criteria for judging students due to distance learning.

The school board voted to make the change permanent, but critics continued with the change.

Last month, a judge ruled that the school board failed to follow state law when it voted to end the competitive admissions process.

The judge said the district “clearly failed” to follow the state’s Brown Law, which requires public officials to provide full information on board meeting agendas on what action to consider.

The goal of the initiative, known as the Prospective Law Student Preparation Program (PALS), is to help first-generation students and economically disadvantaged students succeed on admission to law school, according to the press release.

“We are delighted and grateful to the Law School Admission Council for the opportunity to offer an undergraduate law program at NC Central University,” said Dean Browne C. Lewis of the NCCU School of Law. “It is a chance for the law school to contribute to the lives of future law students and a way for these students to enrich the life of our law school. “

Historically black university law school officials point to a recent study by the American Bar Foundation which found that for the nation’s law students in 2019, black Americans made up nearly eight percent. Hispanics made up just under 13 percent and Asians just over six percent.

The NCCU will work closely with the state’s 10 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, the only historically Native American university designated by the state.

PALS will target 30 selected students, who will receive “key information to complete the law school admissions process,” the statement said.

Students will also “learn essential strategies for preparing financially, psychologically and academically for law school,” law school officials said in the statement.

AccessLex funds the program with proceeds from its previous incarnation as an issuer of private student loans. The organization said it hopes to have 15 law schools enrolled by the official launch next year. Schools will refer up to 10 applicants and offer them deferred admission and a scholarship of at least 20% of the tuition fee provided they successfully complete their preparation year.

KOCHI: Kerala’s high court has sought the opinion of the state government on a petition alleging that a victim in a POCSO case was denied admission to a public school.
Judge Raja Vijayaraghavan V sought the government’s opinion on a petition (WP-C No. 26624/2021) filed by the victim’s mother through lawyer R Gopan.
The victim was an inmate at a children’s home in Neyyattinkara and was a VHSC freshman at a nearby assisted school. The defendant, who is a minor and brother of a detainee, began threatening the victim after being released on bail, along with his relatives, according to the petition filed with the High Court.
The management of a children’s home in Mavelikkara agreed to house the victim there, but they asked him to be admitted to a nearby school. The victim and her mother approached the director of a public secondary school located near the children’s home. Knowing that the girl is a victim in a POCSO case, the principal denied the admission, giving the lame excuse that there was no vacant post, the complainant alleged.
A complaint has been filed with the director of vocational upper secondary education as well as the secretary of the general education department, but no action has yet been taken by them, the mother said.

A helpless mother addressed the Kerala High Court on Thursday, alleging that her daughter, a survivor of sexual harassment, had been refused admission to a public school.

Judge Raja Vijayaraghavan V. ordered the head of government to obtain instructions and submit the reasons why the child victim cannot be accommodated in the defendant school.

The petitioner is the mother of a 17 year old child. The child was continuing his first year VHSC (FHW) course at the Victory VHSS Olathanni Assisted School. Due to abject poverty, she was staying at Christian Mission Children’s Home.

Lawyer R. Gopan represented the petitioner and argued that due to an unfortunate turn of events she was sexually abused.

As a result, a crime was registered at the Kunnikode Police Station, alleging offenses, inter alia, under Article 3 of the POCSO Law and Article 376 of the IPC.

It was argued that the school in which the child continued his studies was located near the house of the accused. It is also argued that the child is always mocked by some people.

In order to continue her studies, she applied for transfer admission to the government vocational upper secondary school.

The lawyer claimed that although there are enough vacancies in said school, for one reason or another, admission is denied. Several representations were filed before the respondents and the same is pending.

The Court will take up the case again on November 30.

Chief Justice Anin-Yeboah

South Dayi MP writes to Chief Justice requesting documents on law school admissions inquiry

Establishment of a committee to investigate alleged illegal admissions to Ghana Law School

CJ says he will file an application with the General Legal Council for consideration

Chief Justice Anin Yeboah denied a request from South Dayi MP Rockson-Nelson Defeamekpor, asking for the disclosure of details of an investigation into allegations of illegal admissions to the Ghana School of Law.

According to the chief justice, he has not yet received a directive from the General Legal Council, which he chairs, to publish the findings of the investigation.

“Unfortunately, I am not authorized by the Council to communicate the requested documents relating to the ongoing investigation. The committee formed has not yet reported to the Board on any progress to date, ”the Chief Justice said in a report from Myjoyonline.

The South Dayi MP, in his letter to the Chief Justice, noted that some students who sat for the Ghana Law School Entrance Examination in 2020 and failed were nevertheless admitted.

The MP further said he was aware of a committee to look into the matter and that said committee was chaired by the outgoing president of the Ghana Bar Association (GBA), Anthony Forson.

The committee, as part of its work, reportedly interviewed and received responses from the acting principal of the school, the registrar and the deputy registrar.

Rockson Defeamekpor had requested all these documents claiming that the Constitution of Ghana and the Right to Information Act guarantees his right of access to these documents.

He therefore requested that the documents be made available to him within seven days.

In the meantime, the chief justice said he would submit the request to the GLC at its next meeting for consideration.

A San Francisco Superior Court judge ruled that the San Francisco Board of Education violated the state’s Brown Law for Government Transparency earlier this year as it sought to change the process of Lowell High School merit-based admission in a lottery process.

In his ruling on Thursday, Judge Ethan Schulman found that the board had violated Brown’s Law, which requires local government bodies to hold open and public meetings, by failing to publish an agenda for the meeting on February 9 with an adequate description of the resolution that sought to change. the school’s admission policy.

However, Schulman said his decision did not directly order the San Francisco School Board and Unified School District to reinstate Lowell’s old admissions policy, but instead declared the original resolution to be “null and void. avenue ”.

Although the school’s old merit-based system appears to be back in effect, if the district and school board still wish to proceed with the change in admissions policy, they can do so by bringing back the resolution and holding a public hearing under Brown’s Law, Schulman said.

He told the court:

“I put this resolution aside after finding it null and void. … What the board does as a result depends on the board. And, as I indicated in the ordinance, it is not impossible, or at least it does not seem impossible to me, that they give up on this matter and have the well-noticed and well-organized public meeting that could end. that they resume the same action. But it’s not up to them to tell them what they should or shouldn’t do as a result of the court order.

In February, the school board voted to change the school’s admission process from an academic system to a lottery system, which is the regular process used for all high schools in the district. Although for decades before the high school had selected students based on the GPA, the commissioners said the change was a response to the persistent racism that was being reported at the school.

The change, which went into effect for the current 2021-2022 school year, was supported by the Lowell’s Black Student Union, the SFUSD African American Parent Advisory Council and the SF Alliance of Black School Educators.

However, following the ruling, the Lowell Alumni Association, the Friends of Lowell Foundation and the Asian American Legal Foundation filed a lawsuit, alleging that the ruling was rushed and violated Brown’s Law. As part of the lawsuit, the plaintiffs sought an injunction to force the school board to reverse the decision.

In a statement, Lowell Alumni Association president Kate Lazarus said:

“We are satisfied with today’s decision.

Lazare added:

“The court acknowledged that the Board of Education used a flawed process to change Lowell’s admissions policy. San Francisco students and families deserve transparent, inclusive and fair public meetings. The Lowell Alumni Association will continue to uphold these principles every step of the way to ensure Lowell remains one of the best public high schools in the United States.

The San Francisco school board broke state law when it voted the end of a century of competitive academic admissions to Lowell High School, a judge ruled Thursday, inflicting yet another legal setback on the district school in difficulty.

Superior Court Judge Ethan Schulman said the district “has clearly failed” to follow the state’s Brown Law, which requires officials to provide full information on the agendas of council meetings. administration on the actions to be considered.

The agenda list regarding the change in admissions policy gave “totally inadequate notice to parents and others that the board was considering eliminating Lowell’s merit-based admissions policy,” said declared the judge in his decision. “The board could have easily complied with the law, and it knew how to do it, but it didn’t.”

The board voted 5-2 to repeal the policy in February, replacing it with the same lottery-based system used in other district high schools.

Online submission of applications will begin on November 25 and end on December 8

The admission process for the 2022 academic year will be conducted through a central lottery system in all public and private schools nationwide under the supervision of the Division of Secondary and Higher Education of the Ministry of Education.

Filing of admission applications online will begin on November 25 and end on December 8, as decided yesterday following a series of discussions on the matter.

The public schools lottery will take place on December 15, while the private schools lottery will take place on December 19.

In public schools, the students selected, from the first to the ninth grade, will be admitted from December 18 to 23 while the students on the waiting list will be chosen between December 26 and 30.

On the other hand, students from private schools will be admitted from December 21 to 27, while students on the waiting list will be registered from December 28 to 30.

Md Belal Hossain, Director (Secondary) at the Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education (DSHE), told Dhaka Tribune that authorities will issue a detailed resolution after another meeting on Sunday.

According to the sources, a student could apply to five schools in total and submit their application through Teletalk.

The authorities will later inform the students if they have been selected into the lottery system through Teletalk and the website of the schools they have selected for admission.

Application fees reduced to Tk22

DSHE officials said that given the Covid-19 pandemic, they have reduced the application fee per school to Tk22, which was previously Tk170 and Tk200 in public and private schools respectively.

Last year, students from grades one to eight were also admitted by lottery.

Previously, lottery admission was restricted to Class I students, while ninth year admission was based on the results of the Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Junior Dakhil Certificate (JDC) exams.

Why a unified lottery system?

Speaking to the Dhaka Tribune, DSHE Managing Director Syed Md Golam Faruk said parents have to participate in a race every year to admit their children to schools across the country, especially in Dhaka.

“This practice must be stopped soon because every school has the same right to obtain deserving students.”

Schools themselves ran the lottery separately, which created controversies for allegations of corruption and nepotism, he said. “We successfully launched the online lottery admission system on a trial basis last year. This process is more transparent than the previous ones. “

Golam Faruk said the government has developed a new system in which students will submit their applications. There will be two different sections on the website, one for public schools and another for private schools.

Teachers not happy

Many teachers from several schools in Dhaka expressed their dissatisfaction with the new system by speaking to Dhaka Tribune.

“We have not yet received official instructions. However, we have heard that this year we have to accept government supervised admission at the cost of Tk 22 from each student. I do not think that amount is sufficient for a school, “said Shahan Ara Begum, principal of Ideal School and College.

Since many parents cannot apply online themselves, they must visit a local stationery store. “We saw that last year, parents had to pay 500 to 1000 Tk to these traders to complete the application. So what will be the benefit of Tk22 for a school? She asked herself.

She also said they could be admitted manually as exams and in-person classes are ongoing.

According to her, all private schools were charging 150 Tk instead of 200 Tk and public schools were charging 110 Tk instead of 170 Tk due to the covid-19 situation.

Dulal Chandra Chowdhury, Principal of Eskaton Garden Secondary School, said, “The government is trying to follow the developed countries system, but we have to ask ourselves whether we are capable or not.

Traditionally, all public and private schools have admitted their students in several ways – some opt for the lottery system for first-class aspirants while others run written and viva tests for students in grades two through eight. Students wishing to be admitted to class nine are taken on the basis of JSC / JDC results.

However, the past year has been exceptional as students in grades 1 through 9 were admitted on a lottery basis due to the pandemic situation.

Bangladesh school and college students returned to class on September 12 after an extended pandemic-induced shutdown.

The government closed educational institutions on March 17, 2020, after the country reported its first cases of Covid-19 on March 8, then extending the shutdown on several occasions.
