Admission to Nursery class in Delhi Schools is a stressful and hectic job for parents. Recently Entrepreneur and former Judge of Shark tank India, Ashneer Grover took to social media X (formerly Twitter) and shared the challenges faced by parents while trying to enroll their children in Preschool.
The Bharat Pay Founder of the X writes, "It’s tougher to get your 4-year-old kid admission in Nursery in your preferred private school, than it is to enter IITs. At least in Delhi NCR. Ask any parent who has gone through the process in last 10 years. Demand for coveted schools far outstrips supply. If nursery school seats were auctioned in Delhi NCR, IPL would be the 2nd highest auction in the country ;)"
After his post was widely circulated, X users also shared their opinions on this matter.
Punit Modhgil, who claims to be entrepreneur writes, "Home school them. You are smart parents. Not worth leaving this to overpriced, hugely overrated schools."
Another user @@RldAman comments, "I wonder why parents go for these hi-fi 5-star schools only bcoz of peer pressure… What is the success rate of these schools??? Have they produced any Nobel prize winners or Olympic gold medalists."
However, @Ashish87652264 gives his opinion to the Entrepreneur and says, "English medium film jaise aap bhi gareeb banke quota Lelo. Uske baad oo..hoho..ho"
