This is a matter of concern for parents as more and more schools are becoming insensitive to the finer things of a neutral school environment and education system,” Jain added.
“We would like to know what a school will do with five pieces of gujias from each student.
Ghaziabad: The All School Parents Association (ASPA) took to Twitter on Thursday to protest against a school in the district that has specifically asked students to bring five pieces of the traditional sweet ‘gujiya’ from a particular sweetshop chain for the coming Holi celebrations in the school.The association termed it an exercise of business promotion and brand endorsement.
Also we demand why a certain shop is specifically mentioned for this purchase.
What the school suggests to a student holds great influence on parents and children but we should never allow it,” Jain said.She said ASPA would soon issue a circular to schools to only suggest generic item names.“If the schools want children to bring a sweet, they can do so without suggesting a brand name.
