Career Guidance To Classes XI, XII Students Crucial

New Delhi: Highlighting the importance of career guidance to schoolchildren in classes 11 and 12, the Delhi High Court has said the establishments must confirm there is an appropriate system of counseling in place in schools. Justice Sanjeev Narula said it is important that schoolchildren are encouraged about decision-making courses and directed the Delhi government to observe the issue of providing career guidance to school students in consultation with specialists.

The court approved the order on a request by an “exemplary student” who unsuccessfully sought admission to Delhi University, allegedly on account of his school not cautioning him that two of the subjects he chose for class 12 were not considered “main” subjects by the varsity, which involved a penalty of 2.5% of marks at the time of admission.

The court declined to grant the statements required by the supplicant but said if students are made mindful of the admission rules of different universities, it will help them make a knowledgeable decision about their subject choices.

“It must be emphasized that career guidance for students in classes XI and XII is vital. It is indeed important that students be advised in this decision-making method. “Respondent authorities, who educate informed students, must step in to protect that there is a suitable system of therapy in schools, career guidance programs, and career fairs to assist students,” said the court in its recent order. The court recorded that though the Delhi government counsel concurred that such systems must be in place, “he is unable to readily cite the same.”

“As a result, the recent request is clear with a route to the GNCTD (the Delhi government) or DoE (the Department of Education) to observe this subject in discussion with specialists in the field, and if any gaps need to be filled, they may do so by issuing appropriate directions to schools,” the court ruled. 

The court denied the petitioner’s request to cancel his school’s CBSE affiliation, stating that “improper career counseling to some students cannot be a ground for de-affiliation or de-accreditation.

It was also practical; there was no foundation to gripe that the petitioner’s excellence was not voluntary and that the school should have disapproved of or rejected his option.
