New Delhi: The AAP government will appeal the Delhi High Court's Thursday order restoring the management quota in private unaided schools for nursery admissions, said Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
"It is duty of the government to provide better education to the children in Delhi. We will appeal against the court's order," tweeted Sisodia, who holds the education portfolio.
The court, however, accepted 11 criteria proposed by the private schools' association in place of the 62 criteria scrapped under the January 6 order, having said that some of the 62 criteria fixed by private schools for nursery admissions were "untenable".

Justice Manmohan, in an interim order, stayed the January 6 circular of the Aam Aadmi Party government that scrapped 62 criteria, including the management quota, saying it was passed without approval of Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung.
"We welcome the court's decision but will continue our efforts to bring transparency in admission process at schools," Sisodia said in another tweet.
