School age rule should be more flex­i­ble

7 Days in Dubai - - FOOD -

In re­sponse to the let­ter ‘Six days means a year’s wait for school ad­mis­sion’ (March 22), it is re­ally dis­ap­point­ing that due to six days of a birth­day fall­ing the wrong side, a child could not get ad­mis­sion to school. A child is go­ing to lose the whole aca­demic year just be­cause of six days dif­fer­ence in the re­quired age. The school age cri­te­ria should be flex­i­ble to ac­count for ma­tu­rity. Chil­dren at this age are very ea­ger to go to school and they en­joy learn­ing new things. This is quite in­cred­i­ble and an­noy­ing, she felt in­fe­rior and thinks “miss is not giv­ing me ad­mis­sion”. Hope she will get ad­mis­sion soon. Fari­doon Dubai
