10. Why Are Interviews Unfair for Admission
To admit young children in nursery from the age of three or four, private schools generally conduct interviews of children a few months before the ensuing session. Children are thus subjected to a ‘test’ and/or an interview at an age when they are around three years or so. The author argues that any testing at that young age is not only unfair to the child and his parents; it is also derogatory to child’s self-esteem from the perspective of child development principles.
