The Public Interest Litigation is likely to come up for hearing next week.
The petitioner said that it will help avoid interruption in studies, harassment of students of certain categories after passing Class 8 and help them in completing their basic education.
"After Class 8, students from Economically Weaker Sections and other disadvantaged groups are asked by schools authorities to leave because they are incapable of affording fee from Class 9 onwards," the plea said and added that such students are left with the only option to join government schools.
"Since government schools are Hindi-medium, these will not only be highly prejudicial to students' interest but also defeat the very object of providing free education in an unaided private school," the plea added.
The PIL also contended that apart from the different mediums of instructions, the academic atmosphere is different in government and private schools, which will cause prejudice to the said students by not letting them complete education till Class 12.
