The Dayanand Anglo-Vedic Schools System, familiarly known as the D.A.V. Public Schools System, is a non-governmental educational organization in India. It is based on the ideals of the religious and social reformer, Swami Dayanand Saraswati. The DAV system also comprises colleges offering graduate and post-graduate degrees in various areas of study all over India. Its most popular branch is located in Kukatpally, Hyderabad.
Founded in 1886 in Lahore by the efforts of Lala Hansraj, it manages 667 institutions today, 461 of which are high school level institutions, with an annual budget of more than INR2 billion. These schools are run by the Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College Trust and Management Society, also commonly known as the Dayanand Anglo-Vedic Education Society. It holds the record for producing the largest number of CBSE (class Xth and XIIth) toppers as a single institution in the last 10 years. Today, institutional records of the 'D.A.V. College Trust and Management Society' are part of the Archives at the Nehru Memorial Museum & Library, at Teen Murti House, Delhi.
English is the primary language of instruction, with students also receiving compulsory education in Hindi and Sanskrit or a regional language.
It really depends on the distance and age.
When I was in elementary school I had to walk home. I lived across the street. Many kids also walked home but they had much further to go and I didn't think that was right.
In junior high (somewhat equivalent to high school) I lived on the other side of town. I took the bus for the first year, and then sometimes during the second and third year I'd walk home. That's a long walk but I would always go with a friend and avoid the creepy parts of town. Stay on a main road, have cell phones (most of the time) and make sure there would be help available if need be. We figured out how long it would take to walk home and then my parents set a time. If I wasn't home by then they'd go looking.
So really it all depends. Circumstances, age, maturity, location. Everything really matters. I wouldn't say it's not okay in most situations.

There doesn't really need to be a thread like this. You wouldn't make a what do you think of your straight friend thread. Thanks.
