-The decision of Supreme Court regarding 100 percent of fees to be paid is not acceptable.
-Parents say that paying even 70 percent of tuition fee is not accpetable as the schools have been closed for a long time.
The interim decision of the Supreme Court regarding payment of 100 % school fees for the academic year 2020-21 is not acceptable to the parents. Meetings of the Parents Association are being held constantly in this respect.
The Supreme Court said that the private schools are free to take 100 percent school fees which is not justified as the financial condition of the parents has also suffered in the pandemic era. In the last meeting, parents had stated that they are not in a position to pay even 70 percent of the school fees as their jobs have also suffered affecting their finances which have gone from bad to worse. The schools were closed for a long time and no such expenses have been incurred by the school. The parents also said that even online classes have not been good enough, so paying 70 percent is not justified.
The regional head of the Parents Association informed that it was discussed in the meeting that schools must now decide upon the fees based on the expenses they have incurred for the education of the students. The parents are agitated with the decision of the Supreme Court and have refused to pay the fees unless the schools produce a record of their expenses and decide upon the fees to be paid on this basis.
The agitated parents are now deciding upon various strategies against the decision of the Court by means of sending postcards and show-downs.
