Private school charges 13 months fee a year!
PARENTS AGHAST, SEEK COM SECY’S INTERVENTION
Srinagar, Feb 21: The parents of class 12th students studying at a private school with CBSE curriculum have accused the institution of charging 13 months of fee for a year, or else the wards wouldn’t be allowed to appear in the annual exams scheduled to be held in March.
A delegation of parents told Greater Kashmir that the administration of the school on the City outskirts was not issuing roll number slips for the finals till they clear the fee including that for the month of March.
“Why should we pay fee for the month of March when the students have to appear in exams that month? Nowhere does it happen that fee is charged for 13 months a year,” the annoyed parents said.
They said the school administration had taken them for ride.
They appealed the Commissioner Secretary Education, Naseema Lanker to look into the matter.
“This is sheer injustice and the government must make these erring schools accountable for their misadventures and minting money out of unfair means,” the complainants said.
