Parents: Gurugram private schools overcharging

Hundreds of parents from across the district lead by the Gurgaon Citizen Council staged a protest against private schools.

Gurugram, February 23

Hundreds of parents from across the district lead by the Gurgaon Citizen Council staged a protest against private schools. The parents accused schools of wrongful levying of fee over and above tuition fee despite the government orders. The parents claim the children are being barred from classes and examination to extort the same.

The protest was held at the DEEO office, Mini-Secretariat, where parents highlighted alleged non-compliance by schools with the state government’s directive of charging only tuition fees from the students.

“Parents are being harassed as the schools are not just charging more than the tuition fee but also adjusting the same under different heads without the consent of parents and without prior discussion. They have no justification for how a physically non-functional school is incurring operational costs similar to when functional in regular times”, said council president and local Councillor RS Rathee who led the march.

However, the private schools have dismissed the apprehensions saying that these parents have been left confused by multiple orders of the state government and a majority of them are fee defaulters. — TNS
