Memo against private schools submitted to Shimla ADC

The School Parents Association Friday submitted a memorandum to the ADC, Shimla.

The School Parents Association Friday submitted a memorandum to the ADC, Shimla, complaining about the heavy increase in fee by private schools. The association said that the private schools had burdened them during the Covid outbreak by enhancing the fee. It alleged that the schools were pressuring them to deposit both annual and tuition fees together, which was beyond the means of many parents at this time. The parents threatened that if their demands were not met, they would launch an agitation against the government.
