The Parents’Association protested at Bharat Nagar Chowk today against school managements for putting financial burden on them.

During the protest, the association wrote its questions on a board and sought answers from the state Education Department. President of the association Rajinder Ghai said the association had asked the department to answer to respond to their questions till April 12.

The association has alleged that private schools had “commercialised” everything, and parents and students were being exploited.

The parents alleged that under the garb of smart classes, admission fee, building funds and readmission charges were being charged from them every year.

“We are not even allowed to buy books from outside. The schools have made it compulsory to buy books from inside the campus,” parents said.
