all india parents & association (aipa) against raised fees
All India Parents’ Association held a meeting and decided not to bow down before schools’ cruel fee-structure. Most of the city’s school’s have raised the fees to support infrastructure costs and increased salaries of teachers. The new structure has been approved by the government. But AIPA is adamant to oppose it tooth and nail.AIPA claims that DoE makes it mandatory for schools to get AIPA’s approval in case of fee-hike. But no school did it. The 15 and 20% increase is too much to break the bones of the parents who are already suffering under price-rise of essential goods and bus fares.Parents are holding protests near concerned offices to hold back schools from increasing fees. They call it unjustified hike.
