New Delhi: All In­dia Par­ents As­so­ci­a­tion (AIPA) has writ­ten to the min­istry of hu­man re­source devel­op­ment, fol­low­ing news re­ports of the gov­ern­ment work­ing on a model for cap­ping of pri­vate school fees. The or­gan­i­sa­tion made a few sug­ges­tions, such as 50% rep­re­sen­ta­tion of par­ents in the man­age­ment of un­aided schools and bind­ing every pri­vate school with the fee cap. They also want play schools to come un­der the act.

TOI first re­ported on Cen­tre plan­ning to bring in a reg­u­la­tion to check ar­bi­trary fee hikes by pri­vate schools. The move comes af­ter the suc­cess of UP gov­ern­ment’s leg­is­la­tion, brought in this year, to reg­u­late fees charged by pri­vate schools.

AIPA sug­gested that the com­mit­tee de­cid­ing the fee cap should also fac­tor in lo­ca­tions of the schools, avail­able in­fra­struc­ture, among oth­ers.
