Parents’ body wants an equal say in management
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.
