KLS school parents against unjust fee hike
The parents of the KLS public school Tilakwadi Belgaum gave a memorandum to the DC regarding the unjustified fee hike done by the school management.
The memorandum states that the school has done an unjustified hike in school (tuition fees) and asked the parents to pay the same by April 30th in one go and not in installments.
There were various meetings of the parents and management of the school and in the latest meeting held on 10th April, 2012 the management decided to reduce the fees by Rs.600 but the parents agreed to only a 10% hike. But the management did not heed to the request of the parents. One parent also said that management said if you cannot afford to pay the fees you are free to shift your children from here.
The management said that they have 67 staff members for which they have to pay salaries and hence a Fee hike is very much required.
The parents also complain about buying uniforms from only selected shops and also paying higher than MRP on books being sold by the school.
It may be recalled that the parents had come together and raised their voice against the working of the principal of Amrita Vidyalayam last year and they also succeeded.
Now it will be eager to see how the administration reacts to this situation.
