State Govt’s Order to Private Schools:
The Education Department issued a circular in which it said, “It has come to the notice of the government that even during the total lockdown in the state, many self-financed and private schools were forcing and demanding fees from parents while at the same time, slashing down salaries of their teachers and staff by 40 to 50 per cent and some were not even paying them at all.”
“During such difficult times like Covid-19 situation, the noble profession of education is expected to support the students. Despite that, the self-financed schools confederation has refused to carry out any reduction in their fees. Looking at this, the government has decided that from the time schools were shut down due to Covid-19, till the time they resume, no school shall charge any fee from their students”, it added.
After the government resolution was announced, private schools’ associations held a meeting and announced the suspension of all academic and administrative work from Thursday till the decision is withdrawn, calling it “unreasonable and unacceptable”.
School Management Decision on Online Classes:
Self-financed School Management Association’s spokesperson Dipak Rajyaguru said that, “If the government believes online education is not real education, then there is no meaning of imparting such unreal education to our students. Online education will remain suspended until the government withdraws that notification.”
