In Addition to, the state education department said “That no school shall expel students of Class 1 to 8 for not depositing tuition fees during this period and doing so is violation of section 16 of the Right to Education Act”.
Official Statements on Govt’s Order:
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.”
“Self-financed schools need to pay salaries to the teachers and other staff. No state in India has taken such decision that fees cannot be collected despite conducting online classes. If we adhere to the state notification, it will be impossible for us to pay salaries and run the school. Thus, we have decided to suspend the online classes” said by Jatin Bharad, a prominent educationist and member of the association.
