Private schools in Gujarat have concluded to proceed online classes from Monday after getting requests from parents. Even though we will continue to oppose the state government order which directed them not to collect fees from students till they remain closed, a schools’ federation spokesperson said. Over 15,000 private institutions discontinued online classes since Thursday after the Gujarat government’s notification directed self-financed schools not to collect tuition fees from students as long as they remain shut in the situation of COVID-19 pandemic.
The notification, issued on July 16, also asked these schools not to hike fees for the academic year 2020-21.
Managements of various private schools met on Saturday evening and concluded to proceed online classes from Monday after considering requests made by parents, Self-financed Schools Federation spokesperson Deepak Rajgurusaid.
He said the schools will continue to demand the withdrawal of the state’s notification regarding the tuition fees. They will not open their offices or communicate with the education department until they get justice.
Rajguru said nearly 16,000 schools had discontinued online classes to protest the “inhuman and insensitive” decision of the state government.
“In these three days, many parents’ organizations contacted us using social media, text messages and phone calls, saying they are willing to continue online education, as students get to learn very well,” he said.
“Considering their demands, we met online on Saturday and concluded to proceed online teaching,” he said.
