School fee regularization in Telangana State

This petition had 415 supporters

Respected Sir,
There has been so much stress on parents right from the birth of their kids about their education and parents income, there are many instances where parents did raise this concern but these appeals are left unheard.
Objective of this petition is to bring all the like minded people together who feel education should be made more affordable at least for majority of the citizens and let the high profile schools continue to offer costly education to the people who can offer the same.
There should be an appropriate control on fee structure based on facilities provided, schools just cant incrase the fee based on their wish and leave parents with no choice.
Details as follows
Per news Article dated 7th July 2014
The government has issued certain guidelines to the managements of private schools on collection of fees from students in order to collect uniform fees but the managements give the guidelines for collecting exorbitant fees from the parents of students. The government has constituted a ‘fee regulatory committee’ with higher officials of the government to fix the fees payable to private schools. Private schools are charging Rs 18,000 to Rs 45,000 from LKG students and Rs 30,000 to Rs 90,000 from 10th class students though they do not have proper infrastructure Like play ground etc.
During the present season the private schools are collecting thousands of rupees in addition to the normal fees in the name of giving coaching for EAMCET and IIIT. It is doubtful whether students aged below 15 years can bear the pressure of such load of education on a regular basis. Blaming parents for their non-cooperation with education officials on the matter, “They are not complaining about collection of exorbitant fees in schools. I have personally visited several schools in the city and interacted with students and parents on fees but they were not ready to reveal the amount of fee they actually paid.” V.Narsimha Reddy, a parent, said, “My son is studying Class X at a private school. The management has demands Rs 35,000 from me. I told them that I can pay only Rs 30,000 and requested them to allow me to pay even that in two instalments. If I lodge a complaint with officials, my son may face harassment.” Mallesham, parent of another student, said that any government orders on controlling private schools would not succeed. “On record, schools collect government- fixed fees but collect whatever they want unofficially. If the government enforces its fee structure and cracks the whip on erring managements, maybe, students will not have access to quality education,” he said. Private Schools Association said, “We have represented to the chief minister and education minister on fee hike. The GO had been issued five years ago and we cannot run the schools with that fees.
Contrary to other major Indian cities, Hyderabad doesn't have any govt regulation to control pvt school fee hike.
Some schools even completed thier admissions for 2018-19 in the month of July / August 2017 itself.
