Reduction in school fee for FY20 and flexible payments for parents.

Reduction in school fee for FY20 and flexible payments for parents.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!


With the prevailing financial challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting in jobs/salary cuts to most parents of the school going kids, it is in realistic for the private schools to demand even the previous year fees. Though we do agree that this pandemic has hit all sections of the society including the schools and its staff, but charging the same fee as from previous school year and enforcing the parents to pay by a certain date or quarterly is to be considered insane!

Secondly, while most private schools have started online schooling, wherein the infrastructure is of parents including the ownership of care taking during schooling duration. It adds more burden financially and personally on parents and still the school expecting the same fees for such schooling is to be considered unfair! 

Hence on behalf of the parents of such private school kids, I am requesting the Karnataka state government to interfere and provide standing instructions which could be clear to the schools in terms of direction on how fees to be set, with flexible payment options.
