Unprecedented hike in school fees by Baldwin Girls High School

This online petition is with reference to BALDWIN GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL ONLY.
There has been an gradual increase in the school fees over the years and this years it is a 20% hike compared to last year.
I know of some parent groups visiting school and submitting letters to the Principal, but there has not been much impact. Hence I decided to seek support from my fellow parents to support this campaign with big numbers. I have spoken to some of them they share the same thoughts on the fee structure.
This will affect the middle income group and make a huge dent in their pockets. I would like to raise questions about these specific fee components like enrichment fee, e-classroom, computer fee, etc which looks exorbitant.
Here is a reality check on the above mentioned fee.
1. Enrichment Fee: School management says that this fee (15,600/student) is collected from students for providing facilities such as Robotics and Swimming.
2. E-Classroom: Rs. 5000/- is collected towards e-classroom access and for a school strength of 5000 students, the fee collected towards e-classroom is 2.5 Cr. There are some of the best companies that offer this services at a fraction of this cost.
3. Computer Fee: Rs. 6000/ year per student. This amounts to about 3 crores from computer fee alone. What exceptional services are provided by the school that they demand so much.
As a parent we have the right to know what we are paying for and how much we are paying for. I request you all to come in support to fight this practice of pushing the parents to the corner to extract more money.
