Petition to Mr. Narendra Modi, Hon'ble Prime Minister of India

Petition to control the compounding fee hike by Pvt. Schools. Plz sign-in and share others

Esteemed Sir, Now a days the monthly Tuition Fee charges by Pvt. Schools / Education Institutions are very very huge which is non-bearable by Upper Middle Class people to Lower Class People. when the fee charged by Pvt.Schools are started from Rs.40,000/- P.A. from LKG Class student now, his tuition fee will be Rs.2,06,020/- p.a. in class X, and Rs.2,20,000/- p.a. in class XI if it continues with present compounding % Hike rate. In fact, the earning of a genuine white money income person will hike on this rate? or, schools are paying salary to their employees/teachers in this growth rate? Then why there's no any breaking policy in this system? The collections made by Schools in different form (In terms of monthly tuition fees/Book Selling / Annual Function / Smart Class / Activity fees),is really expended in appropriate manner ?? If some developed schools and its each Managing Body would inspected through CBI, the fact would come to public. Is the School Trust is helping to develop the Nation or, they individually developing themselves using Public Money and Property.  !!! First of all I'ld suggest the DAV Public School, Unit-8, Bhubaneswar and its Trustees would investigated through CBI. In fact, Now Schools are enhancing the fees minimum 15% each year (on previous year fees) on compounding way. Moreover when a child jumps from one class slab to other class slab, the hike percentage is crossing 22 to 30% on which coming years hike will be calculated. Plz see the picture above "Tuition Fee matrix" of a School is clearly presented here, when this year LKG going child is paying Rs.36,840/- per annum, it will be Rs.2,06,020 p.a. when he will reach in Class X. and Rs.2,20,000/- p.a. on Class XI. Now all most all citizens even in lower class people wants to give good education to his son/daughter to be at par with competitive educated society. So a lower income citizen also seeking a good schooling for his/her child in terms of sacrificing his life time effort and remaining in hungry also.  But our Education System is like this: The System of govt. Schools affiliated to State Board is very poor and administration is very poor. Teachers in Govt. Schools are busy with hesitation or, pvt. tuition due to failure of State Govt. Mechanism. Now all most all parents are eager to admit their child in CBSE/ICSE affiliated Schools. But it's found very rare Central Govt. Schools and Heavy rush in these schools.  So most of us are compelled to admit their child in Pvt. Schools affiliated to CBSE/ICSE. And all most all such School Management are running their Schools as Business Centre. Neither there is direct control by State Govt. nor by Central Govt. so these school management are free to accumulate their Black money in the name of giving Quality Education. They are exploiting public (those wards are admitted in these schools) in the name of Quality Education, in the name of development of Infrastructure, in the name of salary to the teachers. In practical, is this happening in the hike rate of Fee they are collecting from Parents? Who is looking after this ? They have designed their system to hike the fees on compounding percentage of previous year tuition fee. Cleverly the schools are picking up some parents as PTCC through lottery system each year and very rare meeting with them and object is to pass the fee hike proposal in PTCC Meeting in the end of the education year for coming year. Now Schools are in a trend to hike min.15% hike on last year tuition compounding fees. Also it's 20 to 30% compounding hike when a student jumps from one slab to another class slab. (ie. lkg,ukg: Slab-1 to Std.I-III: Slab-2, Std.IV,V: Slab-3, Std.VI to St.VIII: Slab4, Std.IX & X: Slab5,  Std.XI : Slab6 and Std.XI,Sc. is Slab7) School Authorities are also playing game in this PTCC Meeting keeping in their hand  in different form to  Higher Secondary PTCC representatives as they have in their mind to Quit within couple of years and their child should not targeted by the School. In fact, the compounding fee hike is  coming burden to the parents admitting their child in lower classes. PTCC Members are not acting as Parents Representative but they are playing role to raise their hand being influenced by School. And we must consider,  within a year how outside person can understand the school account system? It's also too much time taking and professionalism required to investigate all those that's why PTCC Representatives compels to sign in the fee enhance memorandum. If such situation continues, time will come when it'll cross the situation like "Farmers Suicide in every state" Now Parents are started suicide for their children. Its colorising as Farmers Suicide now. Is the income of a person hikes in the rate school is taking fees? If it continues what a parent can do for his child for his Higher Studies..? On this situation Younger Generation also refusing to get marry and Lower middle or Middle class people fearing to bring their new generation seeing this Money Exploitation in the name of Quality Education.  Now people have hope only our Honb'le Prime Minister Mr. Narenda Modi who is constantly fighting to eradicate corruption from the country and trying to give good governance to the people of India. Considering the situation repetitive petitions may please forwarded to our Honb'le Prime Minister to form a Central Regulatory Authority to control Pvt. Schools: What'ld be the major responsibilities of such Regulatory Authority? - To formulate Policy for Rationalise Tuition Fee Structure. - To emphasize Safety & Security of the students within & outside the Campus. - To take Severe Action on Violating the formulated policy and on neglecting or, harassing any student. - To prepare Year wise ranking on performace of the school, should published on public portal of Education Dept. as well as in Medias of Local News Papers. - Severe Action for very low rating schools. - Special Grant-in-Aid/Award for best performing Schools to its management and their name should highlighetd in public media. - Policy to formulate for involvement of Parents representatives/Regd. Association to participate in Management Committee (not taking random parents as PTCC representative through lottery) - To enforce cash-less transaction (not only taking tuition fees from parents but in terms of any petty expenses / collections of the school) - Fixation of Teacher/Principal's Salary not more than Govt. Teacher/Principal's Salary. - Policy for Recruitment/ Engagement of Contractual Teacher and Any other manpower - To make policy for re-formation of management authorities/Administrative auhtorities (part-wise) in a regular interval. - Audit should made by CAG and it'ld published on respective school website (Detail year wise clear Financial Summary). - All schools should cover under RTI and sever punishment on violating to give clear information. - There should be mandatory Publication of School infrastructure, Qualified Teacher and thier remunaration,class wise Teacher-student ratio, rationalise development plan in respective school website PLEASE FORWARD TO EACH INDIVIDUAL AND OTHER WHATSAPP GROUP / Social Medias after  your Positive sign-in in this petition.

Update Computer Science syllabus for Class XI and XII

The syllabus for Computer Science for Class XI and XII in India is totally outdated. This petition refers to the C++ part of Computer Science, not Python.  We currently use C++98 standard for making applications and projects! It is quite absurd to note that the standard we currently use is so different than the latest one, and we still use it. Many of the students ask our Computer Science teacher about this, and we get a single reply - It is the syllabus. We can't do anything (The traditional reply that unites all the CS teachers in India). This seriously should not be the case for we the students in India! There has been new standards of C++ like the C++11/14 standards. We need to update our syllabus to match those standards. If we are going to update the standards of C++, then the Turbo C++ IDE too should be pushed out of the system. It supports only C++98, thus is of no use further.  God knows why we are using the IDE when even the manufacturer discontinued it and moved on to release newer IDEs. I propose we can use Microsoft Visual Studio for out C++ development. 99.9% of the schools have computers that can run at least Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. For the rest of the schools, we can upgrade the computers. More funding should be provided for improving the infrastructure of the Indian Educational Institutions! More importance must be given to updating the syllabus to match the current trend in computer science!
