Speaking to ANI, Venkat, vice president of the Hyderabad School Parents Association (HSPA) said the association had requested an appointment with the director of school education but had not yet received one. So we decided to protest by sending her the two boxes of complaints and flowers.
“We have received complaints from parents in all Telangana schools. There is a common problem everywhere that schools do not follow GO-46. We have asked for an appointment with the school education director, but have not yet received one. So we are sending her complaints along with flowers, “he said.
Seema Agarwal, a representative from HSPA, said: “We are making this unique protest because schools are not following GO-46. Private schools charge full fees. GO-46, issued by the Chief Minister, has two points. One is the fee cannot be increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, and second, only a small tuition fee can be charged. ”
She added that private schools have manipulated the fee structure and have not lowered fees.
“Parents’ income has been impacted by COVID-19. Our request is that either schools only pay 50 percent of the total fee or the nominal fee stated on the CBSE website,” Agarwal said.
Shehtaj Khan, a parent who attended the protest, said they had asked the administration for permission to hold a protest. However, as large gatherings are not allowed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, their application was denied.
“Our problem is that the government and administration aren’t implementing GO-46. Parents of around 200 schools in the state are with us. If parents don’t pay the fees, their children are removed from online classes, giving them the right is withdrawn for education, “said Khan.
