Protest against Increase in Schools Fee
Petitioning: Government & Parents
Petitioner: India Petition started on February 9, 2009
We the parents protest against recent hike in school fee by Delhi government. The Delhi government passed a bill allowing around 20% increase in fees and while schools across the city contend the hike is not enough to cover the extra expenses, parents are crying foul at the decision to allow the hike.
They have to keep in mind that apart from hiked school fee we have to pay additional charges on request from school management time to time, which makes the per month fee almost double. We are not in that condition to pay these amounts specially in the situation recession.
Yearly rise in school and college fees is a speedbreaker to education. Instead, education to citizens must be of minimum fee. Please consider the petition.
