With most schools expanding fees for the coming scholastic year, guardians of ICSE and Popular schools in the city should spend no less than 20% to 25 % more on the current fees. Many schools, were at any cost , wanting to climb the charge by a similar edge of 20%, which they say is generally observed each year.
In a recent case of a private school in Annapurna Area Indore had hiked their current fee by 25% without prior notice. This is a major shock for the parents whose children are studying in that school. They started protest against the fee hike and contacted the higher authorities for this huge increment in school fee.
To destroy the protest and make the fee hike credible the school attempted another trap. They somehow figured out how to get the best school award to show how fruitful they are in the education sector.
It clearly shows that these private schools can do anything to valid their unreliable fee hike.
Many parents say they are not against paying more charges if their kids are getting quality education.
While school management is stating that hike is necessary. Upkeep cost is rising and school management acquire a much measure of costs purchasing segments for classrooms and enhancing infrastructure.
In closing we would like to say that you can’t increase your fees by 25% without a notice period. If you are doing that you must have solid reasons to prove the fee hike valid. You just can’t increase your fee just by showing the “Awards”.
