Leela Jamwal appealed Hon’ble Minister besides all this constitute a governing body which will check how many schools didn’t follow the rules & regulations & rules of Fee Hike Committee, order school to refund admission Fee charged by them from parents on the name of building Fund, renovation fund or admission charges. Making all private schools to follow CBSE and J&K board regulations as mentioned on their respective websites, on Display board of their school as well on social networking sites.
Leela Jamwal said very few private schools in Jammu & Kashmir have uploaded the details of book-lists, fees structure, how many uniforms they have & after how many years uniform will be changed etc on its official website. However, in order to maintain transparency, the district administration officials had asked all private schools to bring the details of book-lists prescribed for each class, fee structure etc in public domain by January 31 in upcoming session.
Bavita Rana appealed to Hon’ble Education Minister to upgrade the facilities provided in Government Schools as Government Schools lack basic facilities with well educated stall at the same time Private Schools take benefit & got opportunity to loot public at their will as everyone is curious of their kids & try their best to provide better education.
