Yes private schools are draining money from parents more and more by saying they are providing this and that other than school curriculum. They are not wrong as the main resource for their exploitation is parents only not any government. Many parents, in present days, do not have time to spare with their children in their busy schedule and they want to entrust the children into the schools with fully engaged. Besides this parents are more ambitious that their children should get IAS before their 18th year. For that they want the schools with more extra curriculum such as bus facilities, Air conditioned class rooms, abacus, swimming, indoor and outdoor games, etc., They are expecting such activities from schools without minding the distance and fees. By taking advantage of their such 'good' intention, the schools are collecting alarming fees from the parents. Rich people do not mind this hefty fees but middle class people suffering as anything as they are for prestige sake approaching such schools for their children and later suffering in due course. It is better to approach Government Schools, according to me, the Government schools and government aided schools are not inferior anyway in standard of teaching.
