Can we cap the donations and fees of private schools?Another academic year has gone by,family and children would be on vacation. As families enjoy the summer holidays, some would have an apprehension in the back on their minds.
The apprehension would be about funding for a new academic year, funding for enrolling their kids for the first time in the nursery and higher standards.
As parents, we want to give the best to our children, a good head-start and as a trade off we abide by the norms dictated by the good private school brands. It is this simple desire/wish that the private institutions/ schools cash on. We at times struggle to pay the ridiculously high donations, building funds and or annual tuition fees.
The government recently capped the fees on some medical implants/devices (stents/joints etc). Can the government or the key education policy makers, set the fee slab for the respective classes based on the infrastructure,standard of teaching imparted etc? Can parents fight against the high costs?
