Parents demonstrate for waiver of school fee for lockdown period

Jamshedpur: Several parents of students of different city schools demonstrated before the DSE office demanding a curb on collection of fee by schools for the lockdown period.

Led by Jharkhand Abhibhawak Sangh and Shiksha Satyagrah, the parents whose wards study in private schools said that no fee should be collected by the private schools for the lockdown period as well as for the period the schools are not opening.

They said that the private schools treat them as “ATMs” and impose unjustified fee on them.

The parents also expressed concern over the news that the district administration might allow re-opening of schools. They said that until a vaccine and proven treatment is found out, they would not send their children to schools.
