Private schools warned against charging security fee

Islamabad

Islamabad
The Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) has directed the PEIRA, the regulator for private education in Islamabad, to ensure that no local privately managed school or college charge security fee from students.
The directions come in light of complaints that some private schools have increased fee in the name of measures taken on the premises for the security of students and members of staff in the wake of the massacre of schoolchildren in Peshawar in December 2014.
Minister of State for CADD Barrister Usman Ibrahim asked PEIRA Chairman Omar Hameed in a meeting on Wednesday that no private educational institution was allowed to enhance fee for increasing security checks on the premises and that if any educational institution did it, action should be taken against it under Section-16 of the Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Authority Act 2013.
“It is the prime responsibility of educational institutions to ensure security of students and staff members on the premises and therefore, asking parents or guardians for additional fee for the purpose is unjustified and not permissible at all. All those charging students security fee should be dealt with security,” he said.
