Absurd fees

Newspost

 
January 17, 2020

Private schools are expected to provide a superior education and the best teaching staff to their students. This is the reason that many parents desire to send their children to private schools. Unfortunately, the private schools exploit this desire via an exorbitant fee structure, which permits only children of affluent families to attain a private education.

Though there has been a declaration by the Supreme Court of Pakistan calling for private schools to limit the increase in their fees, the private schools are reluctant to obey the apex court. Owing to this pathetic situation, parents are forced to submit a summer vacation fee. Forcing parents to pay a large sum for the summer vacation period is plainly ridiculous. It is high time that the authorities took action to reduce these absurd fees.
