Hundreds of parents who have suffered financially due to Covid-19 have dropped out of private schools after taking stern action against private schools that failed to pay their fees.
Ashok Agarwal, national president of the All India Parents Association, told IANS that all such parents should consider transferring their children from private schools to government schools in Delhi so that they do not have to pay high fees.

At such times the government should not deny admission to any such student on any specific basis. Quality education must also be ensured through proper recruitment of teachers.
Poonam Kochitti, principal of Seth Anandaram Jaipuria Vidyalaya, said her school was following the necessary government guidelines. However, parents who are struggling financially are being given a fee waiver. Parents can now pay the fee in monthly mode. On special request, parents facing financial difficulties will also be able to pay late fees.
Regarding the payment of school fees during the Covid-19 epidemic, Heritage Experiential Learning School said, “Although most parents of children attending our school pay these fees, Covid-19 poses a financial challenge for many parents. We offer financial challenges Strip discount ”
At the same time, the Delhi government has decided that such students studying in private schools across Delhi, who now want to leave private schools and enroll in government schools, will no longer need to obtain transfer certificates. These students will be admitted to Delhi government schools without submitting transfer certificates. Education department officials will take transfer certificates of these students from private schools of their level.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who is also the Education Minister, said several people have lost their jobs due to Kovid-19. In such a situation many parents cannot afford to pay external fees by private schools and enroll their children in government schools. However, many private schools have been demanding arrears of increased fees for the past one year.
In case of non-payment of this amount, transfer certificates are not being issued to the children of private schools. So, in the case of TC, the Delhi government has provided this relief to the students, he said.
Kiran Pathak’s daughter is studying in class in Delhi. According to him, the new school decree that was published a few days ago has added to the parents’ woes. Many private schools are now not only charging increased fees, but also demanding an increase in fees over the past year.
According to Kiran, if the situation continues, she will have no choice but to remove her daughter from private school and send her to government school.
Manish Sisodia said the Delhi government was firmly defending students and parents in court over the increase in private school fees. The AAP government has appealed to parents to enroll their children in government schools in Delhi if they wish.
