The Punjab and Haryana High Court has allowed private schools to take tuition fee during the lockdown implemented due to coronavirus. Justice Nirmaljit Kaur allowed schools to collect enrollment fees. The order came on the petitions of Independent School Association, Punjab School Welfare Association, Association of Accredited and Affiliated Schools and some other organizations. The court said, "All schools are allowed to submit tuition fees regardless of whether online classes were held during the lockdown."
The court said that though schools will have to continue their efforts for online or distance education, so that the current or future lockdown due to Kovid-19 will not affect education. According to the order, parents who will not be able to pay the fee will have to apply with the necessary certificate regarding their financial status. The school will consider it sympathetically and will be exempted in whole or in part.
At the same time, some time ago the director of CBSE said that for the right education of children, cooperation between parents and school management is needed. CBSE Training and Skill Director Biswajit Saha said during an e-session on education that "parents and school management should cooperate with each other for children's education." Actually, there was a complaint from the parents that some private schools are taking fees for tuition fees and other things, while the schools are closed for a long time. During the lockdown, only limited online classes of children are taken. In such a situation, it is wrong to demand fees for things other than tuition fees.
