CBSE Schools Demand Fee Hike to Maintain Additional Facilities For Students

Feb 17, 2015 14:31 IST

    In order to meet the expenses required to equip the extra facilities like air-conditioning, smart classrooms and salaries paid to the teachers, several CBSE schools in Chennai have  applied to the Fee Determination Committee to revise their fees.

    Following an order passed by the Supreme Court in January, which asked the members of the Association of Management of Private Schools (CBSE) to give an elucidation of their respective expenses to the committee to review their fee structures, more than 50 schools have approached the committee.

    According to a school principal, “The committee, without considering facilities like air-conditioned classrooms, asked many schools to increase their pupil-teacher ratio from 15:1 to 20:1 to suit its own requirements.”

    Presenting their views, some parents said that  many schools in the city charge an additional fee under heads such as sports and other co-curricular activities.

    “The applications from each school would be dealt individually after the committee makes an overall inspection of the facilities being provided in the schools and check out the cost incurred by each school,” said an education department official on condition of anonymity.
