Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Sept 21: The Department of School Education last week issued an order that the private schools would not charge any admission fee from students for academic session 2020-21, however on ground the situation is totally different.
A leading private school that is part of the educational society operating across the country has already charged the admission fee from the students and the concerned department knows about the same as well. The school has charged at least Rs. 1, 25,000 from the children who have got admission in the school.
“The school has many branches in the country including the Kashmir valley. It has schools in Srinagar, Budgam, Anantnag and Baramulla districts of Kashmir valley. The school completed the admission process in quick time and charged at least Rs. 1, 25,000 as admission fee from the students,” said sources while sharing views with Early Times.
The sources said that yet another private school that has pan-India presence including Srinagar has also completed the admission process while charging hefty amount as admission fee from the students. The school management that comprised of both locals as well as non-locals has charged the admission fee in the range of Rs. 1, 00,000-1, 25,000 from the students.
“The order issued by the Department of School Education has remained confined to the four walls and it has not been implemented by the leading private schools. One cannot rule a fixed match in this regard and in-action from the people at helm in this regard suggests that many a slip between cup and the lip,” said sources.
Sources said that the admission process is all set to be completed in the leading missionary schools of the Kashmir valley and one cannot rule out that these schools too would charge hefty sum as admission fee for the upcoming academic session. This has been the practice in the past and at the end of the day it is the common man that suffers since he is coerced to pay the admission fee.
“Everybody is aware about the hardships being faced by people in Kashmir valley after the last year’s turbulent political situation and this year’s Covid-19 pandemic. The people belonging to middle class category are finding it difficult to make the two ends meet. Given this situation how can these people get their wards admitted in leading private schools,” said sources.
Sources said that if the infrastructure is upgraded in the government schools and less known private schools the parents of children would have more options when it comes to admitting their children in schools. They said for this the government has to pull up its socks and make the people accountable in the system.
