Some corporate schools are selling uniform, study material and notebooks, belt, shoes and tie to students to make a fast buck. For study material, the corporate and the private schools are collecting Rs3000 to Rs 5000 from each student. The corporate schools are forcing the parents to pay the last dues and term fee too.
Meanwhile, following the orders of the government, the schools have begun admitting students. Private and government schools have already started conducting online classes to students through Zoom conference. At present the government schools are conducting baseline tests to the students to assess the education standard of the students. Based on that, the teachers will conduct the special classes to the backward students.
