Hyderabad: Representatives of the Student Federation of India (SFI) on Monday laid siege to the office of School Directorate in Saifabad demanding introduction of a comprehensive law to control and regularise fee structure in private schools and cancellation of unrecognised schools. SFI State president and secretary Noor Mohammad said that the private schools were collecting loads of money from the parents.
"The managements of the schools increased the fees by 100 per cent when compared to previous year. The corporate schools are violating government rules and regulations," he alleged. He demanded introduction of an Act which can regularise and control the fees in private schools.
He also alleged that 25 per cent of the seats as per Right to Education Act were not being allocated to poor students in schools. Demanding implementation of the Act, he said that over 250 unrecognised private schools exist in the city.
