Hyderabad: Distraught parents of school children, here on Friday launched a missed call campaign to promote their demand for regulation of fee structure in private schools.
As part of the campaign, parents can give a missed call on 8686004050 and the Joint Action Committee for School Regulation Fee would make a list of the callers and submit a petition to the government.
About 70 parents including academicians came together to prepare an agenda on the fee hike issue. Child rights activist Prof Shanta Sinha said that the constitution provides the right to education and schools cannot deny anyone on the pretext that they are unable to pay capitation fee.
She further added that RTE has mandated to form a school management committee in each school with the parents as members and all kind of grievances can be addressed in a committee itself.
Hardly any school in the city has such a committee. Retired Justice B Chandra Kumar extended his support on the issue and assured that he would provide his services to parents.
Marri Channa Reddy Institute of Human Resource Development chief general manager M Bullaiah who was present on the occasion said that he would discuss these issues with the School department.
