The Indian School Wadi Kabir (ISWK) principal has said that it is sticking to its decision of increasing the fee from this year.
Dr D N Rao, principal, ISWK said, “We met the parents and have justified our reasons for the hike. The management has decided not to retract from the revised fee structure.”
Parents allege the school has hiked fee in the last two years unjustifiably. “Neither a circular informing parents of the hike was issued nor a meeting was arranged with the school principal or Board of Directors. For instance, in April 2017, there was an RO12 increase. In April 2018, there was another RO12 hike. This year, there will be a hike of RO34.”
Parents of more than 500 students of ISWK gathered to meet the principal and management authorities on Saturday to discuss the possible reasons and solutions to the fee hike but the meeting ended in a stalemate, the parents alleged. Earlier last week, the parents had submitted a petition to the principal complaining about the hike.
A parent commented, “The school has a bad habit of always increasing fee every year unlike other schools. This is harsh on us and unacceptable. We shall not bow down to this unfair demand every time. We came early morning to speak to him as he had assured us but he never met us. The school authorities are not even open for any discussion with us.”
