ABVP ACTIVISTS STAGE PROTEST IN FRONT OF SCHOLAR’S HOME SCHOOL
Dehradun - The activists of Akhil Bhartiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) protested in front of Scholar’s Home school here on Wednesday. The ABVP workers alleged that the school management is selling books from a stall opened inside the school premises at higher prices to the parents.
The students belonging to the ABVP reached the school located at the Rajpur road and shouted slogans against the management for increase in fees and charging more on the books and stationery. The Additional District Magistrate (ADM) G S Gunawant reached the spot and held talks with the agitators and school management on the issue.
The hegemony and loot of the private schools has forced the social and political organizations to raise their voice against them. The education department has opened a complaint cell at the office of District Education Officer (DEO) Primary to register the complaints against these schools.
On the basis of these complaints the education department has given show cause notices of 40 schools of the city. The department has warned to take strict action against those schools which are not following the provisions of Right to Education (RTE).
