COIMBATORE: A group of parents staged a sit-in in front of a private school in Pollachi on Tuesday, demanding the school administration to adopt government-fixed fee norms. Finally, the school administration also agreed to comply with the parents’ demands.
According to sources, the parents staged a sit-in since the school administration demanded excess fees from children even though it had earlier promised to collect government-fixed fees.
On information, S Natarajan, DEO of Pollachi Educational District, and police personnel rushed to spot and persuaded the parents to withdraw the protest.
“We have asked the school administration to display the government-fixed fees on the notice board so that all parents would come to know about it. We have also asked the school to issue receipts to parents for fees paid,” Natarajan added.
