CBSE schools fee hiked
Recently, some of the welfare organizations protested against the private schools and their fee hikes. But nothing changed and the fee increment is as usual this year also. Ashish Naredi, executive member of Hyderabad School Parents Association said that parents are facing problems in sending children to a private convent.
He also spoke about schools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education and their fee structure. For a common man, it is seriously not in budget to make his children study at a CBSE school.
Earlier survey reports says that parents have to cut off some of their daily aexpenditure to make children study. Parents requested Govt and education board in Telangana to take some action immediately regarding the fee hikes.
