KARACHI: Exorbitant hike in the fees of private schools in Karachi has left several parents anxious about future of their children.

On Friday, a good number of angry parents staged a rally on Shahrah-e-Faisal, protesting against the steep fee hike by Foundation Public School and other private education institutions of the city.

They said the unprecedented annual increase in tuition fee is violation of the court that prohibits the raise in tuition fee by more than five percent.

Last year in October, the Sindh High Court threw out the petition of city’s private schools for increasing their fee more than five per cent. The court directed Sindh education department to enforce the restricted increase in fee and submit quarterly the audited accounts report of the private schools in the court.

A large number of civil society members and students also joined the protest, carrying placards and banners inscribed with slogans against the private schools.

The protesters urged the school administration to return the extra fee, calling upon the provincial government to take notice of the situation. – Samaa
