Sindh Education Minister Syed Sardar Shah has said that along with taking back their exorbitant fee increases, private schools in the province will now have to ensure that they provide free-of-charge schooling to children from low income families.
Such students should make up 10% of their total enrolment, he told the Sindh Assembly on Thursday.
