KARACHI: Following protest by parents against exorbitant hike in school fees, the Sindh education department has issued notices to Karachi’s 30 private schools, Samaa reported.

According to our correspondent, the Directorate Private Institutions has noticed 30 major private schools seeking details of recent hike in tuitions fees.

The directorate has called a meeting of schools’ administration on Sept. 18 and has issued a form for institutions to provide three-year details of monthly fees collected under the head of computer education and security, according to a copy of the notice obtained by Samaa.

Separately, Sindh Education Minister Nisar Khohro has taken notice of the situation and has called a meeting on Thursday regarding registration policy of schools.

On the other hand, parents and members of civil society members continued their protest outside Karachi Press Club, urging the government to rein the school mafia.

Reports said only five per cent of the total private schools in Karachi are registered. - Samaa
