On Tuesday April 26, the Delhi education minister made it very clear that fee hike in private schools in Delhi should be used for the sole purpose of the development of the institute and not for expanding their teaching shop empire.
This came as a response to a question asked by a student over the high fees charged by private schools and quality of education in government schools at a function organised by Bharat Ahshara Social Organisation (BASO),an NGO working to build mohalla libraries and clinics.
Recently two private schools were pulled up by the Delhi government and ordered to roll back their fee hike.
The Department of Education has asked the private schools in the national capital to submit their proposals of fee hike for prior sanction latest by May 7.
Asserting that his government is committed to improve the quality of education in schools, Sisodia also noted that not all private schools have good teaching standards.
Mr Sisodia also said he once found that Hindi medium students of Class X were not able to read properly. He also expressed concerns over the atmosphere prevailing in government schools.
