Posted: Apr 28, 2018     By Avishek Dubey

Complaining about discrimination in behavior against their children, parents along with All Noida School Parents Association (ANSPA) staged a demonstration against principal and management of Bal Bharti School on Saturday.

People alleged that the behaviour of principal and teachers is not good against the children whose parents protested against fee hike earlier.

K Arunachalam, ANSPA secretary told City Spidey that school staffs changed their behaviour towards some children.

“School staffs said to the children that their parents always create a nuisance in front of the school by protesting and they will throw their notebooks into the dustbin without any reason,” Arunachalam said.

Parents also demanded rollback of the fee hike and also wanted the school management to implement the recent Fee Regulatory Act 2018-19.

“It has been more than 20 days since Uttar Pradesh government passed the ordinance but all the school managements have not implemented the Act, we want schools to implement this soon,” Arunachalam added.

On April 13, members of ANSPA and parents of the Bal Bharti School handed over a letter to the city magistrate, Mahendra Kumar Singh, demanding a rollback of the fee hike and implementation of the Fee Regulatory Act 2018-19.

“The school principal, Asha Prabhakar always give the threat to parents that if they will not pay the school fees, she will lodge an FIR against the parents,” Arunachalam said.

Earlier on April 9, Asha Prabhakar, school principal, sent a notice to parents of six students claiming that it was indeed very painful that on the pretext of seeking an appointment with the principal on fee-related issues, parents made a video footage of the talks without consent and released it on various WhatsApp groups.

The notice further said that the school had CCTV footage for the incident, and if parents didn’t delete the video, the school will lodge a police complaint against them. But she has not lodged any complaint to police yet.

City Spidey made several calls to Prabhakar but found her mobile phone switched off every time.
