Unaided Private Schools’ Association, Uttar Pradesh, has announced relief for parents, whose income was hit during the lockdown period, by giving up to 20% concessions to their wards amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
“At the time when the whole world is struggling with the outbreak of coronavirus, private schools despite facing financial crisis have decided to help parents by giving them up to 20% fee concession,” said Anil Agarwal, President of the Association.
Agarwal told that this concession would be given only to those parents who have suffered a financial crisis due to the coronavirus induced lockdown.
“In this regard, a letter will have to be given by the parents in writing to the school management, and on that basis, parents will be helped,” he said.
The association’s office-bearers have decided that if such parents do not deposit fees even then, their children will not be denied for online education.
He also said all the schools of the association started online education in which a lot of money was being spent as the government had provided no financial support in this regard.
Agarwal claimed that the unaided private schools had not increased the fee despite all other expenses incurred by the schools. He appealed that all those parents who may afford should come forward and deposit fees.
