Will take action against overcharging of fees by schools: Director DSEK

SRINAGAR: Director School Education Kashmir, Tasaduq Hussain on Sunday warned of strict action against any private school involved in overcharging of school from parents of students.

Speaking on the sidelines of the inauguration function, he said that nobody is above law and the department will definitely take action against those who are charging extra fees from students.

Replying to a question about inaugurating a private coaching institute, Hussain said that he was here for providing quality education and the private educational institutions are their co-partners.

“I have come here to inaugurate a private institution as they are helping in bridging the education gap which has been left due to the pandemic. Wherever education is provided, we will support them. We are with education,” he added.

About the reopening of primary schools, he said that the guidelines regarding Covid-19 are provided fortnightly by a designated committee. “The committee takes everything into account like infectious rates, new variants of COVID-19 etc. As of now, according to their guidelines only 20 students are allowed per classroom to attend offline classes,” he said.
