Parents' Association to file contempt petition

Unhappy with the composition of the core committee for regulating fee charges by unaided schools, the Bangalore Parents’ Association will file a contempt petition in the High Court on Wednesday.

“The court had directed the formation of a core committee which was supposed to be  followed by a one-day seminar with the participation of all stakeholders. The stakeholders included teachers, parents and board representatives.

Though the core committee was formed, it had representatives only from the Education Board, leaving the rest of the stakeholders out,” Ashok Adiga, the President of the Association said at a press meet here on Tuesday.

The Court, in February, directed the government to deliberate with stakeholders on the issue of unaided schools charging exorbitant fees. The order was passed in a petition filed by  Sai Prakash against the Sarvodaya National Public School (ICSE).

Adiga said the Association would also look into increasing number of unauthorised schools under ICSE and CBSE Boards.
