Indore: Despite instructions from administration not to deny students online education, Shri Vaishnav Bal Mandir Girls School removed several students from online classes citing non-payment of fee, claimed parents.

Protesting against the school, parents shouted slogans outside the school premises until SDM Parag Jain and Indore-I MLA Sanjay Shukla came to help them.

“Denying children education and forcing parents to pay full fee in such difficult times shakes the establishment of our society,” Prateek Tagad, parent representative, said. He added that school had earlier assured them of following administrative guidelines and considering relaxation in fee.

“We had met the management a couple of months back; they assured us that the decision on fee will be taken with consent from trustees soon, but they have not announced any relief as such,” another parent Sapna Somani said.

Parents demanded 50 percent relief in fee, citing that only online classes are being conducted and families are facing financial strain due to coronavirus outbreak.

After SDM and MLA reached the spot, school principal Abha Jauhri agreed to meet 5 representatives from parents. In the meeting, she assured them of holding a meeting with trustees on January 11.
