The All Manipur Students’ Unio (AMSU) today reiterated its stand against the collection of 30% school fees from students of private schools during the lock down period.
Talking to media persons at its head quarter, Human Resource Secretary of the AMSU , Bruce Pebam lambasted the government authority as well as some owners of the private school on their decision to collect 30% school fees from the students and payment of 50% salary to private school teachers.
“What is the motive of the government in issuing the October 5 notification for collection of 30% school fee from students? And why the school authority reciprocated with the government in paying 50% of the salary during the hard time , when all life were put to halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic?”, Bruce question the authority.
He said that the students have already paid school admission fees and during this hard time the school authority should sacrifice by managing the payment for the teachers from the admission fees. Saying so the HRD Secretary said that the government cannot put all the private school and treated in a similar way as some have few students and some have excess number of students.
Bruce question the private school authority on why they are reluctant to produce white paper of the expenditure and income of the school and why the government is not taking up any action to any of the private schools which have failed to submit the details of the expenses and income of the schools that the private owners runs.
Since April , all life have been put to halt and people particularly the students community has been facing the toughest time. For those poor students it is more difficult, Bruce said.
He warn the government to make it clear that people and the student communities be set free from any form torture and also warn of dire consequences if the decision of the AMSU to relax school fees starting from April till the pandemic continues is not followed. Bruce also said that they have information about some school collecting fees from the students by intimidating them and those fees collected in the way should be refunded at the earliest possible time.
