Hapur, 14 September: The UP State Child Protection Rights Commission has expressed its displeasure over the school administration preventing a student from attending online classes in the event of non-payment of fees.
The Chairman of the Commission has written a letter to the District Magistrate (DM) and directed to take action against the school administration.
The girl’s father has also written to the District Magistrate complaining about the matter.
In a letter, student’s father Piyush Saxena told to the chairman of the UP State Child Protection Rights Commission Vishesh Gupta and District Magistrate Aditi Singh that in February, he had got admitted his daughter Riddhi Saxena in class four in a school in Preet Vihar. At that time he had deposited the admission fee and the tuition fee of three months.
“Meanwhile, the government announced a lockdown as the corona infection began in March. Due to this the student could not go to school and she started on-line classes. Three months later, the school administration demanded tuition fees from them, and they demanded exemption from fees due to weak economic conditions and no activity in the school. However, the school administration refused to grant any exemption,” a father wrote in a letter.
He told in the letter that the school administration stopped his daughter from attending the online classes due to inability to collect the fee. While the state government had given strict orders not to stop any students from attending online classes in the event of not being able to pay fees to all school operators.
The school administration has also violated the order of the state government.
He has demanded to allow his daughter to take part in online classes and to take strict action against the school administration. In this case, the school administration refused to make any comment.
The chairman of the UP State Child Protection Rights Commission Vishesh Gupta has written a letter to the District Magistrate and directed to take necessary action and allow the student to participate in online classes.
District Inspector of Schools (DIOS) Nisha Asthana said that the girl’s guardian has complained. The orders of the Chairman of the UP State Child Protection Rights Commission and DM will be followed in this regard. The matter is under investigation.
