House conveyed their concern and said the schools had been closed
down without any prior intimation. No homework was given to the students before
sending them on leave, they said.
The parents were disappointed with what

information about the closure of the schools. "When I contacted the school
management to inquire as to how long the school will remain closed and what will
the students do during this time, I was informed that answer to those queries
have been put on the website of the school," said a father.
"Now let me
know, how many of us are computer literate and how many have access to computer.
Isn't it the duty of the school management to inform us about the homework of
the students," said the parent who wished not to be named.

they could not afford a waste of their time as well. They said the school
management should discuss things with them and any decision on the school
closure or security measures should be taken in consultation with
One serious matter that the Beacon House School System needs to
focus attention is to form and activate the Parent Teacher Associations (PTA).
These forums have been introduced in the public sector schools to discuss
important matters with the parents.
Beacon House, which is the most
expensive school system, does not have any PTA at all and if there is any in
some branches it is not active or autonomous in taking any decision, said
another parent. The local management of the school has no power to take any
decision and follow instructions from their headquarters, he added. The news
