CWP expresses concern over increase of fees in private schools

ISLAMABAD, Aug 10: Consumer Watch Pakistan (CWP) has expressed its concern on the immense increase of fees in many private schools and colleges in Islamabad.

Several parents have approached the CWP and have declared such increases as unfair and unbearable. Parents belonging to the lower and middle income groups are disturbed as they are eager to provide quality education to their children but are faced with serious financial difficulties, the CWP said in a statement.

The CWP has urged the Education Ministry to take serious note of this situation and take appropriate steps to ensure that private schools charge fees that are fair and justified.

The CWP also demanded the Education Ministry to immediately establish and strengthen the private schools management regulatory authority (PSMRA) to monitor the performance of private schools and hold them to account with parents' concerns and quality issues. Daily times
