Peshawar schools refuse to give fee concession
PESHAWAR, Sept 21: Private schools have termed the provincial education
department's notification regarding half-fee concession to the siblings studying
in the same institutions as 'misinterpretation of the law'.
press conference here on Wednesday, Nazar Hussain, general secretary of the
National Education Council, said the department should review the notification
issued in 1992.
He said the private educational institutions had decided
to take the issue to the court for interpretation of the law.
He said the
notification violated the Education Code of 1935. Mr Hussain claimed that the
concession was given to teachers' children only as mentioned in the Section 106
of the code.
According to press report, the education department has
decided to take action against the schools which charge full fee from the
siblings studying in them.
The department is reported to have decided in
a meeting to cancel the registration of schools that are violating the
notification issued on Aug 24, 1992, which bound them to charge half fee from
the siblings except the eldest studying in the same school.
said some parents had taken the issue to the Peshawar High Court in 2003 but
they withdrew the case four years later after consulting lawyers and the
education department. Dawn
