The politics of fee hikes.

WHILE on the subject of schools, Pune's Rosary School had to face angry parents after it suddenly raised its fees from Rs 1300 to Rs 1800 per month. The incidents of parents raising their voice against fee hikes by private schools are on the rise and often the frustrated parents resort to taking the law into their own hands.

The state government appointed a committee for looking into the issue, but ended up allowing a fee hike of upto 50 percent. It is not surprising that the state is working in the interest of private educational institutes as over 70 percent of them are run by politicians. The education barons' list includes Sharad Pawar, Vilasrao Deshmukh and Gopinath Munde among others.
