Universal High at Brahmand Thane has hiked its fee for the academic year 2011-2012.
It is a steep hike and has been taken unilaterally i.e. without the concurrence of the the PTA. While fee hikes are justified they must be done with due process.
Given that the Universal High Management makes lofty statements about "being the change you want" etc, the least one would expect is that they are law abiding not only in letter but in spirit as well. If the law mandates a PTA in all schools and a fee hike only after discussion with the PTA, then one would expect that from the management of Universal High.
As parents we have a right to be given and a duty to accept the opportunity to participate in the education of our children via the PTA.
We invite the participation of parents, teachers, Univ High school management, educationists, PTA networks in Mumbai etc to join in this thread. Lets discuss how we can make the difference.
And yes, it would be most heartening to see the Univ High School Management itself be the first to take initiative and really 'walk the talk'. That will also be a vindication for parents that we have made the right choice of school for our ward. Something tells me we have.
