English-Medium Schools: Guardians demand 50pc tuition waiver

A section of guardians demanded 50 percent tuition waiver from all English-medium schools, as authorities are only conducting online classes. 

Bangladesh English Medium School Parents Forum, in a press conference at National Press Club, said many parents are going through financial hardship, so authorities should take the situation into consideration.

The forum convenor AKM Ashraful Haque and member secretary AZM Salahuddin made the six- point demand.

They said students should not be barred from classes due to delay or non-payment of fees, and an autonomous regulatory body should be formed to oversee school activities.

Other points include ensuring quality education at all English-medium schools by formulating an acceptable policy; formation of school managing committee with representation from guardians; and keeping tuition and other fees at an acceptable level.

"We want the prime minister's intervention to meet our demand," Ashraful told this newspaper.

Earlier in June, Obhibhabok Oikya Forum, a platform of guardians, demanded full tuition waiver from all non-government schools and colleges due to the financial crisis.
