Srinagar, Mar 7, KNT: Parents and students Monday staged a protest against the merging of a private school against their will in Srinagar.
The school in question is ‘Orbit Girls School’ located in Peerbagh Srinagar that according to parents has been merged with ‘World Foundation School’ without taking them into confidence.
The protesters raised slogans against the school administration and concerned authorities.
“We received a WhatsApp message from the Principal of the ‘Orbit Girls School’ on 17 December. We thought parents have been called over ‘fee row’ but to our shock, we were informed that this school has been merged with another school. The school administration took this unilateral decision after collecting fee from all students,” one of the protesters told news agency Kashmir News Trust.
“‘We are against this merging and seek the intervention of LG Manoj Sinha and Director Education. We have been deceived,” the protesters said. (KNT)
