Day II of parents’ protest

Parents of six underprivileged students of Carmel Junior College in Jamshedpur, who launched an indefinite strike on Monday to demand promotion of their wards, continued their protest on Tuesday.

According to them, the principal has demanded 50 per cent of the total annual fees to let the children attend class from next session that begins on March 21.

Six UKG students, enrolled under the reservation category, have been denied promotion to LKG, as the school has not yet received funds earmarked for RTE.

“We have sent letters to the chief minister, Jharkhand State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (SCPCR), deputy commissioner, but no one replied. We only want that the children should not suffer,” said Jaya Machhua, one of the protesting parent.

However, an SCPCR member showed some hope.

Sanjay Mishra said funds would soon be disbursed to private schools. “I can assure that money will soon be disbursed to schools,” he added.

The only hitch now?

District superintendent of education Indu Bhushan Singh needs to send a written request to SCPCR for the same.
