Education



Outside one of the prominent schools in Delhi.  The parents have to stand on the roadside to pay fees, submit leave applications for their wards, or make an appointment with a teacher or the principal.

  2. You should visit Kolkata to see the serpentine lines in front of the reputed schools at the beginning of each session! And the fees...rocketing upwards. Total commercialization of education.

  3. Sad. The most important basic need after food, shelter and health is education. But alas! don't know when will our politicians and society understand it's importance over and above religion.

    1. The guard at the gate was courteous enough to explain to me the importance of security in a school. But I failed to understand why a school that has ample space, numerous buses, and huge building cannot construct a small room for the parents and visitors.

  6. So, now the parents of the students are a threat to security? The parents pay exorbitant fees for their kids. And the school can't build a parents room!
    Now-a-days, schools are reluctant to spend money on parents, teachers, or students. Then, where does all the money go?

    1. In the eagerness to get seat in a good school, parents forget or ignore such miseries. We accept too many things without questioning, this is our problem.
