The Telangana Education Department has released a government order to introduce a new website for all private and unaided schools, including those affiliated to the CBSE (Central Board Of Secondary Education), ICSE (Indian Certificate For Secondary Education), and Cambridge boards on Wednesday, 30 August.

As per the order, the private schools are asked to enter the details of fee structure, incomes and expenditures for the past three years on the site. This move is seen as a victory for the parents who had been protesting against fee hike.

As reported by Deccan Chronicle, “There should be continuous monitoring of schools throughout the academic year to ensure that extra classes, tournaments and other events are organised with the extra fees mentioned in the accounts,” says a chartered accountant, Vishnu Venugopal.

The deadline for submission of the details is 15 September. While most of the schools have not been informed about the order, strict action will be taken against those schools who will fail to abide.

The principle of Indus Universal School, Mr S Shankara Chary said, “I am yet to receive information about the order. Obviously, some schools will not feel comfortable sharing this data.”

Although parents are optimistic about this step, they hope that it will bring in more transparency. They also fear that data may be meddled with.

“The data entered by schools will not be accessible to the general public. It will be available only to the school management and the education department,” said Srinivasa Chary, the district educational officer of Warangal.

Parents want that they should be involved in the implementation of this government order. A Hyderabad School Parents’ Association member says that the centre has been successful in regulating fee hike through quick action.

A website is also given to the schools where they have to upload the mentioned information.

The Logical Indian appreciates the initiative taken by the Telangana Education Department and hope that it will bring transparency to the education system.
