Hundreds of people held a demonstration outside Rajghat on Sunday to protest the “arbitary” fee hike by private schools in the city.

The protest was organised by the All India Parents’ Association (AIPA), at which participants underlined the need to reform school education.

They also demanded initiation of criminal proceedings against 25 private schools indicted by the Comptroller and Auditor General recently.

“The AIPA has also written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, seeking an effective central law to check arbitrary fee hike in unaided private schools, as well as for upgrading all government schools to the level of central schools,” a statement by AIPA said.
