The members also urged the parents to sort out their all issues with the management of the schools before approaching the Directorate of the schools.
The members observed that if immediate steps are not taken and higher authorities apprised about the contribution of the private schools in improving the standard of the education in the state, negative impression will spread among masses which will prove detrimental for the education system.
During the meeting it was also resolved unanimously that PHD Kashmir Chapter Chairman Mushtaq Chaya will be urged to take up the matter with Governor of the State for immediate redressal of the issue.
During the meeting, Chairman Education Committee, Showat M Chowdhary also assured the members that Jammu and Kashmir Joint Coordination Committee of Private Schools would take up the matter with the concerned authorities and ensure that fee fixation committee also intervenes and regulates fee.
