Hyderabad Education officials had drawn up criteria for members of school fee commission.
Hyderabad: Parents are conflicting the entrance of private school managements on the fee supervisory committees even as a group containing senior officials from the state education department is making its recommendations on the problem to the government.
Parents wish to have neutral members —financial experts like chartered accountants and retired judges— to be share of the panel to be organized for each district, as per Supreme Court guidelines.
The Hyderabad School Parents Association had said that retired judges from district courts should be wished to head the district panels, the state group should be headed by a pensioned off High Court judge.
“Having unbiased members for the district fee supervisory groups, as in the case of the Admission Fee Regulatory Committee, that chooses fees for specialized courses, should be the precedence. The opinions of stakeholders could be sought but the group should be sovereign and include experts,” association joint secretary Venkat Sainath Kadapa told.
There were variances of view regarding schools coming under the purview of these governing bodies.
Though the school managements want organizations in GHMC limits with a tuition fee under `40,000 exempted from the purview of the supervisory bodies, the parents association needs the panel to supervise all private unassisted schools in the state capital.
Fee fixation will be completed by the panel looking at outflow, infrastructure, faculty, number of students and other issues.
Members of the Telangana Recognized School Managements Association had a spat with senior administrators over the non-inclusion of school managements in the government-appointed board. The two main associations had announced that they would not present their opinions until they were given illustration.
