In what comes as a welcome change, thanks to the pandemic, the parents in Hyderabad have finally realized that it is time to change their children's schools. It is known that the new-age parents send their children to schools that charge exorbitant prices, even for kindergarten. But looks like that is going to change now.
With salary cuts and high fees that the schools are charging for online classes, many parents opt for schools that charge lesser fees than the fancy ones. For instance, if a parent was paying Rs 40,000 for two children per term, they are now opting for schools that probably charge Rs 16,000 per term.
Due to cuts in perks, many parents are now looking for quality-oriented yet budget schools to help their children get a good education while not being a burden on their purses. Suddenly, the parents question the reason behind high fees for school-going kids.
The parents are also trying hard to get the schools to enforce the fee regulation norms but have failed in most instances. Many complain that education is just a business for most schools, and the management is reluctant to slash the fees despite the post-pandemic crisis.
It was logical for some parents to take their children off from fancy schools as they had a new addition to the family. According to one parent, he could no longer afford to pay Rs 1 lakh for his son.
