Schools, parents, teachers form federation

Organisations of parents, teachers and school managements in Maharashtra have formed a federation that will look into commercialisation of education. Maharashtra Rajya Shikshan Hakk Kruti Samiti (MRSHKS) has even threatened to stage a protest against the state government on February 2.

On Tuesday, the samiti members listed demands and alleged education in the state was being commercialised. The samiti has demanded the government provide free and quality education from kindergarten to graduation and withdraw the private university Bill.

"The private university Bill will affect service conditions of teachers, student scholarships, etc. We also fear fees will go up exorbitantly," said P M Raut, president of MRSHKS.

"This is the first time parents, teachers and school managements have come together. It's a big thing. The state government must now immediately act on demands of the samiti," said Amol Dhamdhere, secretary of Indian Education Society.
