I disagree with you on paying school fee.
Majority of the parents are salaried and repaying bank loans. The schools are minting money for the past several years and unlike Delhi, there are no such strict laws curbing schools to refund of excess fee charged to the parents. Every year hike in the school fee is un justified and it should be made compulsory for every school to submit quarterly income and expense report and till then they are stopped legally to ask for school fee.
In the present situation when everyone is adopting work from home culture, and schools have started online classes, the burden on the schools have drastically reduced. The maintenance have come down and most of the schools have stopped paying to the temporary staff.
Till the lock down is lifted by the Government, the schools must continue paying the salaries to the teachers from the interests incurred from many years from CAUTION MONEY deposits. The Management and the Principals to take 50% or less salaries during this period.
In my opinion, the schools to adopt 4 days school with 1 day online classes and 2 days holidays. This way the transportation burden will also be reduced from the parents and reduced fee to be charges.
THE SCHOOLS MUST START WORKING ON NO PROFIT NO LOSS principle. The future is there.

Unfortunately your profession will tell you that the majority of private schools are teaching shops for making money and they provide learning but not wholesome education. more
