Private schools are ‘vampires’, says NC lawmaker in the Assembly

Jammu: The private schools and coaching centres of the valley have become ‘vampires’, as under the garb of education, they ‘suck the blood’ of parents, said the opposition National Conference in the Assembly on Tuesday.

MLA Budgam Aga Ruhullah said the government should put a check on increasing monopoly of private schools who are fleecing parents by overcharging fee under different heads.

“They have become vampires and suck blood of parents,” he told the House.

He said the private education sector had come with a mission of providing education but has commercialized the institutions. He also pointed out that the ‘menace’ of coaching centers should be checked by the government.

“The basic concept of coaching has died. The enrollment in coaching centres is more than the classroom in schools,” NC MLA said, adding that the owners of coaching centres are only minting money from students rather than providing education, “which was the basic concept of coaching.”
