Parent:- Why the hell i should pay you fee of February and March if my child is already admitted in a good formal school. It is a wastage of my hard earned money. Give me certificate for my child attended your school for six months.
Result of this conversation:- Parent goes on google and write the worst kind of review of school and spreads cheap rumors about the school and management.
These are a few instances of parents' behavior towards pre-schools where parents misbehave with schools. As a pre-school owner, I pledge to provide good quality education, safety and security to my kids but where are my rights? When Our PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji talk of startup's we are lacking in the finance backup from the government. If any of people like us dare to start our own ventures by taking loans on our golds and properties, may i have the privilege to know our rights as well. I personally have witnessed lots of misbehavior and misrepresentation of the schools by parents. There are no rules and regulations for pre-schooling in India, no curriculum and no standard practices, no governing body. We also need a governing body.
Today opportunities in preschools are increasing due to the increasing awareness of parents about the need of preschool in a child’s development. Another reason is shrinking families that are looking for the options for their children. Also, the ability to pay for quality education has improved in India in the last few years. Now there is a demand for better facilities and trained staff coming in. Earlier preschool means parking the child when you do not have anyone to look after them. Now parents are looking at preschool beyond this but still a lot has to be done on the awareness level.
d. There should be a proper governing body for pre-school education just like CBSE.
e. All schools should be registered with the governing body.
f. No school should be allowed to run without the registered license to get from the governing body.
g. Keeping in mind the safety and security of child, every school should follow certain rules for fire etc.
h. fee should be decided as per the facilities provided by schools and the governing body should decide that.
i. Government can decide to provide free study material or any other aid whichever it deems suited.
j. Some seats can be reserved for poor kids and can be educated on less price provided it is funded by the government.
k. If all these things are implemented, quality of education can be improved in India.
