Once again, a victim parent has raised his voice against a well-known school in Pakistan and his concerns need to be taken action against.
A parent’s right to provide his children with quality education!
On Thursday, a resident of Karachi who’s children are currently studying in the education elite Beaconhouse School System posted a video on his Facebook that grabbed a lot of eyes. Buying the course for his child who’s currently in 2nd-grade in Becaonhouse, Imran Durrani, the father was shocked when the total bill came up. Rs.11400 for the course of a 2nd-grade student was charged ONLY because of the school’s indifferently strict policies.

These days nearly every privately owned school has implemented the ‘buy only school provided course’ and it is just another trick to make money. Becaonhouse had distributed their printed packages of the whole course for every grade along with their own imported stationery to every bookseller and stationer and the parents are forced to purchase only that. An amount of percentage has also been set between the seller and the school on sale of every package which is believed to be 8%.
Paying the school first and then the seller with his commission”, where should parents go?
According to the father, the course of a 2nd-grade student if bought normally cost up to Rs.5000 to the max but the one provided by the school in spite of being the same thing charged him Rs.11400. And the school is selling the course of a 3rd-grade student for more than Rs.13000 and it is too much. Plus the stationary they sold for Rs.4000 doesn’t cost more than Rs.1200 and it seems like these privately owned schools are literally sucking parent’s blood in the name of education.
