The Supreme Court held the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa private school registration and June-July Fees Case. Where the court dismissed the schools’ request against the order of receiving half fees of June-July months.
The school lawyer Salman Akram Raja said that every school does not charge fees in thousands, Schools will go bankrupt if they do not take fee for June-July. He added that his client only charges Rs. 15,000 per student annually.
The Chief Justice said that he will discuss the issue with the parents and students and then he will disclose the court’s decision. CJP observed that Beacon House students are paying 25 to 30 thousand, but private schools must only ask for legitimate fees, as forty-five thousand per student is not justifiable. He then asked, “Is it mandatory that the only Beacon House School earns profit?”
The court issued a public notice in response to the request of private schools and ordered to publish the notice in Urdu and English Newspapers, while all costs of printing the notice should be paid by private schools.
