Thane, 11th July 2022: Thane Police school, located near Court Naka, has communicated to the parents that only those students who have paid the necessary fees will be allowed to attend the school. The order has been sent to the WhatsApp group of the student’s parents.
The school didn’t stop here but has taken a further step by sending a list of eligible students who can attend the school effective 11th July 2022 (today).
The school meant for the wards of the police personnel is managed by ‘Goenka & Associates Educational Trust’ (Vasant Vihar High School, Thane).
Speaking to MumbaikarNews.in, a parent said, “The motto of the school is “modesty adorns knowledge”, however in reality students are not allowed to come to school as the fees have been paid to the school by cheque, but as of know the cheque has not been deposited/credited to the school account.”
Another parent added, “In the era of Right to Education, this kind of injustice with students in the district of Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde has come as a surprise to the public at large.”
Now parents are planning to approach various forums for justice and support from the government.
