After boycotting six schools, AMSU declares 'social boycott' of nine more schools

The union declared that they will not lift the boycott unless the schools take back their orders to collect student fees during the lockdown.

 

Three days after boycotting six private schools for collecting tuition fees during lockdown, the All Manipur Students Union (AMSU) on Saturday declared, “Social Boycott” of nine more schools in the state.

The union declared that they will not lift the boycott unless the schools take back their orders to collect student fees during the lockdown.

The schools are Maria Montessori School Koirengei, Nawa Sindam Shang Thoubal Kshetri Leikai, Shishu Nistha Niketan Mayaikoibi, Comet School Changangei, Herbert School Ghari, Millennium Institute of Sciences Mayaikoibi,Froebel English School Kanglatongbi and Olivia English School Kanglatongbi.

Appealing to the parents and guardians to not cooperate with the decision of the said schools to collect the tuition fees, the AMSU said the union had already informed all schools to abstain from collecting tuition fees starting from April.

A release by Human Resource Development secretary AMSU, Bruce Pebam stated that the union has no objection in admission process of the students but only made and appealed not to collect the tuition fees for the students during the lockdown period.

On October 28, the union has also boycotted six few schools in the State for trying to collect student’s tuition fees for the lockdown period. The state government has ordered the schools to not collect tuition fees for the month of April to July, but the latest order directed the schools to collect 30 percent of the monthly tuition fees, the release added.

Such a confusing order of the state government can be considered as an invitation of agitations and protest from the pubic the release added. Further it also demands that the commissioner of education(s) should revoke its order dated October 5 which directed the private schools in the State to collect 30 percent of monthly payable fees.

Earlier AMSU boycotted MECI Explorer School Changangei, Paree Imom Singdamshang Langjing, Tiny Tots English school Dewlahland, Bright Foundation School Thoubal Khetri leikai Tomjing, St Xavier School Moirang and MEM school Ghari
