PHC Bars Private Schools from Charging Summer Vacation Fee

Peshawar High Court (PHC) has stopped private schools from collecting summer vacation fee, directing the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Private School Regulatory Authority (KP-PSRA) to enforce its verdict in the province.

The court has ordered the private schools that have already collected the fee for summer vacation to refund the fee. KP-PRSA had also barred private schools from charging a fee for summer/winter.

The regulatory authority issued a circular on May 30, 2019, stopping all private schools from charging summer/winter vacation fees.

Chief Justice of Pakistan, Asif Saeed Khosa said that the private schools can increase their fees over solid reasons. “The Sindh High Court has ordered five percent increase in fee annually, while in another decision, the court ordered approval of a regulatory authority for fee hike as mandatory,” he said.

The top court maintained that if the schools increase the fee, they should also increase the salaries of teachers.
