The case of misbehavior made by a private school principal for demanding fees in a video is going viral. There were claims that it was the video of Holy Family Convent Girls School, Kolkata. But, the video is of Bishop Scott School, Patna. In fact, the head of the Bishop Scott School in Patna was not only abusive about the school fee with a female guardian, but also attempted to snatch her mobile, on which she was videoing the fee issue.

Taking a tough stand in this matter, the department has ordered an inquiry against the school management.

Director of Primary Education Ranjit Kumar Singh has ordered an inquiry against the School and a two-member investigation team has been formed in the entire case. The director said clearly that during the lockdown, the government had ordered that there would be no transportation charge and even the school would not pressurize for fees. Taking the whole matter seriously, the department has ordered RDDE Surendra Sinha and DEO Jyoti Kumar Patna to investigate the entire matter.

The department clearly said that such behavior in the education sector will not be tolerated at all. Two days ago, the video of Bishop Scott Girls School went viral in which the school principal had taken away her mobile while misbehaving with a parent. This happened only because the parents had opposed the transportation charge.

Parents' Association President Sanjeev Pathak has also written a complaint to the Patna Commissioner, DM, Education Department and National Child Protection Commission on the whole matter and said that strict action should be taken against such schools so that the exploitation of children and parents is stopped.
