As proud parents of DPS Whitefield children, we would really appreciate your presence to welcome the Governor.

 welcome to bangalore. show me a school in bangalore which runs for the sole purpose of imparting education or show me a school which is not a ripoff. shame on the govt to not put curbs on private schools in bangalore. so called big schools rip us off big money and small schools try to earn the same badge too. lets get out of bangalore as soon as we can.

I completely agree with schoolreviewer..its high time the govt does something about it..Getting out of Bangalore seems to be the only option left......

a friend told me that the govt has stipulated a fee which is based on student teacher ratio. Schools cant exceed that. i think one of us should post an RTI and find the rules and post.

i think i can do it online, will give a try.
