After speaking to several other parents I realised that I had not done the right thing by getting my kid admitted to GIIS, Whitefield, Bengaluru. Most parents are of the view that the school overcharges the fees for everything. What is even more worrying is that when they collect fees from parents - whether it is for books or stationery or uniform or transport, they keep a percentage for themselves from all such heads. Even though CBSE guidelines clearly state that schools should not profit from the provision of basic services, they are clearly making a cut on all heads of expenses. Which leaves us wondering whether it is a wholesale business or an educational institute? So me and many of the other parents withdrew our kids from this school.
