In Bengaluru, a dispute between the Daffodils English School Association and certain parents has intensified, resulting in seven Class 9 and 10 students being issued transfer certificates (TCs) for allegedly not paying fees. The school had barred these students from entering since February. Some parents raised concerns about violations, such as the fee structure lacking government approval. The standoff has been ongoing since 2018, and the parents approached the Karnataka State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (KSCPCR) with complaints. The school, supported by the Parents Teachers Association, defended its decision, stating that warnings to pay fees were ignored. The school is a private unaided institution and relies on collected fees for financial sustenance. The situation remains complex, with parents seeking the reinstatement of their children and the release of vital documents.
