School security fees in private schools in Lahore have again embarked on a campaign to fleece parents. Now without providing the much needed security the payment of security fees has been made mandatory. Two months fees during summer vacation has become has become an established practise. School van contractors are also following suit by charging the transportation fee for the vacation period It appears the government has allowed the private schools association to loot students and parents. Many school owners are closely connected with government functionaries whether they are former or sitting members of the government. This is misuse of power bordering on in justice. The state of Pakistan has abdicated its responsibility to provide security education and health to its citizens.
