» Shame on school authorities
This refers to ‘School faces parents’ rap for charging book money’ (MM, April 25). It is very depressing news. It pains me to say that many of our Catholic aided schools are run and administered by priests and nuns, who are very high handed and authoritarian. No rules apply to these schools – they circumvent very smartly. In 2005-2006, I was appointed secretary of the Parent Teacher Association of St. Mary’s High School, Kalina. When I protested against certain irregularities in the school, my son was singled out and tormented for a long time.
