Private schools just seeing 10% to 20% drop

GOA: Many private schools across Goa are not just seeing a 10% to 20% drop in their existing enrolment, but new admissions for the academic year 2020-21 have also been meagre. With pandemic-related job loss and pay cuts, many parents are unable to afford private school fees and are shifting their children to state-aided schools. In this scenario, it is some of the smaller private schools that are finding themselves on the brink.

Just as government schools were affected after many families returned to their respective home states during the lockdown, several private institutes said their students are leaving the state as their parents’ tourism-related businesses or jobs are no longer viable. Aparna Palyekar, who runs the school Blooming Buds in Calangute, said that a large chunk of her enrolment was lost after the families had to down shutters on their businesses in the coastal area.
