Parents With Children In High Schools To Pay More School Fees In 2023.

Parents are in utter shock as the government gave new directives on school fees payment across all levels of secondary schools in Kenya.

Albeit the tough economic times, students in national and extra-county schools will pay Ksh53,554, an increase from Ksh45,000.

Those with children in public secondary schools outside the major towns like Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Nakuru, Nyeri, Thika, and Eldoret will have to pay Ksh40,000, up from Ksh35,000.

As we approach the festive season, parents and guardians will need to factor in additional fees ranging between Ksh5,535 and Ksh8,500.

On the other hand, students in Special Needs Secondary Schools will pay Ksh12,790 from the initial Ksh10,860 per year.

The government has axed subsidies on boarding and stores facilities which amounted to Ksh19,053 per student and ksh12,510 that covered assertive devices and additional personnel that was required.

However, the government will adhere to it's free secondary education policy, providing ksh22,224 subsidy per student in boarding and day schools.

The government will also allocate ksh4,144 for tuition, ksh2000 medical fees, ksh1500 for activity fees and ksh 200 for mathematics and science subjects in secondary schools.
