According to the report shared by the Ministry of Education, most learners apart from Grade 4, Standard 8 and Form 4 resumed school for their second term of 2020 on January 4, which went on up to March 19, giving way to break of seven weeks. On May 10, schools opened for the third term of 2020 which run up to July 16, a period of 10 weeks, after which they went for a week break.

Most learners may not reopen school next week as parents have no money due to harsh economic conditions in the country. Fear of possible massive dropout has gripped some learning institutions owing to the fact that many leaners may fail to return to school next week for the second term due to lack of fees.

According to the parents had guardians who spoke to us raised concern that the condensed school calendar has made it impossible for them to raise school fees especially with the current hard economic times brought about by the Covid 19 pandemic.

The tough times have pushed some to get exorbitant loans from informal lenders with no clear repayment plans. According to Ministry's calendar schools closed for term one of 2020 on 02/10/2020. Therefore the holiday will last for the next one week. Then all students and learners are expected back to school on 10th October 2021.

Therefore it is bad new to parents and guardians as they struggle to raise fees in the next few days.
