The Ministry of Education has been the latest to defend the parents as schools open for the second term this week.
Professor George Magoha urged Headteachers and principals to look for alternatives on how to keep students in schools without sending them for arears.
He reiterated that the parents are facing a lot and most of them lost their jobs during the covid-19 pandemic and are struggling to get fees for their children.
The parents complain that they have not been given enough time to look for fees. The students had very short break of one week something that parents feels it is not enough to get all the fees.
The school calendar has now changed completely. Schools open this week for the second term. The
term will have 11 weeks and therefore students will close on 23rd December.
The economy of the country is very high with rise of fuel and fuel-made products. The parents need support from the government to keep their children in school.
On the other hand the school heads argue that they need money to keep the students in school. They want the ministry to give them the alternatives.
