The Government has put everything in place to ensure that all the learners become safe in schools.The resumption of schools today for the commencement of the 2021 academic calendar has come at a time when the parents are confused with the issues of school fees and the costs of the required CBC books.
On a good note,the Government has drastically reduced the school fees by 15% in both the boarding schools in national schools,Extra-County,County and Sub-County schools.This has been so due to the fact that the number of weeks will be reduced from 39 to 30.But even if the parents are relieved,the school headteachers are lamenting that the capitation fees is meagre and cannot sustain the students in schools.
The ministry of education has been warning the schools against increasing the school fees.In most cases,some rogue Principals have done this and have walked away with it.
Inorder to ensure that the students are protected,TSC has decided to come in and support the ministry of education in the fees issue.The schools that will charge extra fees are in for a rude shock as TSC has announced taking action against them.This is indeed a great reprieve to the students and the parents.
