With just days to the opening of the third academic term, the Ministry of Education has once again warned the school heads against unnecessary increment of fees which has led to increased school drop outs.
George Mutekanga, the Assistant commissioner in charge of Private Schools in the Ministry told press that the ministry had been informed of schools which have increased tuition without following the set up guidelines
“All schools before making revision in school dues must seek permission from the Permanent secretary of Ministry of Education on top of consulting the parents, ” he said.
Many schools however, have since disagreed with this procedure and come up with new school fees structure for next term, which the Ministry says it will not allow
“We shall summon all defiant schools and once we find that they didn’t follow the guidelines we shall punish them by either withdrawing their UNEB center numbers or cancellation of their Licenses” he warned
“Parents should be the first people to report such schools because wherever there is an increment in the school dues its them to suffer most”
