Act on schools defying Ministry directive
EDITOR – Despite the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education warning day schools not to send children back home over unpaid fees as the economic situation is challenging most parents, at some schools in most parts of the country, students are being sent back home. This leaves parents confused as to why the schools are defying a Government directive.
Truth is, no parent wants to see their child out of school and they would pay at once to avoid inconvenience, but for resources at hand.
The Minister Cde Lazarus Dokora must intervene and deal with schools that are sending pupils home as well as encourage the formulation of payment plans between parents and schools.
It is my sincere wish that this issue is rectified early as students are losing valuable learning time. Some students don’t even head home but engage in other activities.
The future of this country lies in these generations, let us all play a part to ensure that they achieve their goals. Sharon Goredema.
