Act on schools de­fy­ing Min­istry di­rec­tive

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

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.
