Schools Warned On Fees Hike

Chairperson of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Primary and Secondary Education, Ms Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga says Schools that have hiked fees without approval, even when the institutions remain closed as part of efforts to fight the spread of Covid-19, should be censured.

She said this while presenting a report on the committee’s assessment of preparedness of schools for the 2020 examinations following the outbreak of Covid-19.

Schools are required to seek permission from Government before increasing fees, but some have increased without requisite authority.
