    Such open undefined window will exploit parents. Guidance or approval should be given by the ministry before the extra fees is charged.

  2. Nash says

    I wish it was followed to the latter, schools are adjusting school fees at will in the name of motivating teachers, teachers trips and they do it openly as if the government has allowed. I know of any school that parents paying 53k for fees and 22000 for development and teacher motivation. Please make national schools work for the average mwananchi
