Parents/Guardians cry out, say school fees at registration is a nightmare!

Registration at Secondary Schools has been turning out to be a nightmare for some parents and guardians.

The Ministry of Education has stated that schools are not to charge any money for registration at learning institutions.

However according to parents and guardians who have the responsibility of registering their charges, astronomical costs are making the process very difficult.

They say that in some instances parents are made to feel intimidated and the entire process is frustrating especially if they do not have the funds to cover the costs of the fees being demanded.

In fact one parent told News Power Now that she was told purchase of five new uniforms for her daughter was mandatory and this was a source of anxiety since she did not have the money to purchase all five uniforms.
