Public school fees “shock” Education Minister

Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga expressed surprise at discovering how much school fees will cost at some government schools next year, but is not in a position to change the status quo.

Motshekga’s disapproval comes after finding out that some of the schools had chosen to charge over R30 000 for tuition for the year 2013.

The Minister blamed the schools of “privatising public education”, making it too expensive for some parents’ budgets.

A media survey revealed one of the most expensive schools, from Durban, will cost R31 111 next year.

The most costly school has not yet been disclosed, as some schools have not examined theirs.
