Warning From Goverment to schools, not to force parents to pay for registration fee.

 

The Department of Basic Education said that they have been overwhelmed with calls from parents whose children couldn’t be registered because they are unable to pay registration fees upfront.

Spokesperson Elijah Mlanga said that this practice was unlawful for schools to deny pupils placement in school if their parents could not afford to pay school fees upfront. He advises schools to refrain from this particular activity as it generates unnecessary tension between parents and schools, and creates a lot of pressure to parents without the finance. Parents are urged to report these unlawful practices to the nearest district or provincial education department office.

Public schools are set to reopen next week after the start of the new school year was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
