Increasing Fees Next Term Is Inevitable – Headteachers

 A number of headteachers have spoken out saying parents should prepare for an increment in fees next term. Hajjat Zaujja Ndifuna, a head teacher of Mbogo High School, said increasing school fees for next term is inevitable.

“The option of increasing school fees next term is inevitable. The economic crisis is biting all sectors in the country, including the education sector.”

“We predicted early in the term that we couldn’t sail through. What option do you have if you can’t proceed? With all the economic challenges, parents aren’t able to fulfill school fees requirements. Things have changed,” she added.

However, Dr. Denis Mugimba, a Ministry Of Education Official said they are looking into other options besides increasing school fees.

“As the Ministry of Education, we are listening to the schools. The good thing is that the term is almost coming to an end. We shall be able to provide a solution as next term begins, but the idea of fees increment isn’t the best.”

Dr. Denis said the situation at hand should not be blamed on anyone because it is circumstantial.

Some headteachers admit that the situation is really hard

“We need to be grateful that we are coming to the end of term two. Parents need to have an appreciation of the situation we are in. It’s not a creation of the government or the institutions of learning.”

Meanwhile, some schools due to the financial constraints have decided to close before the official date, 12th August 2022. Apparently, there was no more food to feed the students with given most of them had not even paid fees.
