Enugu Assembly Warns Private School Owners From Exploiting Parents – VOICE OF THE EAST


The Enugu
State House of Assembly has made it clear that it will not take any
exploitation of parents and caregivers by school proprietors by way of unnecessary
charges as the state reopened primary and secondary schools today.

This was
made known by the chairman of the house of assembly committee on Education, Science
and technology, James Akadu who said exploitations of such nature would compound
economic challenges for parents.

The chairman made an appeal to school authorities to desist
from unnecessary charges disguised as levies because of the economic hardship
occasioned by coronavirus pandemic.  He
said “The House of Assembly will discipline any school that flouts COVID-19
protocols and disciplinary actions would be visited on violators irrespective
of whose ox is gored.”

He commended the state Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s efforts
and for taking the decision to reopen schools in the state for the sake of the
children, noting that it was a demonstration of commitment and responsiveness
on the part of the government.  He made
the announcement that members of the committee would be taking on a task of
monitoring schools across the three senatorial districts to ensure compliance
by schools.
