Public School On The Spot For Demanding Ksh. 8,000 School Fee From Parents
A public school in Nairobi’s Shauri Moyo area is on the spot for demanding Ksh. 8,000 from parents who want to admit their children in the school.
This is despite the government allocating Ksh.55.4 Billion shillings for Free Primary education.
Irene Karunda says Head teacher of Heshima Primary School says she was sent back home with her two children for failing to produce the Ksh. 8,000 that the principal demanded.
Karunda says that the head teacher blatantly told her that he could not admit her two children if she did not have the money.
She says that she was forced to take her children to the next public school where they were admitted for free.
According to Karunda, the Principal at Heshima Primary School not only demanded money from her but also told her to buy school uniforms at a specific shop that she suspects belongs to the head teacher.
