Nigerian Parents Lament, Threaten To Withdraw Kids As Schools Hike Fees

Many private primary and secondary schools across the states have increased their fees ahead of the new academic year.

However, parents whose wards attend private schools are worried, with some of them contemplating relocating them to public schools.

Many of the parents said they have been notified of increments in school fees, feeding, transportation and cost of uniforms.

While some parents said that it has become a norm for most private schools to increase fees at the beginning of every session, some schools said the increase was with the consent of stakeholders who also acknowledged the prevailing economic situation occasioned by rising inflation and deteriorating value of the naira.

Findings revealed that some schools have increased their fees by between 30 and 50 per cent.

Many parents in Abuja, Kano, Lagos, Port Harcourt, and other states lamented the increase in school fees of their children in private schools. 

Some of them said if public schools were functioning well, they would have no reason to take their children to private schools.
