Govt reduces school fees for all colleges of education
The Ministry of General Education has revised user fees for colleges of education across the country, to K1, 800 for boarders and K800 for day scholars per term.
General education minister David Mabumba has explained that this is in line with education Act of 2011, which allows his office to provide guidelines on fees for educational institutions and categories of learners.
Mr Mabumba has emphasized that government will continue giving schools grants to cushion the financial gaps that may be encountered as a result of reduced user fees.
Mr Mabumba said this during a media briefing in Lusaka this morning.
