The Commissioner for Education, Prof Ngozi Chuma-Udeh has warned parents not to compromise the quality of their children education because of money.
Chuma-Udeh gave the advice while addressing some parents of Nkisi Regent Schools Fegge Onitsha, who were in her office to protest the increment of fees by the management of the school.
She said parents had no justification to qerry a private school management on strategy adopted to maintain quality and remain afloat in the present economic realities.
The Commissioner maintained that the Ministry would only intervene when standard is compromised, or when a child’s welfare is trampled upon.
“Governor Chukwuma Soludo has made choice easier for parents by declaring free education in public schools in Anambra State,” she added.
She advised them to either pay what the school demanded, take their children to a private school that charges less or the public school which had been made free, instead of making trouble.
The Commissioner insisted that the Ministry would not decide for any private business man what to charge for his/her goods or services.
