|Soludo Announces Free Education In Anambra From Nursery To JSS by living2013(m): 11:24am On Sep 22|
Anambra State Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo declared free and compulsory education from Nursery school to Junior Secondary School (JSS 3) in public schools in the state.
On Thursday, Sept. 21, he made this known while visiting Premier Primary School in Obosi, Idemili North Council Area.
He went on to say that children of school age would no longer be denied access to high-quality education, and that education from nursery to JSS would be free and mandatory in the state.
The free and compulsory education program includes not just tuition fees, but also various dues and levies that can amount to thousands of Naira per term for students.
According to him, the new policy is written in the constitution, which states that the state shall provide free basic education wherever possible.
The governor also announced that tuition prices for senior secondary school students (SSS 1 – 3) had been cut from 8,000 to 12,000 Naira per term, depending on the school, to a flat amount of 5,000 Naira for all, with no further tax, levy, or dues attached. He explained that the charge would be collected by the schools and not paid to the government.
