Government to form committees to find solutions for rising school tuition
Is the government is looking to regulate tuition fees at int’l schools, again? Prime Minister Sherif Ismail announced the formation of a committee which will look into how international and private schools set tuition fees, according to a cabinet statement. The move comes in response to complaints of a sharp rise in private school tuition fees. The guidelines governing private and international schools will need to be restructured to ensure that schools comply with Education Ministry regulations, Ismail said. We don’t expect these statements to be welcomed by administrators of international schools, who have been trying to get out of the yolk of the Education Ministry and want to be regulated by the Investment Ministry after the Education Ministry had place International School of Choueifat and the American International School of Cairo under administrative and financial control last year.
