  1. I think the whole school fee program should be investigated. What is being done with those fees that parents pay to the schools, the principals should be held accountable.

  2. The parents should be issued vouchers because a lot of them spend the money on nails, clothes and hair

  3. Bravo this helps alot
    The current Government should continue this program
