Zerikat explained that the ministry's approval of the fee increase is based on the system of establishment and licensing of private educational institutions, which includes instructions for paying tuition fees according to specific conditions.

She also pointed out that the ministry relies on several justifications when approving any fee increase for a private school or kindergarten.

These include a clear record free of any penalty, complaint, or abuse, the number of exemptions, grants, and discounts offered to students, the number of disabled students accepted and the services provided to them, as well as the health care provided to all students and quality standards.
