According to Sourani, fees will increase by 5 percent, a figure approved by Ministry of Education. The extra revenues will be used to modernize the bus network, maintain the infrastructure and general state of schools, add new classes, increase salaries of school employees, and make other improvements.

Defending the increase, Sourani said: “We are not enthusiastic about raising fees, but the economic situation forced school owners to do it,  despite the parents’ inability to bear the additional cost.”
