Investigate rampant corrupt activities in schools

EDITOR — As schools open for the first term of 2016, I have noticed how some learning institutions are fleecing parents of their hard-earned cash by putting up atrocious demands.

An example is that of a school in Hatfield that is demanding you pay $10 for their branded book covers among other things like a rim of bond paper.

Is this above board? Has the ministry responsible sanctioned this money-making venture and where is the minister of Primary and Secondary Education in all this?

In a shop, covers cost much less than $10 and it is difficult for parents to just pay fees and uniforms let alone afford such unethical demands.

To top it off, one of the ladies in the school hall who was clearing students, was very rude and was adamant that no child would be cleared without meeting these demands.

The Primary and Secondary Education minister should investigate this school as matter of urgency.
