The Plateau Chapter of the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS), has decried the huge charges for Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE), by some school owners in the state.
The association described the increase by school owners in the West African Senior Certificate Examination(WASSCE) and the Senior Secondary Certificate Examination(SSCE) fees as outrageous and a burden to many parents.
Chairman of the association in the state, Mr Solomon Musa, raised the concern in an interview with newsmen on Saturday in Jos.
He, however, said that such charges was not an excuse for outrageous increment, and suggested that schools should add about 2,000 naira to the official 18,000 naira fee.
Musa urged parents to interrogate such developments as silence meant consent and sympathised with parents who were struggling in such situation, saying many parents have called him to raise such concerns.
He reiterated the association’s position against exam malpractices in private schools, where it reports such cases to Ministry of Education to withdraw licence of defaulters.
