Parents at Mountain View school complain about rising fees amid tough economic times –
Parents from Mountain View School have expressed their concerns about the institution’s decision to increase tuition fees in a difficult economic context.
A source close to Kahawa Tungu called the move an inconvenience, adding that parents have only had one month to research the increase in tuition fees despite the Covid-19 pandemic which has wreaked havoc on businesses and jobs.
In addition, the increase would only affect PP2 in grade 4, with other students using normal 844 being considered favored with lower margins.

Thus, according to the parents, the increase in tuition fees at the establishment is deemed unfair given the current difficult economic situation and the disrupted school calendar due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“This letter arrives at some point to inform you of the next tuition increase which will be reflected on your bill for the new school year (July 2021-March 2022). It is our duty and dedication to provide quality and holistic learning services. Our school has followed a program of continuous improvement in all departments and this comes at a cost. The school board is always committed to staying within our standards and appreciates your partnership in supporting an environment that produces remarkable academic results as well as a character specific to each child ”, one reads in part in the opinion.

In the notice sent to parents, the institution cited the need to train and equip staff to meet Radio-Canada requirements and the acquisition of appropriate infrastructure as the reason for the increase in fees.
“The demand for quality service delivery has put a lot of pressure on the school’s finances. This was compounded by the need to train and equip staff and comply with Radio-Canada requirements. A better equipped and remunerated workforce, sustainable systems and structures, and the right infrastructure translate into better results and incremental results, ”adds the opinion.
