Educational institute killing students with unreasonable fees

Aggrieved students of the Jackson College of Education calling on government and the appropriate stakeholders to help them resolve what they describe as unreasonable charges in their institution nationwide.

Students of the school have recently been hit with some directives they claim are unreasonable to the student body with regards payments of fees.

Speaking to, the Student Representative Council (SRC) president of the Accra campus of the Institution, Joyce Asare, said management recently came up with a directive which did not favor the finances and academics of the students.

According to her, students were initially allowed to sit for their examinations if they paid 60% of their fees, but their results would be withheld until they paid the rest of the fees to access their results as per their student’s handbook.

Joyce revealed that the terrain had changed as students who were not able to make 100% payment of their fees before November 2018 were not allowed to sit for the examination at all.

She added that students who were allowed to write on the blind side of management, had their papers unmarked, as a result of not paying the fees in full.

The SRC president said management had however come up with a supplementary examination for students to re-take the exams at GHC 600 for five papers.

Meanwhile the SRC has tabled their concerns to the management of the institution but the responses the management gave them was not encouraging, as the management still stood its grounds to going strictly by its directive.

Students are however complaining about the fees as they claimed they would find it hard to pay for the supplementary exams which started from February 2 to 9, 2019.

The SRC is however calling on educational stakeholders to come to their aid as the money for their supplementary examinations was too much and not necessary.
