International Schools Can Only Raise Fees Up To 30%
International schools wanting to raise their fees must comply with the guidelines set by the Education Ministry.
The ministry cited Education Regulations (Registration of Educational Institutions) 1997, where any private educational institution wanting to change its fee structure must get approval from the Chief Registrar of Education Institutions and Teachers.
Besides the cap on how high international schools could raise their fees, the ministry also said schools had to justify the hike.
The ministry issued the reminder after receiving complaints from parents who said international schools had raised their fees up to 50%.
