Are Schools Allowed To Withhold Children's School Reports?
As the school year comes to an end, many parents are not in the financial position to be able to pay for their children's school fees. Which has made many parents wonder if their children's school reports would be withheld if payments are not made in full.
The current pandemic has left many South Africans unemployed and as the school year comes to an end, many parents are not in the financial position to be able to pay for their children's school fees.
Which has made many parents wonder if their children's school reports would be withheld if payments are not made in full by the end of the academic year.
An interview was done between Sue Larkan, from the Tabansi organisation, and John Perlman, from the radio station 702, around this topic of schools withholding school reports.
According to Larkan, it is illegal for all South African schools, both private and public schools, to withhold a report, Grade 12 certificate or transfer card for any reason.
In some cases, parents took the school to court for such behaviour, however it does not have to come to that.
Instead, the parents or legal guardians and the school could find alternative forms of payment, such as paying small portions towards the school fees each month.
South Africa has a large percentage of unemployed youth. However, the Department of Higher Education and Training contracted the Human Sciences Research Council to research and establish a mechanism to support skills planning and training of students in preparation for the labour market.
First Year registrations for the 2021 academic year are open at Walter Sisulu University. They are excited to welcome the First Year students to the university.
