ZLHR Warns School Authorities Against Turning Away Pupils For Nonpayment Of Fees

Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) has admonished school authorities against turning away school children for non-payment of fees. ZLHR said that the practice is unconstitutional and a violation of children’s rights. ZLHR said

Undoubtedly the majority of those who fall victim to this practice are children from disadvantaged families and acquiring education can be the only way out of a life of poverty.

The ministry has in the past categorically denounced exclusion of children for non-payment of school fees. Turning away children from the classroom undermines the principle of the best interest of a child, a standard prescribed and emphasised in the constitution of Zimbabwe, and in human rights instruments that Zimbabwe has voluntarily ratified.
