On report, "Three governors quit ESF board over soaring school fees as subsidy is axed", May 21:
HK-Explorer - I believe every parent is aware that with the cutting of the government subsidy fees will go up. Even with the subsidy fees were going up. I don't agree with a non-refundable building levy though. Just include all money required in the monthly fees, which keeps parents' options open to change schools if they wish.
dynamco - Every child born in Hong Kong should receive the same yearly subsidy no matter where they use it.
Dao-Phooy - I sympathise with parents who have young children - navigating the system and trying to get one's child into school is so stressful.
