According to BusinessTech, despite calls from education experts for private school fees to remain the same or have ‘controlled increases’ in 2021, the cost of private education in South Africa continues to climb.

Anthea Cereseto, national chief executive of the Governing Body Foundation, spoke to BusinessTech and said the federation did not advise schools not to increase fees, but to ‘limit it as far as possible’.

We would consider it somewhat reckless if an ordinary public school took no notice of the economic position of families. We are really emphasising cutbacks and delaying the implementation of proposed projects.
