He also noted that, quite a number of school heads are aware of this exercise, and have given their backing, although they cannot support it financially.

“As at now, you know they [head teachers] are not allowed to take anything from any student, because previously you can see that some of the Headmasters, in collaboration with the PTA [Parent Teacher Associations] normally charge some token from the students, now it is not happening anymore,” he said.
