My friend Deo told me today that the newly elected President, John Magufuli has announced that tuition fees for government schools will be eliminated for students up to Form IV level beginning in January 2016.

Previously only elementary school up to standard 7 was free from tuition.  That’s 4 years of high school education that will now be available to all Tanzanian children.  Only A levels (Form V and VI) will have to pay tuition.  This means that Do Science can concentrate on supporting student who plan to continue on to University.

There is reference to the new plan in this article.
