Poor pupils chased from school

Editor,
I’m at Bayuni School in Kanyama constituency witnessing unfortunate events. Scores of students have been chased out of class for not paying a contribution that is not part of their school fees. The contribution of K200 is meant to go towards the building of new classroom blocks. My understanding is that this is a government project. Why are these already under privaledged kids being asked to contribute. Some of them are in exam classes. Initially I observed quietly, but became agitated when I witnessed the deputy headmaster verbally abuse them and chase them like dogs. I had to intervene and argue with him to deal with them in a more humane manner.IMG-20150917-00976 IMG-20150917-00978
