The National Council of the Teachers Association of Cameroon, TAC, has warned against any increase in registration fees for the General Certificate of Education exams.
Meeting in Bamenda on April 26,the TAC Council, issued a press release signed by its National President, Valentine Taweh Nfon, warning the authorities of the GCE Board not to increase GCE registration fees. The release states that, after broad-based consultations with parents and teachers: “TAC saw the move to increase the subject registration dues for GCE examinations to be too hasty and untimely and resolved that a lot of consultation, sensitisation and education be carried out before any such move is attempted.”
TAC insists that Government should assume its full responsibility of sponsoring education, especially the sensitive and delicate processes of evaluation and certification.
TAC wonders why wages, allowances, daily running and examination production and other costs remain “a mystery to all other stakeholders, except the GCE Board authorities”.
