Reduce Third Term Schooling Fees
Dear Member of EMC Administration,
Allow us to first start by thanking you and your team for what is sure to be tremendous effort trying to find alternate solutions to maintain education given the circumstances. We can attest that your teachers and support team are trying their absolute best to try and get our children engaged in virtual classes, and making themselves always available to support. Now with the probability that virtual classes will need to continue till end of year we ask you to at least acknowledge that what you are now offering is not the schooling that we agreed to pay for and therefore the fees should be reconsidered. As we are sure you can relate, parents are now working as full-time teachers, counsellors, in addition to trying to maintain their extremely demanding work schedules at times when all businesses are struggling, income is at risk, and future employment or business survival has never been more volatile.The entire world economy is struggling, and businesses are expected to stand by their communities. We are struggling to comprehend why the for-profit private schools expect their business to remain undeterred and their revenues untouched when the entire world economy is facing an unprecedented slump. We understand you need to pay your teachers, but keeping full third term schooling fees just seems wrong when you’re not running classes in your facility and our kids are at home with us.
As proud members of the EMC community, we urge you to reconsider where your organization stands during these times, and consider what you want the school to be remembered for when life returns to whatever new norm.
Thank you for your leadership and support and wish you the best of luck in navigating these unprecedented times.
