Challenges awaiting private schools after reopening

Whenever the Federal Government reopens schools for physical classes, some challenges are bound to confront private schools. Here are some of them: 1. Salary and tuition fees: Undoubtedly, public and private economies have been hit by weeks of lockdown and limited productivity. But soon as the schools reopen, teachers and other members of staff would be anticipating their wages as succor for the hard times. On the other hand, private schools too haven’t been making much money, if they have at all through passive virtual classes. Parents and Guardians are also making less money too, meaning school fees may be hard to balance. The proprietors of such institutions may have to source elsewhere for where to pay to their workers. 2. Retrenchment and restructuring: If government schools are reluctant to downsize staff, private counterparts would not hesitate to. Some non-essential staff may be asked to take compulsory leave at first instance until their services can be afforded.
