More subsidies for lower-income students in independent schools

TODAY paper, 23 Oct 2013

The Independent School Bursary (ISB), which currently covers only school fees, will be expanded to cover miscellaneous fees, which include cost of teaching and printing materials for students in the schools.

Independent schools charge fees ranging from S$250 to S$450 a month, excluding miscellaneous fees which range from S$35 to S$100 a month. A check with all eight independent schools found that none are planning to raise fees for Singaporeans, although fees are going up for permanent residents and international students at some schools.
