EXPOSED: Shocking Exploitation Of Parents At Caleb British International School by Spritersz: 3:49am On Aug 31, 2019
There seem to be an increasing spate of exploitative tendencies by school proprietors in Nigeria, especially with the recent claims of exploitation against CALEB BRITISH INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, LAGOS, who allegedly exploited and extorted outrageous sums of money from parents whose wards are students of the school on the pretext that their wards committed acts of wanton vandalism resulting in the destruction of school properties such as wardrobes, beds, doors in their hostel.

The school authorities as claimed waited until the day of graduation party to serve such claims of vandalism to the parents without prior notification to the parents that their wards had committed the purported acts and without giving fair hearing to the accused students to prove their innocence or even produce tangible evidence to establish the student’s complicity in the act, instead they came up with outrageous bills which they asked the parents to pay immediately as renovation costs to enable their wards to graduate while they forced students to write implicating statement.


However, one of the affected parents, Mrs Onwubiko whose son was affected lamented that the school has hotel care takers and has a tradition of checking out students from hotels on completion of their studies and that her son, Master Irukka Onwukbiko was checked out of the school hostel without any reports or claims of implication in any damage and wondered how few days later, she was now asked to pay for damages before he could graduate.


According to her, since her son was not the only student affected, the parents of all the students involved in the said vandalism should be called for a meeting together with their children to determine who was responsible for the purported damage. While this was not done, she also wondered why an astronomical sum of N1,300,000 should be paid by the students for a mere renovation of a knocked, wardrobe and door, even if the damage was actually committed by their wards.
