The information is expressed in Presidential Order 129/20, stating that the amount is still to be defined.
The new measure is justified by the fact that the "school revenues are part of an important alternative financing portion for public secondary education institutions", stressed these legal intrument.
The Government believes that the collection of fees and emoluments will increase the financial resources, necessary for the functioning of the schools in this teaching subsystem.
The Presidential Order states the collection must be secured by the Ministries of Education and Finance, but the source did not reveal when the services would start being implemented.
It is up to the two Ministerial Departments (Education and Finance) to approving and defining these values.
A source close to Education Ministry, requiring anonymity, told Angop that proposals are being analysed with the Ministry of Finance to determine the values ??of fees and emoluments to be charged, in exchange for the services provided by secondary education institutions.
In September of 2019, the Angolan authorities decided to suspend the collection of fees in public educational institutions in Angola, due to the "non-existence" of a legal diploma for that purpose.
