Salamun Alaykum
Alhaj Shirazbhai Walji,
President of KSI Jamaat of Dar es Salaam

I hereby wish to bring to your notice the following:

One if my children who has now finished her Nursery Education at Al Muntazir Nursery is now expected to proceed to Primary level in the same school.

On processing the enlrollment, I was shocked to be given a bank pay in slip of TShs:450,000/- T/SHS. FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND. and that I should first pay this at the bank within 12 days just to reserve the seat for the child.

On further enquiry about the fees and other charges, I was bluntly told to pay this amount first and then -ONLY THEN THE FEES AND OTHER CHARGES WILL BE GIVEN!!

AS AN EMPLOYEE, I WOULD HAVE TO KNOW THE EXPENDITURE IN ADVANCE TO BE ABLE TO BUDGET FOR THIS VERY CRUCIAL FACTOR THAT EDUCATION HAS NOW BECOME. MY ONLY SOURCE OF INCOME IS MY SALARY AND I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE SEVERAL LOANS FROM MY EMPLOYER. IF I TAKE A LOAN FOR THE CHILDS SEAT RESERVATION ONLY, IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO GET ANOTHER LOAN FOR ANOTHER YEAR - UNTIL I HAVE CLEARED ALL THE OUTSTANDINGS. IF I TAKE A BLIND LOAN WHICH TURNS OUT TO BE TOO TOO SMALL, MY ABILITY TO PAY FEES AND OTHER CHARGES WILL BE CURTAILED. IF I TAKE A LOAN TOO BIG (THE CHANCES ARE VERY SLIM ON THAT) MY ABILITY TO CLOTH, FEED AND ACCOMODATE MYSELF AND MY FAMILY WOULD BE IMPOSIBLE.

Also, please note that I had already paid T/Shs. 300.000/- THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND SHILINGS JUST A YEAR AGO TI GAIN ADMISSION TO THE NURSERY SECTION OF THE SAME SCHOOL. NOW A YEAR LATER I AM AGAIN FORCED TO PAY T/SHS 450.000/- IN ONE LUMP SUM (AND I AM NOT EVEN BEING TOLD FOR WHAT NOR BEING ALLOWED TO PAY IN INSTALMENTS AS BEFORE).

I WONDER IF THIS IS NORMAL PRACTICE ... AND AM HUMBLY SEEKING YOUR VALUABLE ADVISE ABOUT HOW AN EMPLOYEE CAN EDUCATE THE CHILDREN WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY IN OUR COMMUNITY SCHOOL SYSTEM ??

I WONDER IF THE EDUCATION BOARD LEADERSHIP IS AWARE THAT ISLAM AND MORE SO OUR HOLY IMAMS ALWAYS EMPHASISED ON EDUCATION AND BY USING THE HOLY NAME OF THE IMAM OF OUR TIME A.T.F.S. AS THE NAME OF THE SCHOOL, THE EDUCATION BOARD LEADERSHIP WOULD BE HAPPY TO NOTE THAT THE MAJORITY OF THE HOLY IMAMS MUNTAZIR ARE SHUNNING THE SCHOOL AND STUDYING IN OTHER SCHOOLS ??

WOULD YOU AS A CUSTODIAN AND REPRESENTATIVE OF THE HOLY IMAM BE HAPPY WITH THIS ???

Please respond to this promptly as I have limited time to make a decision. This is due to the 12 day deadline IMPOSED BY THE ADMISSION PROCESS SET BY OUR ESTEEMED SCHOOL LEADERSHIP.

Ahsant in advance.

(salam)

Can anyone confirm or disprove the above letter as genuine?

Any outcomes.

I wish to pose a question:

Obviously the Al Muntazir schools were created to serve the mission of al Imam. Should we be aiming towards the highest possible quality of knowledge at the lowest possible cost?

Or should we be economically practical and turn education into a cash-cow business like its done elsewhere in the world?

Al-muntazir schools' fees

Postby Insaan » 20 Oct 2016, 12:22

Salaamun alaikum,

My son has just completed grade 2 and now has received the fees structure of grade 3 being 2,480,000 - clearly stating that the price increase is due to the inflation rate of 10 -15%

Although with 2 children both studying at Al Muntazir, despite the rebate we have to cater for school books - exercise and text, school uniform including sports and PE Emblem, School bus transport.

Inflation rates have struck all over the world that hasn't made an increase in our salary's irrespective of the global financial crisis.

Rebate will lead to an installment of 375,000 per child which adds to 750,000 per month.
Salary drawn if would be 1,000,000 - take home after installment would be 250,000
how do we manage household expenses.

Request the Jamaat and Community elders to give a considerable thought to our situation.

We fail to upgrade ourselves as our resources are totally utilized for our off springs.
