Can a widow get financial aid for schooling?
Applied for financial aid with the school but it is a private institute and I would like to know if it is part of the act that widow's can get 50% off.
Good day. This is an info request to assist you better. Please continue on this thread.Are you referring to the Schools Act?
yes for both private and public?
1. There is nothing in any act that says that a widow must get 50% off for the School Fees of her child, unfortunately. 2. The Schools Act does make provision for a parent to apply to the school to pay a reduced school fee or even no school fee at all if the parent can show that they cannot afford the School Fee. This, however, only operate at Public Schools and there is no such legislative system in operation in Private Schools. Where Private Schools are concerned, that will be up to the school to grant such a discount, but it cannot be enforced on them as it can be in public schools.3. I know that this is probably not the news you wanted, however, it is how the law operates.
