The fad by many parents and guardians to send their children and wards to expensive schools believing that the ‘big’ names of the schools and the huge amounts paid in school fees determine the academic fortunes of their children or wards is the focus of the new episode of Professor Johnbull.
But is that really true? Have products of less expensive schools not done better in competitive examinations than products of expensive schools? Should parents leave the training of their children entirely to the teachers because the school fees are high? Should the role of parents stop at just paying heavily for the child’s education?
The above issues and many more are the thrust of the new episode of the sitcom, Professor Johnbull, sponsored by foremost telecommunications company, Globacom. Entitled Expensive Schools, the new episode presents to viewers the agonies most couples go through to send their children to expensive schools in a bid to catch up with their neighbours and friends who are well to do and can afford to pay such high school fees.
