Taiz Sheiks & Dignitaries Request the  Ruling Out of Universities Fees [Archives:1999/33/Local News]

August 16 1999

In an appeal presented by Taiz sheiks and dignitaries to the government, they requested the rethinking of the decision of increasing university tuitions fees for the 99-2000 academic year. This happened after the amendment made by the Cabinet which states that tuitions for scientific faculties will be 5000, and those for humanity faculties will be 3500. However, students, as well as normal citizens were not pleased with this increase which will not facilitate the educational process in Yemen. On the contrary, it will deprive the people from education which is supposed to be free as it is preserved by the constitution of Yemen.
