The SUBEB chief said: “No doubt, SBMCs, PTAs can contribute to the development of their local schools, but it must not in any way affect the education of pupils.

“No child should be discriminated against in the state education sector.”

According to him, some parents reported to the board that the school head teachers denied their children access to the examination hall for failing to pay the N100 development levy charged by the school’s management and SBMC, through a popular radio station in Ibadan.

“For denying the pupils access to examination hall, queries have been issued to head teachers of the affected schools,” he added.
