A FORM Seven student of Navosa Central College in Keyasi said government should allow schools and communities to engage in fundraising bazaars to meet the extra cost of education in the country.
Adi Vuri in her submission to the Constitution Commission said she understood that government would not be able to provide free education in totality, therefore, students and the community should engage in these activities taking into account the increase in school levies and other fees. This, she said, would take away the burden from the parents.
Another student Alipate Dakevu told the commission that corporal punishment should be reintroduced but with a set guideline. He said teachers should be allowed to instil a certain degree of fear in children so they can behave. He submitted that Fiji should be declared a Christian state.
