All 13 private secondary schools which have not been paid their subventions will receive them before the end of this week.

Education Minister Anthony Garcia gave this assurance yesterday at a press conference at the Education Towers on St Vincent Street, Port of Spain, held to address the issue of non-payment of fees to private secondary schools.

The move to pay the outstanding subventions, including money for salaries and student fees, also comes on the heels of several teachers not showing up for classes at Bishop's Centenary College yesterday as a result of which classes were dismissed.
