The students were protesting the decision of the school’s Parent Teacher Association to tax each parent an amount of L$200 monthly to cover the living expenses of six teachers at the school who are not yet on the government payroll.

The students argued that the government must assume responsibility for the payment of its employees, including teachers in public schools.
