President of Jamaica Association of Principals of Secondary Schools, David Wilson, says he too does not support plans by the government to remove auxiliary fees at secondary schools.

Wilson says the association is yet to discuss the matter.

However, he says he believes that schools and the social development of students will be negatively affected if auxiliary fees are removed.

He says the fees which schools receive currently from the education ministry and contributions from parents are already inadequate to cover all their expenses.

Wilson says he believes that parents should continue to contribute financially to their children’s education.
