The Education Ministry Thursday launched its Back to School initiative in an effort to inspire children to prioritize their education above all else, a UNHCR statement said.Although funding for the initiative has been provided by donors, last year's Back to School initiative still faces a $9.8 million funding gap, while the initiative launched Thursday is $25 million to $35 million short of its budget target, the statement said.The education minister issued a circular Thursday calling on all private schools not to increase tuition fees while the issue was being studied by the ministry.By that time, students would already be registered and a third of the tuition for the academic year 2017-18 would already be paid.
