The normal fees for the three public examinations in secondary schools have all been abolished. The funding of education at the primary and secondary levels represents a more active partnership among the government, NGOs, and local communities. A formula for government funding of aided schools, based on school rolls, is being used at present. The government provides grants to assist in the construction and repair costs of facilities. The ministry meets the cost of teachers’ salaries according to a formula in all registered schools, with exception in the case of a few schools.
Under a special election, a donor can contribute up to five times the annual gift tax exclusion amount ($75,000 in 2019) and deem the gift to be spread equally over five years to avoid gift tax. Certain plans may impose limits on annual contributions, and all plans limit the total lifetime contribution, typically to the projected cost of five years of tuition at the most expensive, public, in-state college. Private College 529 Plan is established and maintained by Tuition Plan Consortium, LLC . Intuition College Savings Solutions, LLC is the Plan Administrator.
One additional point to consider is that learning from a distance may also mean a considerable saving on accommodation and travel costs. This is especially true if your chosen university’s campus is located in a high-profile, high-cost city such as London, Paris or New York, where the cost of living is a major extra expense. At the same time, remember that you’ll still need to allow for some additional costs on top of tuition, such as for purchasing course materials, resources and textbooks. If your distance program is accredited by a well-known university, your degree should be viewed just as a campus-based qualification would be. Be wary, however, of the thousands of distance/online courses on offer; not all are accredited, meaning there is room in the market for scammers creating bogus programs to try and get you to part with your hard-earned cash.

James Landry of the De Novo Agency and Thomas A. Baker III of the University of Georgia also propose a new model for payments to college athletes for their name, image, and likeness. In an article in the NYU Journal of Intellectual Property and Entertainment Law, they conclude that “no reason in law or common sense” justifies the current NCAA ban on these payments. If the NCAA changes its athlete compensation rules and permits athletes to hire agents, Landry and Baker recommend that the organization also create an “agency certification process” to protect athletes from untrustworthy sports agents. Landry and Baker also suggest adopting academic eligibility criteria as a condition of payments, which would prevent both athletes and universities from profiting if athletes’ grades fall below a certain level. Until Congress acts, and especially if the Supreme Court rules for student athletes, this is perhaps the best option for forcing change. Moreover, a court ruling for the NCAA will only increase the likelihood of federal legislation that will spawn litigation.
