Abstract: The measure of school fee-abolition which took effect in some regions like the Amhara region had its own impact on different aspects of the teaching learning process. Investigation of this impact was the main purpose of this study. The data for the study which covered the southern part of the Amhara region was mainly obtained by means of document analysis with supplementary information gathered using a questionnaire and interview schemes. The data so gathered from 21 schools from North Shoa, South Wollo and Oromia zones by the direct intervention of the researchertuere later subjected to a x2-test of independence; the analysis revealed that the fee abolition measure has affected enrollment positively, albeit weakly, while its impact on school revenue and school expenditure was significantly adverse. A number of other factors may have contributed to the stated results. Moreover, the study found out that the regional government was entirely unable to live up to its promises in filling the revenue gap created due to the abolition . That may not be expected given the current unprecedented budget pressure and fiscal constraint, but one may not stop wondering why the fee-abolition measure was taken)to begin with.in such a state of budget starvation. In the final analysis, the study recommended that registration fees be reinstated so that the staggering teaching learning process straightens up and that money-starved schools become able to make ends meet with as little further "sacrifices" as possible.
