What is Black tax? Is taking care of your extended family an unavoidable obligation ? Can you afford to do this ? Do you expect your children to take care of you? Six ‘born free’ students who are about to graduate, and soon to become teachers tell us about the financial pressures they are under from their families and the stress it creates.
