Kathmandu, April 10

Student unions affiliated to three major political parties have demanded that the Kathmandu Metropolitan City take up the responsibility to regulate schools operating within its jurisdiction.

Leaders of CPN-UML’s ANNFSU, Nepali Congress’ NSU and CPN-Maoist Centre’s ANNISU-R on Tuesday met the City Mayor Bidya Sundar Shakya to handover a memorandum with the demand that the local government set a standard for fees schools can collect from students and guardians.

They also stated that the City should monitor schools and take action against those overcharging students.

The unions reminded Mayor Shakya that the constitution has delegated right to regulate primary and secondary education institutions to local bodies.

In response, Shakya said improving the quality of education at government schools would also be an effective means to regulate the sector.

Chairs of the unions–Nabina Lama, Nain Singh Mahar and Ranjit Tamang respectively–have signed the memorandum.
