Kathmandu, September 13
After a long wait, the government registered the Bill to amend and integrate laws related to education in the House of Representatives on Wednesday.
Following approval from the Council of Ministers, the Bill concerning the effective administration of schools, including the formulation of national standards for their establishment and operations, has been officially registered.
Subsequently, the Bill is available on the website of the Federal Parliament Secretariat.
The Bill aims to establish clear and transparent guidelines for school management. Private investment schools will need local-level approval for both their establishment and the addition of classes. Furthermore, private schools will be permitted to levy fees within the boundaries and subjects specified by the local level. Public schools, on the other hand, will not be allowed to charge fees.
Newly established private schools will operate under the Guthi (Board of Trustees) while existing private schools will not be compelled to do so. The Chairperson of the school management committee will be chosen from among the parents. Additionally, provisions have been made to cater to the needs of school employees.
