Kathmandu, November 7
Kathmandu Metropolitan City has decided not to give approval to new private schools in the city for now. The city government says it will rather make existing schools improve their management to deliver quality educations.
The KMC’s Education Section chief Moti Bhattarai says the investors cannot establish new schools but they can upgrade the existing ones after the decision. According to him, an increase in the number of schools cannot ensure quality education, but improved management can.
Currently, there are 91 government and 663 private schools are operating in the city.
After the promulgation of the 2015 constitution, local governments have been authorised to regulate schools in their jurisdiction.
