Stating that the government has not shown any interest in the implementation of their demands, the operators of private educational institutions have announced to stop all teaching and learning activities from Thursday. As a result, learning activities, including online classes, which have been conducted by private schools for the past three months, will be completely shut down.
Rituraj Sapkota, president of National Private and Residential Schools Organization Nepal (NPABSON) and Tika Puri, president of Private and Residential Schools Organization Nepal (PABSON) have issued a joint statement announcing the closure of the classrooms. In a joint statement issued on Wednesday, the two organizations said they were forced to close online classes as the government had not taken any decision on monthly tuition fees and online fees.
Sapkota, chairman of N. Pabson, said the online classes were shut down in protest after the ministry did not focus on solving their problems for three months. “The online class was conducted for three months after the infection of Corona virus 9 Kovid-190. We could not afford it anymore. We were forced to close the class due to non-payment of rent, bank interest and installment,” said Chairman Sapkota.
