Teachers continue agitation, nationwide schools affected

KATHMANDU: The effect of the indefinite educational strike called once again from Sunday by the Nepal Teachers Union and Nepal Educational Republic Forum, has been countrywide.

They have started the strike saying their talks with the Ministry of Education were not positive.

The district level examinations of class 8 beginning today and all teaching learning activities in the schools will be affected from the strike.

Although the teachers had committed not to agitate by obstructing teaching and in regard to school as zone of peace, the parents and stakeholders are worried as harsh programmes of bandh are made public time and again.

Although the government had said the problems of the temporary teachers will be incorporated in the amendment of the education act, the talks were failed in the last hour.

Joint meeting of the teachers’ organisations on Saturday decided for strike from today after the talks were not positive, said Chairman of the Nepal National Teachers Union Dil Bahadur Joshi.

Meanwhile, preparations are also being made for talks today in the presence of political leadership and the parliament for amendment of the education act.
