The Nepali Congress is actively engaged in discussions regarding Education Bill 2080, which aims to amend and unify school education laws. This initiative comes in response to widespread protests by teachers and stakeholders from across the nation against the provisions of the government’s bill, which was presented in parliament.
Nepali Congress Decision:
The NC has decided to hold the discussion program after teachers and other stakeholders from all over the country protested against the provisions of the bill registered by the government in the parliament. The party wants to make the education bill as universally acceptable as possible and will participate in the discussion by registering amendment proposals accordingly.
Chairman Sher Bahadur Deuba along with party officials, members of the House of Representatives, and the National Assembly will participate in the discussion. Representatives from the Nepal Teachers Federation, Nepal Teachers Association, Relief Teachers Committee, Child Development Teachers Committee, Pabson, N Pabson, Higher Education and Secondary School Association, Community School Management Committee Federation, Technical Teachers Association, and Permanent Teacher Rights Forum will also be present.
