Kathmandu, November 24
Higher Secondary Schools Association Nepal has demanded revision of the proposed Education Regulations-2073, saying the draft was incomplete.
HISSAN said the regulations presented by the Ministry of Education, which is currently under consideration at the Social Welfare Committee of the Parliament, had some weaknesses.
Organising a press conference yesterday, HISSAN put forth a 22-point demand. Among other things, it has demanded separate regulations for private and community schools.
HISSAN has also demanded that Grade XI and XII be placed in the higher education category. Conduct of Grade XI examinations by the National Examination Board, and representation of HISSAN in concerned committees and sub-committees related to education are the other demands of HISSAN.
On the occasion, HISSAN Chairman Ramesh Silwal warned of launching protests, saying the regulations was brought with the aim of phasing out Plus Two education. He urged the government to find out a solution by holding discussion with them in this regard.
