An investigation committee led by administrative officer of Kailali District Administration Office Kamal Singh Mahara was recently formed to monitor illegally operating private schools, tuition centres and Montessori schools in the district.

Some schools in the district are reportedly running without registering with the concerned authority. “The illegal school operators will be booked,” said Chief District Officer Mohan Bahadur Chapagain. He said his office had begun the process of banning the illegally operated schools and tuition centres in the district.

The investigative committee comprises school Inspector Pratap Singh Dhami of District Education Office, Chairman of Private and Boarding Schools’ Organisation Nepal Kailali, Aarasi Yadav, Chairman of Nepal Students Union, Kailali, Binaya Lama and representatives of District Development Committee, Kailali.

“As per the decision of the investigation committee, we have made the names of illegally operated schools public in the newspapers,” Dhami informed. Dhami, who is also a member of the committee, added that the schools would be shut if they failed to register soon. CDO Chapagain said the committee was given the deadline of February 27 to submit its primary report. He said the committee would also monitor illegally operating coaching centres, tuition centres and child care centres in the district. “Action will be taken against such institutions,” he added.

According to statistics of Kailali District Education Office, the district has as many as 308 private schools and 82 among them are operating without registration. As many as 18 schools were shut in the beginning of this year’s academic session after they were found to be illegal. Dhami said action would not be taken against schools that are in the process of being registered. He informed that the application for registration was open.
