Kathmandu, March 5.
Ministry of Education has started discussions on managing resource persons and teachers who are on deputation..
According to Spokesperson at the Ministry of Education Hari Lamsal, the ministry never directed deputation of teachers to schools outside their local levels and the ministry has already instructed the concerned district education offices to recall teachers on deputation and place them in their original posts. “But we are still discussing the management of resource persons,” said Lamsal..
Earlier, the Ministry of Federal Affairs and Local Development had written a letter to the Ministry of Education, requesting it to give directives to district education offices to ensure the presence of all teachers and supporting staff to continue their day-to-day work in the concerned schools within 15 days..
“We haven't taken any decision on recalling resource persons yet. After appointment of the new education minister we will decide how to manage resource persons,” said Lamsal. There are a total of 1,056 resource persons throughout the country while more than 2,000 teachers are on deputation. The Local Government Operation Act 2017 and Schedule-8 of the constitution has vested the powers of managing basic and secondary level education with the local levels.
