Kathmandu Metropolitan City has urged teachers not to disrupt classes while advocating for their rights. The local government of the federal capital has urged teachers of the schools within the locality not to close schools to ensure student's right to education.
At the call of the Nepal Teachers' Federation, teachers from various schools in the country gathered in the federal capital, protesting against the Federal Education Bill that was presented in the parliament recently.
Metropolis spokesperson Nabin Manandhar said teachers are urged to resume classes by tomorrow. "Student's right to education shall not be violated by closing schools," he said.
The local government has learned to have instructed the Education Department to monitor the situation and take action if any schools within the metropolis are found violating the call to resume classes. Before this, the metropolis had warned teachers not to disrupt classes, reminding them of schools as zones of peace.
