KATHMANDU: The Federation of Community School Management Committees (FCSMC) has demanded that the responsibility of improving the quality of community schools not be given to the private institutions.

The provision to give the private schools the responsibility of improving the community schools is against the norms and values of the Constitution.

Issuing a statement, the Federation has demanded that the provision in point no. 166 of the budget estimates for Fiscal Year 2020/21 be removed, and budget allocated to ensure free and compulsory education to all.

The provision states that all private/institutional schools shall be given the responsibility of improving the quality of at least one community school in the country.

The statement issued jointly by Federation chair Krishna Thapa and General Secretary Gunaraj Moktan has also called for increase in facilities of teachers and staffers of the child development centres in the budget to be developed by the State and local governments.

It has also demanded that the internal assessment carried out by schools and colleges be recognized for the students of Grade 10 and Grade 11 and begin teaching and learning activities in community schools by adopting alternative measures.
