KATHMANDU, Sept 20: Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) has made it clear that it will take action in response to school closures linked to teachers' protests.

Government school teachers, expressing their dissatisfaction with the proposed School Education Bill, have declared their intention to close schools starting from Thursday. However, KMC has stated that such school closures are unacceptable.

Nabin Manandhar, spokesperson for KMC, emphasized that KMC also has dissatisfaction about the School Education Act. He stated, “While we have differing views on the law, closing schools is not an acceptable means of expressing disagreement. Such actions only disrupt children's education.”

KMC has decided that if schools are closed, action will be taken against principals and teachers who do not attend school.

“We will closely monitor schools tomorrow,” said KMC Spokesperson Manandhar, “If schools are closed, causing a disruption to children's education, appropriate action will be taken.”
