Kathmandu, 7 Nov 2014: Capital-based community schools remained closed today at the call of the Temporary Teachers Struggle Committee, citing the non-implementation of past agreements.

The Committee accused the police administration of abusing teachers who were on a strike at Shantibatika, Ratnapark to press the government to address its demands.  There are around 800 community schools in the capital.  However, some schools, which were not aware of the committee’s move, have continued regular activities.

Committee chair Nirendra Kunwar said the decision to close schools is to mount pressure on bodies concerned to address their voices.

The government and Committee many times signed agreements on taking temporary teachers to the permanent process through internal competition and offering a respectful retirement package with facilities to those failing to go through the competition.
