  May 24, 2023 By: INSEC

The Malika Medium School, Mahabu, Rural Municipality-3, halted its school activities due to the dispute over the appointment of the principal.

Hari Prasad Sharma and eight other tutors disrupted the school activities, since May 14, 2023, over the dispute over Sharma not being appointed.

According to written information in the education, youth, and sports branch of the Rural Municipality, the school management committee decided to appoint Man Bahadur Budha,(temporary teacher on quota) as the principal on January 28, 2023.

As per Man Bahadur Budha, the committee gave him this responsibility because he is a tutor in a high school.

Sharma claims that since his position in the school is permanent, there is an ongoing practice of appointing permanent teachers as principle. Therefore, he should be given an opportunity.

Manjukumari Sharma Pandey, Chairperson of Mahabu Rural Municipality and the Village Education Committee reported that this disagreement regarding the selection of the school principal has been an ongoing issue. She also ensured that the rural municipality would act soon to address it.
