#Myanmar #Burma#President #asks #parliament to #reconsider #National #Education #Law

January 21, 2015

21.january President Thein Sein sent a message to the parliament on January 20 requesting that parliament reconsider the National Education Law following demands from students and teachers to reduce centralization of the Myanmar education system and permit the establishment of organisations.
The Union parliament approved the National Education Law on September 30, 2014. Forty-six per cent of the law’s provisions were drawn by the parliament, and remaining 54 per cent were drawn by the Ministry of Education.
In his message to parliament, the president mentioned that there are stakeholders who demand the reduction of centralisation, the elimination of the National Educational Commission, the freedom to form students and teacher associations and the promotion of ethnic minority literature in schools.
The president also said that since the Ministry of Education has not been able to fulfil the demands of these stakeholders and because the law is still not enforced in practice, the legislation should consider amending it. Is this correct?
