HSEB revokes four +2 schools’ licence
Jul 12, 2014-
The Higher Secondary Education Board (HSEB) has scrapped the licence of four private higher secondary schools (HSS) for repeatedly flouting the existing legal provisions and code of conduct.
The Board cancelled the operating permission of Gillette HSS, White Gold HSS, Kathmandu Barsa HSS and Kantipur HSS after they violated the rules despite frequent warning from HSEB. Kalimati-based Gillette HSS was asked to stop admissions two years ago after a team led by Rudra Adhikari, coordinator of the HSS, was found leaking the question papers of various subjects of Grade 12. Adhikari along with other teachers were found selling photocopies of the Computer Science and Accounting exams for Rs 25,000 in May 2011. The Board had opted not to scrap the licence then in order to allow the admitted students complete their study.
The Board has also scrapped the licence of Tikune-based Kathmandu Barsa HSS for failing to sort out the differences between two groups of owners. The administrative work at the school was non-functional after the two groups of the shareholders split. It had also failed to furnish the clarification for relocating the school without permission. The monitoring team from the HSEB last week had asked the school’s administration to furnish a written clarification regarding the relocation and ongoing dispute between the two factions.
Kantipur HSS, likewise, has seen severely deteriorating academic environment due to shareholders’ tussle. The White Gold HSS too failed to forge clarification for relocation and failed to maintain the academic environment.
The HSEB has recently announced to take stern action against those who flout their regulations and codes of conduct.
