100 private schools applied to operate in Yangon next year

Approximately 100 applications to open private schools in Yangon Regions were submitted in the 2015-2016 academic year, according to the Kyimyintaing Township Basic Education Department in Yangon.

An official from the department said: “There are approximately 100 applications to open the private schools in Yangon next year. We will announce the names of the permitted schools before they open.”

Myanmar’s private school law was passed on December 2, 2011, by the Union Parliament. According to the law, private schools have been allowed to open since the 2012-2013 academic year. There are 160 private schools nationwide. A teacher who wants to work at a private school must apply to register under the private school law.

A person involved in the application process for a private school said: “The list of schools permitted should have announced earlier so that we can arrange student enrollment and registering earlier. Since we don’t know whether the school is permitted or not, we cannot accept the students’ enrollment.”
