Skirts worn by girl students in higher secondary schools (also called +2colleges) in Chitwan district was found to be very short and can possibly have negative impact on the students, a high-level inspection team said.
The inspection team sent by Higher Secondary Education Council from Kathmandu advised the higher secondary schools in Chitwan to discourage their girl students from wearing skimpy skirts and respect the rules of educational institutions. The team made this suggestion after monitoring many higher secondary schools in Chitwan including International College, Balmiki Sikcha Sadan, Orchid Science College, among others.
According to the District Education Office (DEO), the team also asked the concerned school administration to take action against any girl students found wearing their skirt above their knees and even suspend them from schools if they repeat the offence.
The inspection team also found that many ‘+2’ colleges in Chitwan didn’t had fully-equipped laboratories and libraries and that the condition of other school infrastructures like classes, canteens and toilets was very poor.
The DEO said the inspection team also found that the school buildings were housing students beyond their capacity. The colleges were also found of carelessness while conducting internal tests and exams.
The Higher Secondary Education Council had sent the team to inspect the colleges in Chitwan following complaints that they were being run without proper infrastructures. nepalnews.com
