Aqeel Razzaq President All Private Schools Executive Association (PSEA) on Friday rejected the Private Regulatory Authority Bill which would be tabled in the next scheduled session of the provincial assembly.
Aqeel Razaq said that the bill was a means creating a gateway for bureaucratic interference in education matters. Aqeel said that 25,000 private schools would remain closed from Saturday to protest the Private Regulatory Authority.
According to president the bill would make it compulsory for private school operators to consult the provincial education department for induction and termination of teachers.
He said that the bill would become an impediment in the way of investment in private education sector, adding that the upcoming legislation also threatened the existence of private schools in operation.
