Nay Pyi Taw, 25 March — Representatives of Amyotha Hluttaw discussed on Wednesday changes of the words in the National Education Law and the amendment bill on this law.
U Nu, an MP of Yangon Region constituency 10, suggested the word preschool in Myanmar language should not be shortened in the law and fully defined the term of preschool that aims to nurture physical, mental and moral practices of the children before proceeding to learn higher levels.
He also urged substitution of ‘mother ethnic language’ with ‘individual ethnic language’ in the bill, saying his support for the paragraphs that mention special programmes, teaching aids and methodologies for the disabled persons.
Defence Services personnel representatives Major Aung Ko Min suggested inserting the words ‘all-round systematic thinking’ to replace ‘freedom of thinking’ which he assumed  the latter would lead to wrong thinking for the children.
U Ohn Tin, an MP of Rakhine State constituency 10, also discussed some changes of words
in the bill.
Later, members of Amyotha Hluttaw’s Bill Committee and representatives who supported student protests against the National Education Law discussed details for the amendment bill. MNA
