According to the Ministry of Education, action will be taken against private schools that do not register to be closed.

According to the statement, the Deputy Minister for Education, Dr Zaw Myint notified some large schools of not submitting their applications yet, to submit registration applications before the deadline on 28 March.

Schools that do not submit registration applications will be closed after 12 May 2024, which is one year from the date of the law enforcement, and newly opened private schools must also apply for registration as soon as possible.

In addition, the Deputy Minister for Education has informed that as the provision of the law stipulates that private schools shall not appoint those who don’t have private teacher ID.  Teachers need to attend teacher training courses without fail at educational universities and educational degree colleges to be opened starting in April.
