Nay Pyi Taw, 18 June — MPs at the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw on Thursday continued to discuss the education amendment bill, on which the Pyithu Hluttaw and the Amyotha Hluttaw had not agreed.
Dr Banyar Aung Moe, U Tin Yu and U Khin Maung Yi argued in favour of the Amyotha Hluttaw’s proposals for designing curricula applicable to real life in terms of the acquisition of knowledge, expertise and critical thinking. The Amyotha Hluttaw has suggested abolishing the current exam system, saying it encourages rote learning. It has also called for inclusion of vocational training on agriculture and livestock at primary and secondary levels.
The government’s response to the privatization of the Yeku broadcasting station sparked a debate, with Union Minister of Information U Ye Htut explaining the matter to the parliament. MNA
