Here, what we should be aware of is that we all walk the same path, despite having different methods of revolution. We are meeting because we share the same path. Therefore, it will only be appropriate if we, who are riding on the same boat and going on the same journey, unite and support each other as much as possible.”

On May 10, Ja Htoi Pan, Deputy Minister for Education, made a clear statement on the rumours about the opening of NUG’s Federal Education High School in Mizoram, India, as follows:

“The photo found in the news is from a refugee community in Mizoram, India. From ethnic group leaders of relevant ethnic group organisations. Schools in this area are outside the purview of the NUG-MOE as per policy, so there is no such scenario where the Ministry recognises them. However, it is an area where we are establishing ties to assist the children in the area who are studying and the CDM teachers.”

3. Deputy Minister U Maw Htun Aung states that CDM students will benefit if the newly adopted education policy is put into action

On May 11, U Maw Htun Aung, Deputy Minister for Electricity and Energy of the National Unity Government, stated on the social media about newly adopted Federal Democracy Education Policy that CDM students will benefit if it is put into action.

“This is the education policy I want to see in my life: one that fosters multiculturalism and values local resources. We don’t have to wait for the next generation to benefit from this policy; CDM students will begin to enjoy its benefits as soon as it is made into laws (basic, legislation, or education law) and put into practise by organisations,” he stated.

The National Unity Consultative Council (NUCC) meeting, which was held on May 8, 2023, approved the Second Draft of the Federal Democracy Education Policy, which subsequently went public that same day.
