On May 25, Daw Thet Mon Aye, Magway Region Hluttaw MP for Seikphyu Township No. 1 Constituency, urged the students’ parents to continue to boycott military slavery education in the coming school registration season.

She said, “The students’ parents should not register their children at the schools run by the military council. At this time, parents and students are in a difficult situation.The NUG has already established a policy, and now there will be a grading system based on age and intelligence for those students not going to military-run schools. I understand the feelings of students and parents about not being able to go to school. The sacrifice to get a good system is big, and we are very grateful for everyone’s understanding.”

At present, the terrorist military forces have been stationed in places like schools, monasteries, and village administrative offices as their fortresses.

Deputy Education Minister Dr. Sai Khaing Myo Tun also said previously: “The schools that the military council will open will only be ones to be used for political purposes that will prolong military slavery education. They’re just to be used to run their administrative mechanisms. They do not have an adequate number of teachers. My final point is that we need to root out the system in which the generals dominate the general public. They are an organisation that has seized power unjustly and are oppressing and torturing the public by using money provided by the public. They are tyrants.”

The National Unity Government is providing services in basic education, higher education, vocational education, and teacher training nationwide, including online, on-ground, and digital-based learning, with a total of more than 150,000 CDM teachers and education staff to ensure the people’s education is not interrupted.
